Sunny – Anil team up for Singh Sahab The Great

Sunny Deol and director Anil Sharma, who have given hits like Gadar-Ek Prem Katha, The Hero – Love Story of a Spy and Apne, are now working together in Singh Sahab The Great.

Director Anil Sharma, whose last film was Salman Khan-starrer Veer in 2010, is very happy to get back to direction. “It is always exciting to get back to direction. For me it is always as if I am starting my first film. I feel as if I am going into a new class and preparing myself for a new exam,” he says.

When quizzed on casting Sunny Deol in the film, Anil says, “I chose Sunny because it is a very powerful character and I feel that Sunny is the most powerful action hero India has produced in 100 years.”

Speaking about the film, Anil says, “Singh Sahab The Great is the story of a District Collector, who wants to eradicate poverty and corruption. He is a very humourous and entertaining character. There is also a lot of action in the film. Sunny will be playing a sardar in the film. The script is written by Shaktiman, who wrote Gadar.”

“We are still in the process of finalizing the leading lady but we have two girls in mind. Till now we have finalized Sunny Deol and Prakash Raj, who will play a negative role in the film,” Anil added.

The first song of the film is composed by Anu Malik and has already been recorded. Singh Sahab The Great will go on floors by October-November and will be shot in Mumbai and on the borders of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh.

Speaking about his other film starring the Deol trio Dharmendra, Sunny and Bobby, Anil says, “I am supposed to make Masters with the three Deols. We will start work on that film after I am done with Singh Sahab The Great because the Deols are first working on Yamla Pagla Deewana sequel but we will start the shooting of Masters sometime next year.”
