Suniel Shetty played the role of a soldier named Bhairon Singh in the 1997 Indian war film Border. The film was directed by J. P. Dutta and also starred Sunny Deol, Akshaye Khanna, Jackie Shroff, and Pooja Bhatt, among others. Border was based on the real-life events that took place during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971 and focused on the Battle of Longewala. Suniel Shetty's portrayal of Bhairon Singh was praised by both critics and audiences and the film was a commercial success.
Suniel Shetty lauds Border director J.P. Dutta; says, “I feel we need more such directors in today’s time”
Talking about Border IANS quoted Suniel Shetty saying, “For me, the film Border didn't have reel characters. They are real-life characters. I feel we can never do justice to those characters and that uniform. But somewhere, I feel that portraying them on celluloid and bringing them closer to the audience has been a small contribution towards the real-life heroes. The film makes the audience remember that the freedom we enjoy is because of our soldiers.”
Suniel also spoke highly for the director of the film. He said, “J.P Dutta is an absolute genius as that man never looked at the monitor or through the camera, he just knew exactly where to put the block and he would just instruct the cameraman. He always knew what the frame would be. I feel we need more such directors in today's time. He is also very spontaneous; he would improvise scenes on the spot.”
On the work front, Shetty made his OTT debut last year with Dharavi Bank for MX Player. Directed by Samit Kakkad, the web series saw him play a gangster from Mumbai with Vivek Oberoi essaying the role of a cop. His latest web series Hunter – Tootega Nahin Todega released just a few days back on Amazon miniTV.
Shetty will be next seen in Hera Pheri 4, reuniting with co-stars Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal. Rawal had earlier shared that the film's shoot will begin in three months and the trio of Raju, Shyam, and Babu Bhaiyya, will travel abroad for the third film.
