Sunny Deol and Shah Rukh Khan End 30-Year-Long Cold War, Congratulates on Gadar 2 Success

It appears that actors Sunny Deol and superstar Shah Rukh Khan have finally put an end to their 30-year-long feud. Sunny recently confirmed that all is well between the two and revealed that Shah Rukh congratulated him on the success of “Gadar 2.”

For those unfamiliar with the backstory, Sunny and SRK had previously collaborated in the 1993 film “Darr” and reportedly never worked together again. Furthermore, they had not spoken to each other for 16 years. However, both actors have moved on, and Sunny recently shared insights into his renewed relationship with Shah Rukh.

Sunny Deol’s “Gadar 2” has been enjoying massive success at the box office, breaking several records along the way. This significant triumph has undeniably revitalized Deol’s career, which had faced some challenges in recent times.

In an interview with Times Now, the “Ghayal” actor confirmed that he and his “Darr” co-star Shah Rukh Khan had buried the hatchet long ago. Sunny disclosed that Shah Rukh Khan had called him to extend his best wishes for the success of “Gadar 2.”

Sunny said, “Shah Rukh Khan had seen the film. Before that, he had called me and wished me well. He was so happy, and he told me ‘I’m so happy, you genuinely deserve it,’ and I said thank you. Then I spoke to his wife, Gauri Khan, and his son, Aryan Khan. He said, ‘Tonight we are going to be watching this film.’ And after that, he had seen it, and I think that is when he tweeted.”

He further expressed, “It was so beautiful. Many times I’ve also called him up, and we shared our thoughts on certain things. About the past issues – whatever they were, I would say time heals everything and we move ahead. That’s the way life should be.”

Regarding the rift between Shah Rukh Khan and Sunny Deol, it was reported that Sunny was unhappy with how Shah Rukh’s character, a stalker in “Darr,” was glorified, especially when he saw himself as the actual ‘hero’ of the film. He mentioned during an appearance on “Aap Ki Adalat,” “At the end of the day, people loved me in the film.”

Sunny added, “They loved Shah Rukh Khan as well. My only issue with the film was that I did not know they would glorify the villain. I always work in films with an open heart and believe the person. I believe working with trust. Unfortunately, we have many actors and stars who don’t function in this manner. Maybe that’s the way they want to get their stardom.”

Regarding not speaking to Shah Rukh for 16 years, Sunny clarified, “It’s not that I didn’t talk, but I just cut myself off, and I anyway don’t socialize much. So we never met, toh baat karne ki baat he nahi hai.”

Meanwhile, “Gadar 2” continues to run successfully at the box office, having earned an impressive Rs 450 crore.
