The director of films like “Gadar – Ek Prem Katha“, “The Hero: Love Story of a Spy” and “Apne” has lots of original topics to work upon.

I don’t believe in remakes. I have my own subjects, then why should I remake any southern film. I am here to make my own films and not to copy other’s films. I want to show my creativity. I have around 200 stories in my mind and all are fresh stories.

Audience are excited about it. Sunny Deol is the real macho man of Bollywood. We have got positive response for the teaser. It’s a very powerful role and we needed someone as powerful as Sunny. Heroes should be powerful, but ultimately everybody wants to be like Sunny.
