This is the reason why when he had to dance on a song, the entire set was made empty so that no one would make fun of him after seeing his dance.
Sunny was born on 19 October 1957 to Dharmendra and Prakash Kaur. Earlier his name was Ajay Singh Deol, but then everyone started calling him Sunny lovingly. Sunny was very shy in childhood. He did not like to talk to anyone much.
In his teenage years, Sunny also wanted to become an actor like his father, so Dharmendra sent him to England to study filmmaking. Sunny returned to India after studying acting from the Old World Theater in Birmingham. Here Dharmendra launched him in 1983 with the film Betaab, directed by Rahul Rawail.
Sunny got engaged to Pooja at the age of 14. When Pooja’s father came to know that Sunny was working in films, he felt that Sunny would leave his daughter Pooja. He also kept pressurizing Dharmendra to marry Sunny with Pooja.
Dharmendra kept telling them to wait till the release of the film Betaab, after that he would get them married, but Pooja’s father did not agree to this. After this Dharmendra had to accept his words. However, Dharmendra believed that this marriage should take place in a secret manner as it would have a negative impact on Sunny’s career. On the insistence of Pooja’s father and Dharmendra’s advice, Sunny-Pooja’s secret marriage took place in England.
After the release of the film Betaab, both of them got married again in the presence of close friends and family. After marrying Pooja, Sunny became the father of two sons, Karan and Rajbir. When Amrita met Sunny on the sets of Betaab, Sunny did not tell her that he was married. While working together, their closeness increased. After some time, when the news of Sunny’s marriage was published in the newspapers, he still called it a mere rumour.
As soon as Sunny’s mother Prakash Kaur came to know that he was dating Amrita, she objected. Later, when it was confirmed that Sunny was really married, Amrita was devastated, but she wanted to maintain her relationship with Sunny. Amrita agreed, but her mother Rukhsana was strongly against it. Ultimately, Amrita and Sunny separated for the sake of the family.

Rather, it was changed at the last moment. He also said that if the old climax was shown, there was a fear that the film would flop.
Sunny had told, in the real climax of the film, Sakina (Ameesha Patel) dies due to a bullet. We felt that if Sakina dies, the story will turn tragic and may get a negative response from the audience. So we decided to keep the ending of the film happy. That’s why we showed how Sakina sits up when she hears her son’s song.

Even then Sunny kept the same condition that during the shooting of the song, only a few people other than the choreographer and the director should be present on the set so that no one could make fun of her bad dancing skills. Accepting his demand, the makers got the set vacated and only then Sunny completed the shooting.
