There has lately been a lot of hoopla about the Rs.100 crore club, but Sunny Deol, who has been active in filmdom for three decades, says the trend has been there as long as he can remember – but it was never hyped. The 56-year-old, who debuted with superhit romantic drama ‘Betaab’ in 1983, is surprised at the hype around movies grossing over Rs.100 crore.
“I don’t understand why it is hyped so much. There are films that have earned much more than Rs.100 crore, but it was never hyped earlier,” Sunny said in a group interview. “It’s only now that people make an issue out of it. My film ‘Gadar- Ek Prem Katha’ had earned several crores. It was a blockbuster. People appreciated the work and the storyline,” he added.
