Deol family now want to do comedy together

Aug 5, 2007 Subhash K. Jha

Mumbai, Aug 5 (IANS) After the family drama "Apne", Dharmendra and sons Sunny and Bobby Deol want to do a film together again - but an out and out comedy this time.

"We made you cry in 'Apne'. Now we want to make you laugh," says Bobby.

This is the promise he had made on his family's behalf in London earlier this month when a saleslady at a departmental store accused him of making her sister cry with his roles.

On his return home, Bobby discussed the idea with elder brother Sunny who was all game for it. And now the hunt is on for a comic script that would showcase the Deol family as effectively as "Apne".

"See, drama is relatively easier. And still we had to wait for years before Anil Sharma, a family friend, could come up with the script for 'Apne'," Bobby points out.

"Comedy that would accommodate all three of us is even tougher, specially since dad has done such great comic work in 'Chupke Chupke', 'Pratigya' and 'Sholay'."

If the comic screenplay doesn't materialise, the trio will go ahead with another drama, directed again by Anil Sharma.

But this time, the Deols will produce the family film since they feel "Apne" wasn't promoted properly.

"And still it has touched hearts of viewers across the world. We've decided to work together as often as possible. 'Apne' will always remain a favourite.

"'Dillagi' that my Bhaiyya directed with both me and him in the lead is also very close to my heart," Bobby says.
