Sub-heading 2: Parental Support and Wishes

At the trailer launch of the film here, Deol and Dhillon wished their kids luck and hoped the media would be gentle towards them while asking them questions. “I have given my son to you; just take care of him. We expect our kids to do great, and whatever they do, we will always be proud of them,” Sunny said when asked what he is expecting from Rajveer with his debut film.

  • Sunny Deol and Poonam Dhillon express their support for their children’s debut.
  • Sunny Deol hopes the media will be kind towards his son Rajveer.
  • Parental pride and confidence in their children’s abilities.

Sub-heading 3: Media Presence and Confidence

The actor, who has been on a promotional spree for his latest Gadar 2, said he has no “tips” for the newcomers on how to field media questions except for that they should always be honest. “When I speak, I speak from my heart. Sometimes I say the wrong things too, but I say it. The kids were being told (backstage) how to talk, and what to say. Beta ghabraya hua tha (The son was nervous), that ‘Dad they’re saying this, that.’ I told him to speak his heart out, as he will say the right thing,” he added.

  • Sunny Deol advises newcomers to be honest while answering media questions.
  • Sunny Deol supports his son in speaking his heart out.
  • Embracing mistakes and speaking from the heart.

Sub-heading 4: Changes in the Entertainment Industry

Poonam Dhillon said when they made their debuts, neither was the media so omnipresent nor were they themselves as “confident” to face the cameras as the kids today are. “We didn’t have to do all of this. Life has changed so drastically with promotions, social media and all of that. It’s such a daunting thing for newcomers, to face so many of you with your cameras and questions. So be kind and gentle to them. In fact, when I watch my first film, I realise today how gawky and awkward and shy I was! But when I saw these two in the film, you don’t feel at all like they’re newcomers. They’re so confident. Credit also goes to Avnish also for such wonderful work,” she added.

  • Poonam Dhillon advises the media to be kind and gentle to newcomers.
  • Contrasting experiences of the entertainment industry then and now.

Sub-heading 5: Directorial Debut

Dono also marks the directorial debut of filmmaker and producer Sooraj Barjatya’s son Avnish Barjatya. He has previously worked as an assistant director on his father’s films like Prem Ratan Dhan Payo and Uunchai.

Sub-heading 6: Sunny Deol’s Comparison

At the launch, the Gadar 2 actor compared Dono with Imtiaz Ali’s Socha Na Tha — which was the debut of Abhay Deol, Dharmendra’s nephew — which he had produced. Sunny Deol said Dono is perhaps a superior film than Socha Na Tha as it will be relatable to the younger generation. “Rajshri Productions always make family films; that’s what they are known for. They never lost their way… This film is also rooted in family values but is also about today’s generation. I have seen this film and all I can say is I had made a film called Socha Na Tha. I had shown that film to all the journalists back then and I was so proud of that film. Dono is nothing less than that or maybe more. Our director has done incredible work with this. This is a deep-rooted, youngsters’ film. I can vouch for that because I have seen it,” he added.

  • Relatability to the younger generation.
