It’s been just a few months short of two years since Sunny Kaushal made his debut as a leading actor in the film, Bhangra Paa Le. After waiting for almost 21 months, Sunny finally has a release coming up with Dinesh Vijan’s Shiddat. The film also features Radhika Madan, Mohit Raina and Diana Penty and is going to release on October 1, direct-to-OTT.
Speaking about Shiddat, Sunny is pretty excited but doesn’t divulge much. “I would just say that it’s an out and out love story of Jaggi and Kartika, played by me and Radhika. We also have Mohit and Diana who are so beautiful in the film. Everything in the film is so intertwined that if I say anything I’ll have that Tom Holland moment where I blurt out some spoilers,” he quips.
The trailer of the film was recently released which was preceded by the first poster of the film. It saw Sunny and Radhika in an intense dancing pose, and the poster was appreciated for its intensity that it exuded. Mention that to Sunny and he has a similar reaction. “I was also pleasantly surprised by that. I saw the creative in the morning and went ‘Oh Wow’. The film is coming out of the poster and that’s a good thing,” he insists.
But ask Sunny how he dealt with the anxiousness of this long wait between his projects, and he says, “It was a forced waiting period as such that one couldn’t do anything about. The problem was something bigger than anyone’s personal issues, that we had to tackle together. Obviously, you wish something like this wouldn’t happen on the personal and the work front. But all said and done, it happened, so you make the best out of it. The good thing is that things are happening and moving now and as human beings we are given a brain to utilise and overcome adversities and we are doing that.”
