Actor Sunny Deol is currently working to produce a documentary as well a book on his father Dharmendra who is a legendary actor, adding a lot of contribution to the Indian Cinema. A source close to the development said,"A team that includes writers, camera crew and other technicians has been finalised and has started the work on the docu-drama that will encapsulate Dharmendra’s life over the last eight decades."
A team of writers is working on the biography as well as the source. While Sunny Deol said, "He remembers the smallest details of his films, of the people he met during the course of his life and the life he lived in Punjab before he came to Mumbai to become a movie star."
Sunny conducted a press conference to announce for the same.
Dharmendra was born on December 8, 1935. He went on to make his debut in 'Dil Bhi Tera Hum Bhi Tere' in 1960. Among his early films were Bimal Roy's 'Bandini' (1963) and 'Haqeeqat' (1964). 'Phool aur Pathar' (1966) is credited with having catapulted Dharmendra towards stardom, and the solid run continued, with exceptions, until the 1980s.
His known work in recent times is 'Johnny Gaddaar' (2007) and the 'Yamla Pagla Deewana' series, in which he stars alongside his actor sons Sunny and Bobby Deol. Another book by journalist Rajiv Vijayakar on the legendary actor will be out in December next year.
