Actor Sunny Deol and Poonam Dhillon first worked together in the 1984 drama Sohni Mahiwal, and the duo reunited on Monday for the launch of their children in the upcoming romantic comedy drama Dono.

The film marks the debut of star kids — Rajveer Deol, son of actor Sunny Deol and Pooja Deoland Paloma Dhillon, daughter of Poonam Dhillon and producer Ashok Thakeria. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Sunny’s elder son Karan Deol made his acting debut with the 2019 film Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas, which was directed by his father. Dono is set to release on October 5.
