Did Akshay Kumar help Sunny Deol?
On Monday, reports emerged that Akshay Kumar had extended financial assistance to Sunny Deol, to help him save the situation. However, there is no official confirmation to these claims.
Blast from the past
Back in 2017, similar reports had emerged, when Sunny Deol’s directorial venture ‘Ghayal Once Again’ was facing delays in release. TOI had reported that Sunny had to mortgage his dubbing and recording studio, the iconic Sunny Super Sound, owing to financial woes during the release of ‘Ghayal Once Again’. A source had revealed, “Financial issues kept mounting while he was making Ghayal’s sequel. He was in debt and had to repay a huge amount of money that he had borrowed from his financiers. So he mortgaged his studio to repay some of his debts. Once the film releases, he will be in a position to clear a few of the outstandings and reverse the mortgage.” When Sunny Deol was asked about this in 2017, Sunny had cryptically said, “Well, we mortgage everything for our films and even I heard about this, but I don’t react to such rumours.”
