Bollywood actor Sunny Deol is set to return to the big screen with the crime drama Soorya, which he began working on in 2022. Directed by M Padmakumar, Soorya is an official adaptation of the acclaimed Malayalam film Joseph (2018). The remake features Deol in the role of a retired cop who is drawn back into the investigative world to solve a murder case, ultimately uncovering a sinister organ-harvesting racket.

Sunny Deol To Restart Soorya After First Schedule Long Back In 2022

According to a report in Mid-Day, the production for Soorya initially commenced in Jaipur in 2022, but due to various scheduling conflicts and Deol’s commitment to other projects, the film’s completion was delayed. However, sources have now confirmed that Deol plans to finish shooting Kamal Mukut’s production by November 2024. This timeline aligns with Deol’s current engagements, as he is in the process of wrapping up another project, Lahore 1947.

Deepak Mukut, son of producer Kamal Mukut, shared insights into the film’s progress, stating, “We have completed over 80 percent of the film. Sunny will complete the shoot very soon.” Despite the extended hiatus, Mukut emphasized the importance of patience and understanding in the film industry. Deepak added, “He was busy with other projects, and we were trying to work out the dates. We have enjoyed a wonderful relationship with the Deol family for ages, and it’s fine that Sunny couldn’t shoot for our film earlier. We understand his compulsions.”

The decision to cast Deol in the lead role came after he watched Joseph and expressed a keen interest in its gritty narrative. Deepak Mukut recounted Deol’s enthusiasm for the project, noting that the actor immediately agreed to join the remake on the condition that it maintain the same level of intensity and realism as the original. He added, “Sunny is also involved in the creative process. His relationship with us is far more important [than a film]. We’ll wait for him.”
