Actor Sunny Deol seems to be unfazed by the cheating allegations.

Actor Sunny Deol, made headlines for his blockbuster movie Gadar 2 last year, has been accused of cheating a film producer of Rs 2.55 crore.

Sunny Deol on Thursday found himself in hot water after a film producer accused the actor of cheating him of Rs 2.55 crore. While the Gadar 2 star is yet to react to the shocking allegations, he has dropped an adorable comment on his brother, Bobby Deol’s anniversary post.

Bobby Deol shared a heartwarming anniversary post for his wife, Tania Deol, on his Instagram account late Thursday night. And Sunny was quick to like the post as well as drop a sweet comment under the couple’s picture. Sunny, who seems to be unfazed by the controversy, dropped a series of red heart emojis on his younger brother’s post.

Meanwhile, Sorav Gupta, a real estate developer turned producer who owns Sundawn Entertainment Pvt Ltd, has levelled shocking allegations of cheating, extortion and forgery against Sunny Deol.

Sorav claimed that he and his team met Sunny in May 2016 with the first draft of their film. The actor apparently agreed to do the movie for Rs 4 crore. “We paid him Rs 1 crore in advance. Then in October, he asked for another crore and we made that payment as well,” the producer told Times, adding that Sunny still didn’t start the shoot and went on to film for “Poster Boyz” instead.

The back and forth kept happening until 2022 when Sunny allegedly asked Sorav to change the film’s director and rework the script. “In 2023, he only suggested a subject to us. The name of the film was Ram Janmabhoomi. We were told that the script is ready, there is a director onboard and that we just need to execute it. The total budget of the movie was estimated to be around Rs 40 crore, which would be divided 50-50 between us and another partner,” Sorav claimed.

The producer further alleged, “In the next meeting, Sunny Deol assured us that the film will be made. But then, he said that his fee has now gone up. So we reached an agreement that Sunny Deol will get Rs 2 crore extra from the profit. Then he requested us to give him Rs 50 lakh more, saying that his son’s wedding was coming up. He told us that he would fetch big returns for the project from the satellite and digital sales. So we paid him Rs 50 lakh.”

Later, Sorav was shocked to receive a hard copy of the agreement that stated Sunny hiked his fee to Rs 8 crore, plus Rs 2 crore from the profits. “In all these years, we have spent up to Rs 25 crore directly or indirectly on the project, including the Rs 2.55 crore paid to Sunny Deol,” the producer claimed.
