Mumbai: Actor Sunny Deol, who is back in action with ‘Singh Saab The Great’, believes there`s no point in remaking any of his father Dharmendra`s films as they are "iconic".

When asked Sunny if he`d like to join the remake brigade and bring back any of his father`s films to the big screen, he said: "I wouldn`t do it for any other reason because dad`s films have been such iconic films."

Veteran star Dharmendra, 77, is known for movies like ‘Phool Aur Paththar’, ‘Sholay’, ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’ and ‘Chupke Chupke’.

Sunny said: "There is magic in them. The way the directors directed them, it`s wonderful! We don`t have directors who can understand the detailing of those films. I feel we should just see them and appreciate them.

"You can pick up an idea from them, but can`t remake. I can`t remake his films as they are iconic."

‘Singh Saab The Great’, directed by Anil Sharma, released Friday.
