I`m not a believer in Oscars: Sunny Deol
Mumbai: National Award winning actor Sunny Deol, who is busy promoting his film ‘I Love New Year’, is contented with Indian audience and doesn`t feel the need to go to the Oscars.
"What is the need for Indians to go to the Oscars? (Indians ko Oscar jaane ki zaroorat kya hai?). Aren`t we happy here? Make the Indian audience happy. We have a population of 130 crore, is it not enough?" Sunny Deol told reporters during the theatrical trailer release of "I Love New Year" Monday.
In his 30 years` acting journey, the 56-year-old bagged two National Awards for ‘Ghayal’ and ‘Damini’ and says they came as a surprise to him.
"Everybody has an individual take on it. I am not a believer of these things (Oscars). I was surprised when I got the National Award. I was like how the hell did I get it?"
Media shy Sunny talked candidly at the event and said: "Everything is manipulated these days. Things are such that we ourselves give the news and read the other day."
Known for his action roles, the actor`s "I Love New Year" is a romantic comedy.
"As an actor I want to do everything. With comedy, it gets gentler... in action, it`s much about fighting. My fans should also see the other side of me," he said.
Co-directed by Vinay Sapru and Radhika Rao, 'I Love New Year' also features Kangna Ranaut in the female lead and is slated for an April 26 release.
