When Sunny Deol pushed the release of his upcoming movie, Ghayal Once Again, from January 15 to February 5, he attributed the delay to enhancing certain visual effects. However, it turns out that financial woes compelled him to defer the date. According to industry sources, the actor-filmmaker has allegedly mortgaged his dubbing and recording studio, Sunny Super Sound, which also houses his office, a preview theatre and two other post-production suites, to raise monies needed for the release.
As per sources, the studio is Sunny’s dream and he spent a huge amount of money to redo the entire place, including installing new systems in keeping with the modern technology. However, 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.
Sunny’s manager Sunil Saini has, however, denied the news, saying, “There’s no truth to these reports. This is Sunny sir’s most ambitious project and we have regular financing. There’s no question of mortgage or anything like that. We certainly don’t need any negativity around our project.”
