Sunny Deol will don the role of a Sanskrit teacher attired in dhoti and sporting a tikka and moustache in Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi’s forthcoming film Mohalla 80. Sunny appeared in a similar costume in the 1999 film Arjun Pandit.
Dr Dwivedi has made the popular TV serial Chanakya and his sensitive film Pinjar dealt with the Indo-Pak divide.
His latest film Mohalla 80 is based on a prize winning book that narrates the story of a teacher who fights hard to retain the principles he believes in. This film is scheduled to release in August.
Sunny Deol’s latest film Yamla Pagla Deewana where he co-starred with his father Dharmender and brother Bobby Deol has been a hit at the box office.
