Navin Chaudhury sought approval of Sunny Deol before hiting him up for a scene in Radhika Rao and Vinay Sapru’s next film I Love NY. For a sequence, Navin had to strangulate and punch the actor but he was afraid to do so out of huge respect. He basically went to Sunny and told him about his trepidation about the particular scene.
Says a source from the crew, “Sunny is a popular name in London and Navin’s family too are Sunny’s fans. He was hesitant before doing that scene so he asked Sunny if he should do it. The unit folk couldn’t stop laughing when after the shot he asked Sunny if he was hurt.”
The source adds, “Navin thought that the people who were watching the shoot in London would beat him up if he punched Sunny in front of them!”
