However, clarifying on all these rumours, the producers of Gadar 2 star’s next tentatively titled Safar, Echelon Productions have come in support of Deol.
As per a statement given by Echelon Productions, the clip was shot on the sets of a film titled Safar, of which Sunny Deol is a part of. Speaking about the Sunny Deol video getting leaked, producer Vishal Rana, Echelon Production, “It was a scene from our forthcoming tentatively titled film Safar for which Sunny Paaji was shooting a night schedule.” In the statement, Mr. Rana also requested everyone to stop spreading such false info. “Request all the fans not to spread fake news around this video that is going viral on the internet,” he added. On the other hand, Sunny Deol too posted a clarification on X, formerly known as Twitter, saying, “Afwaahon ka ‘Safar’ bas yahin tak”.
The video, in question, was shot at the Juhu Circle in suburban Mumbai, and it featured the actor struggling to walk and wearing a goofy smile on his face.
