Director Ashwani Dhir on Son Of Sardar (Interview)
In an interview, Son Of Sardar director Ashwani Dhir spoke about his ambitious Diwali release.
On some of the over-the-top comic sequences in the trailers of Son Of Sardar
- Ajay Devgn is not an over the top actor. We have good Punjabi humour in the film. It is all about the dialogues and it is not a slapstick comedy. It is large than life but not over the top.
On what’s different from the original Telugu film Maryada Ramanna
- The zone is completely different in both the films. Only plots are same, otherwise both the films are completely different. ‘Son Of Sardaar’ is a complete entertainment package. It is a Diwali film completely. It has a combination of everything from comedy to romance to action.
On the complaint filed in a court against Ajay Devgn, for maligning and defaming the Sikh community.
- The film is not based on Sikh religion. It could have been a Parsi, a Gujarati or a Muslim… The film is about Punjabi environment. Since Punjabis are larger than life, so is the film.We try to make different kind of films, which must entertain people. People want to laugh while watching a comedy. ‘Son Of Sardaar’ is about Punjabi values but it is entertaining at the same time.
On the future and the possibility of a Son Of Sardar sequel
- If it is a hit, then we might make it again as a series. It all depends on how the film does at the box office. We will talk after the film is a hit.
