Veteran actors Dharmendra and Shatrughan Sinha, who worked together in many successful films in their heydays, are set to reteam after a huge gap of 20 years. The duo, who first starred together in the 1974 movie Dost, was last seen in Zulm-O-Sitam (1998). They will now be seen in the upcoming comic-caper Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se.
Dharmendra is psyched up about joining forces with Shatrughan Sinha after so many years. Talking about the actor, he says that Sinha is like a younger brother to him.
“We have been close ever since Dost, our first film together. His birthday is on December 9 while mine is a day earlier. He would bring gifts for my birthday and I jokingly flung them at him saying, ‘take it back’. We are like a family. Shatru is like a younger brother to me. His wife Poonam played my younger sister in Aadmi Aur Insaan (1969), her second film.”
Spilling some beans on their characters in Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se, Dharmendra says, “He’s playing a judge and I’m a lawyer. It’s interesting because he must do his duty as well as maintain our relationship. I can’t reveal more because it will give the story out.”
Also starring Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol in lead roles, Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se is scheduled to release on 31st August, 2018.
