While talking about his nephew, Sunny’s son Karan’s debut film, which Sunny is directing, Bobby said,
Bhaiyya had put his own career on hold to make sure my launch was shaping up the way he had planned. He was the producer of the film, but he was involved in everything. His friends used to tell him that he shouldn’t ignore his own work in the process, but he paid no heed. It was all he was interested in. And it’s exactly the same now. It’s all he eats, drinks, talks about and breathes.
