Sunny Deol makes comeback with Deepak Tijori's 'Fox'

By Joginder Tuteja

Mumbai, June 1 (IANS) Sunny Deol, who was last seen in forgettable flicks like "Kaafila" and "Heroes", is set to make a comeback in "Fox" and director Deepak Tijori is certain Sunny's fans will appreciate him in his new avatar in the thriller.

"It's not an action movie but is basically a thriller. Sunny will be seen in a different light altogether in 'Fox' and so would Arjun (Rampal). Our film is a slick entertainer and comes with a new way of storytelling. I'm sure both Sunny and Arjun's fans would be happy to see them in a new avatar," Tijori told IANS.

Shot in Goa and Mumbai, "Fox" is a thriller about a cat and mouse chase between a criminal lawyer (Arjun) and a stranger who is controlling and threatening his life. Now the lawyer must seek the help of a reluctant cop (Sunny) in solving the mystery.

The actor-turned-director, who has wrapped up the film, is more than happy with the performance by the two heroes.

"The entire week gone by was an amazing experience since everyone came together to ensure that there were no more delays. Whether it was Sunny and Arjun or Udita Goswami and Sagarika Ghatge or newcomer Vipul Gupta - each of them was very cooperative."

A co-production by Tijori and Zee Motion Pictures, "Fox" had been stuck for a while since there were certain organisational changes within Zee Motion Pictures.

"All of that is thankfully sorted out with the change in guard that took place early this year. Sanjeev Lamba took over the reins when it came to completing 'Fox'. He has been instrumental in ensuring that the film makes good progress," said Tijori, whose last directorial venture was "Tom Dick and Harry" (2006).

But he is unable to give a release date for "Fox".

"It's difficult to do that right away because of the stand-off between producers and multiplex owners. So many other movies are already in the pipeline. Once they are released, we should be able to get a clearer picture. But, yes, one thing is for sure - we are certainly bringing out 'Fox' this year," the director said.
