It’s a special day for the Deol brothers. Twenty-three years ago today, Sunny and Bobby Deol’s first film together – Dillagi – released in theatres. It was directed by Sunny Deol and stars the siblings opposite Urmila Matondkar. Recalling memorable moments from the film on Saturday, Sunny Deol shared a montage comprising shots from the 1999 emotional drama. He wrote, “Dillagi will always remain close to my heart. Got to direct and act with Bob (Bobby Deol) for the first time. Had so much fun during the shoot. Much love to all involved. 23 years of Dillagi.” The movie shows the story of two brothers Rajvir and Ranvir (played by Bobby and Sunny Deol), who fall in love with the same woman, Shalini (Urmila).
For those who don’t know, Dillagi also marked Sunny Deol’s first film as a director. Actors such as Dara Singh, Zohra Sehgal and Preity Zinta have also worked in this film.
