Sunny Deol made his debut as a Bollywood actor in 1983 with Rahul Rawail's musical superhit Betaab. He established his space as an action superstar with Rajkumar Santoshi's Ghayal (1990), which was produced by Dharmendra, and later went on to entertain the audience in numerous films including Border, Damini, Gadar: Ek Prem Katha, Ghatak, Ziddi, Yateem and Dacait and Arjun.

His power-packed performances were often highlighted by heavy-duty dialogues, memorably "Dhai kilo ka haath" and "Tarikh pe tarikh". Sunny also gave direction a shot with Dillagi (1999), Ghayal Once Again (2016) and Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas (2019). In April 2019, Sunny joined Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and went on to win the Gurdaspur Lok Sabha seat in last year's general elections.
