In a recent conversation with Bollywood Hungama, Sunny dismissed these reports. He clarified that his fees for future projects will be decided when he signs his next film. The actor said, “First of all, I feel money matters are very personal. No one shares exactly what he or she earns, even to (the) close ones. Secondly, what I charge or don’t charge will be decided when I sign my next film. Right now, we are all trying to process of enormity of the success of Gadar 2.”

Sunny Deol went on to emphasise his unwavering confidence in his abilities, highlighting that he doesn’t engage in negotiations. He said, “I know my worth. Even in my lowest ebb, I didn’t compromise with my price. At the same time, main samajhdaar insaan hoon. I know today Sunny Deol is being seen in a different light. Lekin main toh wahi hoon jahan main tha. Logon ka nazariya badal gaya hai (I am where I was, people’s perception has changed).” adding, “For me my family is my greatest wealth. Aur kya chahiye?”

Gadar 2 revolves around the character of Tara Singh, who crosses the border into Pakistan during the 1971 conflict in a bid to rescue his captive son.
