That the first trailer of Yamla Pagla Deewana was an instant hit is no news. That the film is carrying an excellent report is also no news. But did you know that the film was initially to star only Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol? It was only later that the brothers decided to rope in Dad.
Here’s how it happened. “After Apne, so many people told Papa that they loved the three of us together but we made them cry. So Papa wanted to make something which would make everyone laugh. Thus we made some changes in the script and roped him in,” confirms Bobby Deol. And the rumour that Sunny Deol cut the theatrical trailer and not director Sameer Karnik? “There’s no truth to that. I don’t know who started this rumour,” Deol replies.
