Sunny Deol and Dulquer Salmaan will be playing lead characters in R Balki’s thriller “Chup”. A teaser of Chup was divulged lately. Balki reveals, "Chup is a thriller and there are a lot of Guru Dutt references in the film. It's not based on Guru Dutt, but you will hear of him and his films. Basically, it's about the artist in him."
Balki clarifies that all the actors have been cast for a particular reason. "I like to cast people not so much unexpectedly, but based on who I feel is closest to my character," tells Balki, informing further that there is nothing unusual about the casting. "This is a commercial film, a commercial thriller, but in a world never done before. The thought is very relevant today and the narrative isn't different from what we usually see. It's a new space for Sunny sir, but there is nothing unusual."
About the Sunny Deol’s reaction on the film story, Balki reveals, "He liked the story very much and just said, 'I would like to do it.' Sunny is actually a director himself, so he understood my vision even better. That aside, he is a very production friendly person. He was a darling to me on the set."
