Before Gadar 2’s Success, Sunny Deol Gave These 15 Flops

Check out the long list of Sunny Deol's flop films in the last 20 years.

Action superstar of the 90s, Sunny Deol, is currently enjoying the success of his latest film Gadar 2. The film has already entered Rs 300 crore club at the box office and seems unstoppable, especially in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities. Though it is a happy moment for Sunny Deol, the road to this success hasn’t been easy. Sunny made his Bollywood debut in 1983 with the superhit film Betaab. Over the years, he delivered amazing films like Chaal Baaz, Ghayal, Narsimha, Ghatak, Border and Gadar: Ek Prem Katha. However, when the era of 90s was over, Sunny Deol suffered a major setback in his career. While contemporary action stars Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Sanjay Dutt managed to mould their career with changing times, Sunny delivered many flop films. In the last two decades, Sunny Deol gave over 15 flop films before he could enjoy the historic success of Gadar 2.
