Sunny Deol: there's no shortcut to success

Sunny Deol, whose father Dharam Singh is better known as Dharmendra - one of Bollywood's biggest stars, has warned his own son that real success comes only with hard work. Despite coming from an acting family, Deol said that he is trying to teach 21-year-old Karan to carve a niche for himself on the basis of good character and commitment to his craft. "I tell Karan to be a good person, to work hard. I tell him there's no shortcut to success," Deol told reporters. Karan recently worked as an assistant director on Yamla Pagla Deewana 2, which stars both his father and his uncle Bobby as well as his famous grandfather. Deol said that his father Dharmendra was a self-made man and advises his son to follow in those footsteps. – IANS
