Sunny Deol started off his career in the romantic drama Betaab in 1983. Directed by Rahul Rawail, the film also marked the launch of actress Amrita Singh as the leading lady. Later, Sunny acquired the image of an action hero. Although he tasted tremendous success in Arjun (1985), again with Rawail, the film that made him into Bollywood’s poster boy for action roles was Ghayal because of the hardcore nature of the film.
