Sunny Deol speaks about his iconic ‘Tareekh pe tareekh’ scene


“Tareekh pe tareekh, tareekh pe tareekh, tareekh pe tareekh milti gayi My Lord, par insaaf nahin mila….” Sunny Deol’s bitter rant against blindfolded justice still echoes in the courtroom of our memory 23 years after the release of Rajkumar Santoshi’s social drama ‘Damini’. The performance bagged the actor the Filmfare Black Lady. After receiving the trophy from Saira Banu, Sunny admitted that when Santoshi narrated the story to him, he hadn’t expected him to be interested in a supporting role. “But I fell in love with this down-on-his-luck lawyer who’s become an alcoholic. There was a flashback with Raveena Tandon as my wife, but it wasn’t shot as the film had already become too lengthy,” he’d revealed in an interview in 1994.6a00e551a4e0f3883301bb07ef09de970d
