I wanted to be a sportsman: Deol

MUMBAI: Bollywood actor and film-maker Sunny Deol, currently awaiting the release of his forthcoming film Ghayal Once Again, says he wanted to be a sportsman at one time.

“I never knew I was going to become an actor. Since I was more into sports, I wanted to be a sportsman,” Deol, who has been in the film industry for over three decades, said on a TV show.

The 58-year-old said that sports gives him an adrenaline rush and that “it feels like I’m going to go out and conquer anything. It makes you get rid of all the negativity in your mind and think positive”.
