He enjoys a huge fan club and many would be idolising him, but for Sunny Deol his "protective" father Dharmendra Singh Deol, Bollywood's 'He Man' of the 1960s and 1970s, is his all-time favourite hero.

"My dad is very protective about our family. In fact, we all are protective about each other, but he cannot bear if anything goes wrong to anyone," Sunny told IANS.

"My dad has been my hero since my childhood. Parents rub on to their children. You have that identity with little bit of your father, mother and granny. What a man turns out to be is a reflection of what he has absorbed from the family," he added.

Launched by his father with hit movie "Betaab" in 1983, Sunny proved his mettle with films like "Ghayal", "Damini" and "Gadar - Ek Prem Katha".

Despite completing three decades in showbiz, Sunny still shies away from media.

Asked him why, he said: "That's my nature. I am not basically upfront about everything. I enjoy being in the industry as an actor and that's what I basically want to do. I try and do good stuff, good stories I cannot go on to the stages."

The 56-year-old says Deols are happy in their own space.

"We don't indulge with anybody, we don't interfere with anybody, we are happy with what we are doing. We have our own space and we just do what we want to do. We are very honest people and we don't mess with anybody. Dad has been here for over 50 years now and that is the kind of respect that the family has," he said.

Tagged as an action hero, Sunny feels that "if the character is not lovable, then the action will not make any sense".

"It should be a saga of both action and emotions. I don't believe in action films, it should have a story. We can't go on beating people if there is no emotion to it. You speak dramatic thing because of the situation."

"As an actor I enjoy everything. I would like to do more variety because it lets me rediscover myself."

Sunny is currently gearing up for his film "Yamla Pagla Deewana 2", which is directed by Sangeeth Sivan and he has teamed up with his dad and brother Bobby in it. Anupam Kher to features in the fun drama slated for a June 7 release.
