Karan Deol’s nickname inspired from Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky


After being in the industry for 37 years himself, Sunny Deol is now launching his son Karan with ‘Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas’. The flick seems to be a love story, directed by Sunny himself. This will be father’s directorial debut. Despite directing a mushy story, Sunny is known to be a tough man in films. He is a big Sylvester Stallone fan and the Indian actor’s favorite film, starring Sly is ‘Rocky’. That’s when papa Deol decided to keep his son Karan Deol’s nickname as Rocky! Out of the eight ‘Rocky’ series films, the fifth was released in November 1990 and Karan too born in the same month and year. So when he was born, Sunny decided to call him Rocky and that became his pet name at home.
