Veteran actor Dharmendra recently announced that he will be sharing the screen space in 'Apne 2' with his 2 sons—Sunny and Bobby—and his grandson Karan.

Even though his return to the screen will be after two years, he is more excited than ever to be back in front of the camera.

The actor will turn 85 on December 8. However, he doesn’t feel old and is excited about doing new work.

“I stopped counting my age after I turned 60. No matter what your age, you should keep your enthusiasm alive. I have childlike excitement about small things that life has to offer; I keep myself excited by thinking about what to do next as an actor. The camera loves me, and I become a different man when in front of it. I had dreamt of being an actor, and became one because of my fans. My biggest worry is that my fans may stop loving me. So, I keep myself grounded and consider myself a newcomer even today. I tell myself that I need to experiment with different roles,” he said in an interview to Mid-Day.

Dharmendra revealed, that he is open to the idea of working in web series.

“Every decade, the audience’s tastes change. So, you have to offer them the kind of cinema they enjoy. I am unstoppable as an actor and will do a web show. I am waiting for a good opportunity,” he said.

On Tuesday, Sunny had announced the 'Apne 2' project.

“With the blessings of Babaji and your love, all of us will be seen together, again. Feeling blessed to get a chance to work with my father, brother again this time with my son. #Apne2, in cinemas Diwali 2021,” the actor said in a tweet.

Dharmendra was last seen in 'Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se' in 2018.

The film also starred him with Sunny and Bobby. Dharmendra says they are known for creating ‘family entertainers’.
