Sunny Deol's upcoming movie "Ghayal Once Again" (previously titled as "Ghayal Returns") will show the actor beating the antagonists but the film also has a scene where Sunny was actually slapped by co-star Soha Ali Khan.

There was an intense scene, in which Sunny was unable to control his emotions and Soha was supposed to slap him to bring him back to senses.

However, Soha got so involved in the scene and character that she reportedly slapped Sunny very hard, which shocked everybody there.

"In a sequence where Sunny loses his cool, the actress slaps him to bring him back to his senses. But while shooting for the scene which was quite intense, Soha was so immersed in her characters that she did not realise that she had hit the actor really hard. Soha was of course extremely shocked, as were the others. However, being the cool guy that Sunny is, he understood Soha's situation and did not overreact. He just let it go," The Asian Age quoted a source as saying.

Soha plays the role of a psychiatrist in the sequel to Sunny's 1990 blockbuster "Ghayal".

Directed and written by Sunny himself, "Ghayal Once Again" is being considered as the actor's comeback movie, in which he will be seen as a saviour of four innocent teenagers.

The film is slated to be released on 15 January.
