This downturn in “Dono’s” box office performance has significant implications for Rajveer Deol, who has been keenly anticipated as he steps into the world of acting, being the son of Bollywood stalwarts Sunny Deol and Pooja Deol. The film’s inability to resonate with audiences raises legitimate questions about Rajveer’s future prospects as an actor.
