Actor Sunny Deol, who is back in action with "Singh Saab The Great", believes there's no point in remaking any of his father Dharmendra's films as they are "iconic".

When IANS asked Sunny if he'd like to join the remake brigade and bring back any of his father's films to the big screen, he said: "I wouldn't do it for any other reason because dad's films have been such iconic films."

Veteran star Dharmendra, 77, is known for movies like "Phool Aur Paththar", "Sholay", "Seeta Aur Geeta" and "Chupke Chupke".

Sunny said: "There is magic in them. The way the directors directed them, it's wonderful! We don't have directors who can understand the detailing of those films. I feel we should just see them and appreciate them.

"You can pick up an idea from them, but can't remake. I can't remake his films as they are iconic."

"Singh Saab The Great", directed by Anil Sharma, released Friday.
