Sunny Deol faced criticism recently after a video surfaced on Instagram, showing him sharing a laugh with Vindu Dara Singh and others at the funeral of director Raj Kumar Kohli. Kohli, who was the father of actor Armaan Kohli, passed away on Saturday, leading to a funeral that same evening and a prayer meet on Sunday, attended by various Bollywood personalities including Sunny Deol, Shatrughan Sinha, and Jackie Shroff.

In the video Sunny Deol and Vindu Dara Singh are seen leaving the prayer meet, seemingly engaged in light-hearted banter. The presence of Armaan Kohli in the video drew criticism on social media, with users describing the behavior of Deol and Singh as "shameless" and expressing disappointment at their seemingly inappropriate laughter in the solemn setting.

Comments on social media highlighted the perceived lack of respect, with users condemning the duo for laughing at a funeral and questioning the appropriateness of their behavior, particularly given the presence of the deceased person's son. The general sentiment expressed was one of disappointment and disapproval.
