Sunny Deol expressed, “I am highly grateful to the fans for their unwavering support for Gadar: Ek Prem Katha, and I assure that Gadar 2 will deliver double the action, emotions, and entertainment.”
Director Anil Sharma shared, “We are excited about bringing back a story that epitomizes patriotism, intense action, a heartwarming father-son bond, and a love story that transcends all boundaries.”
Gadar 2 is co-produced by Anil Sharma and Zee Studios. The film will release in cinemas on August 11.
The Anil Sharma-directed romantic-action drama was set during the Partition of India and created history at the box office when it released in 2001. The film starred the late Amrish Puri in a pivotal role. It revolves around Tara Singh (portrayed by Sunny), a Sikh truck driver from Amritsar, who falls in love with Sakina (portrayed by Ameesha), a Muslim girl hailing from a political family in Lahore, Pakistan. Utkarsh played the role of Sunny and Ameesha’s son in the first part.
The re-release of Gadar last month came ahead of the sequel’s release. Excited about the second part, Sunny earlier said, “Gadar – Ek Prem Katha has been an eminent part of my life, personally as well as professionally. Tara Singh from Gadar isn’t just a protagonist but went on to become a cult icon that defied all odds and crossed all boundaries for his Family and Love. Collaborating with the team after, 22 years was a creatively enriching experience.”
