A sequel to Sunny Deol’s 2001 blockbuster Gadar: Ek Prem Katha is underway and the story will be a continuation from the original film with a backdrop of India-Pakistan.
The 62 year-old Sunny has recently joined BJP and began new innings politics. He is the party’s candidate from Gurdaspur constituency in Punjab.
The film, directed by Anil Sharma, ranks among the top three Indian films in all-time highest footfalls.
According to sources, it had 170 million footfalls and had earned Rs 256 crore (Rs 2.56 billion) upon its release in 2001. It was a Blockbuster at the Box-office.
“We have been working on the Gadar sequel since 15 years. Gadar will be story of Tara (Sunny), Sakeena (Ameesha Patel) and Jeet (their son played by Utkarsh Sharma). The story will move ahead with the India-Pakistan angle, Gadar is incomplete without it,” a source close to the film’s production told PTI.
“The cast will remain the same, like how we have seen in films like Baahubali, Rambo, Fast and Furious, etc,” the source added. “We have discussed the idea with Sunny. We can’t disclose anything at the moment.”
