Helmed by Anil Sharma, ‘Gadar 2’ is a sequel to the hit film which was released in theatres in 2001. Sunny Deol played the role of Tara, a truck driver, while Ameesha Patel played Sakina in the film that was set during the partition of India in 1947.
‘Gadar 2’ follows Tara Singh as he ventures across the border in a daring attempt to rescue his son, portrayed by Utkarsh Sharma, who has been captured in Pakistan.
Meanwhile, Sunny will be next seen collaborating with Aamir Khan and director Rajkumar Santoshi for an upcoming film ‘Lahore, 1947’.
Aamir will only be producing the film with his production house Aamir Khan Productions.
Rajkumar Santoshi and Sunny Deol have previously delivered three box office hits together in the form of ‘Ghayal,’ ‘Damini,’ and ‘Ghatak.’ Given this impressive track record.
Sunny and Aamir have never worked together before this. But the duo have had very iconic box-office clashes as competitors in the past, where both have eventually emerged victorious.
The first iconic clash at the ticket window was witnessed in 1990 when Aamir Khan’s ‘Dil’ and Sunny Deol’s ‘Ghayal’ were released on the same day.
Then in 1996, it was ‘Raja Hindustani’ vs ‘Ghatak’ followed by the most epic Box Office clash of Indian cinema in 2001 when ‘Lagaan’ was released on the same day as ‘Gadar’.
Now, for the very first time, the duo have come together and joined hands on a project.
‘Lahore, 1947’ also marks the reunion of Aamir Khan and Santoshi after their iconic cult classic, ‘Andaz Apna Apna’.
Further details about ‘Lahore, 1947’ are still awaited.
