Actress Ameesha Patel claims that the upcoming sequel to Gadar is a story-driven film rather than a remake.
Ameesha Patel spoke with the media while a Mumbai studio was inaugurated.
We asked the actress about Gadar 2 and its release, and Ameesha said, “Gadar 2 will probably release in the first half of 2023, perhaps within the first 3-4 months. The biggest and most iconic film of the Indian film industry is getting a sequel, and I am happy about it.”
“Like I always say, it is rare to find iconic films, one in a decade if you’re lucky and being a part of one is a huge deal for an artist, and to get a second part of the film, and I don’t think it has happened before in Indian cinema. None of the iconic films got a sequel, not even in Hollywood, until recently when Tom Cruise got Top Gun 2, and he also took the same character and took the story forward,” added Ameesha.
Superstar Sunny Deol and Utkarsh Sharma also appear in the Anil Sharma-directed movie.
When asked if Gadar 2 was perhaps a remake with nothing new to offer, Ameesha said, “Most of the sequels don’t have the same characters. Usually, they come with new characters new storyline, but with Gadar, the characters are the same, the vibe and pulse of the movie are the same, and I am quite excited for the sequel. The film is based on India-Pakistan, set against 1971’s historical backdrop. Gadar 2 is not a remake; we’re taking the story forward.”
Gadar is a love story between a truck driver and a wealthy Muslim girl set against the backdrop of the 1941 Partition Riots.
