Deol, who starred in the lead role of the original film, will be reprising his role in the sequel. The actor took to Twitter to make the announcement, saying “Hindustan Zindabaad Hai….Zindabaad Tha.. .aur Zindabaad Rahega! This Independence Day, we bring to you the biggest sequel in Indian cinema after two decades. #Gadar2 releasing on 11th August 2023.”

Fans of the original film have been eagerly awaiting the sequel, and many took to social media to express their excitement upon hearing the news. The release date of August 11, 2023, holds special significance as it is India’s Independence Day.

It will be interesting to see how the sequel continues the story of the first film and what new elements it will bring to the table. With Sunny Deol back in the lead role, fans are sure to be in for a treat. Deol himself has remarked that collaborating with the team after 22 years was a creatively enriching experience. The sequel is directed by Anil Sharma, who also helmed the original, and is produced by Zee Studios. Other original stars Ameesha Patel and Utkarsh Sharma will also reprise their roles in the sequel. The Director, Anil Sharma said the team is thrilled to launch the first poster of Gadar 2. “Gadar – Ek Prem Katha isn’t my film but it’s a people’s film and dynamically shifted the paradigm of the Indian film industry. It went on to become a cult icon wherein people breathed Tara Singh and Sakina’s love story,” the director said in a statement. With this much expectations, it will be exciting to see how the sequel will entertain the audience.

For me and a lot of others my age, “Gadar” holds a special place in our hearts. It was one of the first movies we ever watched in the theater, and it left a lasting impression on us. We were able to see the story unfold on the big screen for the first time, and it was an experience that we’ll never forget. I think a lot of people my age can relate to this, as it was one of the first films that many of us watched in a cinema hall or “talkies” as we used to call it back then. It’s a classic film that still resonates with us today and holds a special place in our memories.
