More about Gadar 2
Directed by Anil Sharma, the film is a sequel to his 2001 blockbuster Gadar: Ek Prem Katha. It features Sunny Deol as his iconic character Tara Singh along with Ameesha Patel as Sakeena and Utkarsh Sharma as their son Charanjeet Singh.
Talking about the film, Anil Sharma told PTI in an interview, “It is not easy make a mass entertainer. It is difficult because you have to show this larger-than-life hero in a way that whatever he does seems real yet entertaining. While making a realistic movie you can talk to the person and others on whom the story is based, but to add heroism in a film is challenging.”
Referring to the popular handpump scene from Gadar, he said it is hard to create a situation which makes the hero’s actions believable. “The key is to make things convincing, which is a challenge in terms of writing and shooting,” he added.
