J.P. Dutta, who had directed the first film, will go behind the camera for the second movie too.
"J.P. Dutta just called up and asked me to compose for 'Border 2'. In his signature style he said, 'Hi Anu, we're on.' He's also planning 'Border 3' and 'Border 4' in the future," Malik said in a statement.
Malik had worked with Dutta in "Refugee" too.
The story of "Border", which starred Sunny Deol, Akshay Khanna, Suniel Shetty, and Pooja Bhatt among others, was inspired by the Battle of Longewala and the sequel will also be based on some real incidents.
