Anil Sharma: Gadar 2 boasts of real action scenes and not just VFX

'Gadar 2' is making headlines since its inception. Along with the beautiful chemistry of the iconic duo Tara Singh played by Sunny Deol and Sakina played by Ameesha Patel, a heartwarming father-son bond, the film also portrays high-octane action sequences. Director Anil Sharma is glad that he opted for an authentic approach to fight scenes over VFX for Gadar 2. The film promises an array of larger-than-life action sequences that rely more on genuine stunts over VFX.

Anil Sharma explains, “I don’t consider it old-school action. It’s raw action. Look at some of Tom Cruise’s stunts in the Mission Impossible series or Nolan’s Oppenheimer, even in the US, artistes are striving to keep things real and that’s what I wanted to do.” He adds, “During the making of Gadar: Ek Prem Katha, we meticulously choreographed real-life action scenes to deliver an authentic experience that was embraced by the audience. With Gadar 2, we were committed to preserving that same level of authenticity. The film boasts of real action scenes and not just VFX. Our goal was to revisit the golden era of Indian cinema and uphold the film’s legacy.”

'Gadar: Ek Prem Katha', with a runtime of two hours and fifty minutes, holds the distinction of being the second most-watched Hindi film in India since the 1990s. The movie became a colossal success and emerged as the highest-grossing Hindi film since the 1994 blockbuster 'Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!'. Speaking about his apprehension, Sunny Deol shared at the trailer launch, "The first 'Gadar' when we made, people turned it into a Gadar (humongous). It was always scary to touch a film that was such a complete package. That's why I was scared, but when I heard the story, the old 'Gadar' was 'Gadar', and I hope the same result for this one too."

The movie also stars Utkarsh Sharma, Simrat Kaur, Manish Wadhwa, and Gaurav Chopra in pivotal roles. In 'Gadar 2', Tara Singh takes ahead the story and goes to Pakistan to find his son, Jeetey. Helmed by Director-Producer Anil Sharma, and produced by Zee Studios, the movie stars Superstar Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel in lead roles. The movie is scheduled to release in cinemas on 11th August 2023.
