Speaking of Ameesha Patel, the lady who played the svelte Sakina in the blockbuster film, here is a piece of trivia that will definitely shock you and surprise you. The trivia (read ‘golden trivia’) is that, Ameesha Patel was not the first choice for the role of Sakina.
Actually, the makers had finalised Kajol to play the leading lady in the film, as per reports. Meanwhile, there were other reports which stated that, even Neelam was being considered for the role of Sakina. But, when the film’s director Anil Sharma was asked once about Kajol and Neelam being the original choices for the film, he reportedly denied it outright by terming them as ‘outright lie’. At the same time, he had also spoken about having approached many big actresses, but, he had specifically mentioned that Neelam was not one of them.
As for the film, ‘Gadar: Ek Prem Katha’, the film also had the towering presence of the late Amrish Puri, whose baritone voice still resonates in our ears. In a media statement, the late Amrish Puri’s grandson Vardhan Puri spoke about the re-release of the film, stating, “It’s an absolute joyous moment to know that Gadar is re-releasing in theatres after 22 glorious years. It’s going to be something larger than life. Anil Sharma sir has re-mastered and reimagined the film in 4K and Dolby Atmos sound effect. That’s phenomenal. I cannot wait to watch the film in its renewed version with my family. It’s going to be overwhelming.”.
