Gadar 2, starring Sunny Deol, created history and broke numerous box office records. It also restored his star power on the big screen as the audience loved every bit of him on the big screens. The actor has been in the news since the film's box office success with speculations that he will be appearing in both the Border sequel as well as Gadar 3. The actor eventually confirmed this when several internet rumors regarding the film's sequel started to circulate.
In an interview with Hindustan Times, when he was asked about Border 2 and Gadar 3, he found it funny and said, “It has been there ever since Gadar released, ‘yeh part 2 kar raha hoon, voh part 12 kar raha hoon’, arre kitni part 2 kar raha hoon! Har cheez ke rumours chale jaa rahe hain. I will announce it myself. People like to speculate."
Although Sunny might not be starring in Border 2, he is for sure working on Lahore 1947 with filmmaker Rajkumar Santoshi. Sunny and Rajkumar have previously worked together on movies like Damini and Ghayal. Aamir Khan is producing the movie, which doubles the excitement around the film.
Following Gadar 2's extraordinary popularity, many people are speculating about Deol's upcoming project.

He did, however, touch briefly on his future movie with Rajkumar Santoshi, emphasizing the excitement and their successful collaboration.
Speaking about the project, Sunny stated that this film is happening because Gadar 2 has been successful. He said that for the last 15–17 years, they have been with this film, but nothing was fixed. "Gadar has opened a lot of doors for all of us. Raj is very talented, he has got a lot of great subjects. People have seen him and me doing three films together, all different genres, and all masterpieces,” he added.
