Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel’s Gadar Ek Prem Katha is one of the most loved films of all time. Now on June 15, an official said that the Sunny Deol-starring 2001 smash Gadar: Ek Prem Katha would be re-released worldwide. The much-anticipated sequel Gadar 2: The Katha Continues, which will be released on August 11, will be coming two months after the re-release of the partition drama.
Anil Sharma, who also directed the first film, is in charge of this one, which was produced by Zee Studios.
According to a representative of the production firm, the choice to release the first movie on the same day as its 2001 release was chosen to create buzz for Gadar 2. “As a lead up to part two of Gadar, Zee Studios plan to re-release part one in digitally restored format like how Avatar was re-released. The movie will release on the same date, which is June 15,” an official from Zee Studios told PTI.
Director Anil Sharma said he is delighted to re-release Gadar in theatres again. “I am happy people are interested in (watching) Gadar. Just like how Avatar and Baahubali were re-released, we too will do that with Gadar. We are in the process of planning things for the re-release of the movie,” Sharma told PTI.
Gadar: Ek Prem Katha centered on the love story of Sakina (Ameesha Patel), a Pakistani Muslim girl, and Tara Singh (Sunny Deol), a Sikh. Both Deol and Patel will return in the follow-up to play the same parts.
One of the biggest box office clashes of the period occurred when Gadar and the Aamir Khan-starring film Lagaan were both released on the same day. But the movie had a spectacular box office success.
