Remember Utkarsh Sharma, the cute-little child artiste who stole everyone’s hearts with his terrific screen presence in the 2001-blockbuster Gadar Ek Prem Katha? Well, the actor is now all grown up, a 28-year-old man, who looks set for the big leap as a male lead. When it was announced that his film Gadar will have a sequel, it left everyone wondering about its possible lead actor.
For the unversed, it was confirmed that Gadar 2, after two decades, would take the story of Tara and Sakeena forward, from where it ended in the original. In Gadar, which registered the highest footfalls for a Hindi film at the time of its release, Utkarsh Sharma played Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel’s on-screen son Charanjeet. It’s now official that Utkarsh will be the leading man in Gadar 2.
Utkarsh is hopeful that he will impress the audiences yet again with his intensity in the sequel to Gadar. He believes he’s ready for the big stage and will come up with an even better performance this time for Gadar 2. The actor had turned a male lead with his 2018 release Genius and wowed critics and audiences alike. Utkarsh is confident that Gadar 2 would showcase a different dimension in him as an actor.
Helmed by Anil Sharma, Gadar 2 brings together Sunny Deol, Ameesha Patel and Utkarsh Sharma, and the film went on floors last year in October 2021 with a schedule at Palampur, Himachal Pradesh. The film is set to hit the theatres soon and trade pundits are expecting it to open big at the box office. Anil Sharma and Bhaumik Gondaliya are bankrolling the film under Zee Studios and Anil Sharma Productions.

The story of Gadar unfolds during the partition, where Tara marries Sakina. Destiny takes a turn for the worse when Sakina's father forces her to stay in Pakistan. Anil Sharma had directed the film that released on June 15, 2001.
