The sequel to Bollywood blockbuster Gadar: Ek Prem Katha will be released after two decades. The official teaser for the next film, starring Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel, has already been released. Surprisingly, the sequel, titled Gadar 2, will pick up where the first film left off 22 years ago.
Deol will reprise his role as Tara Singh in the upcoming action film. The film takes place in 1971, at the height of the Indo-Pakistan conflict.
The narrator claims in the teaser that Tara [Deol] is Pakistan’s son-in-law and deserves to be treated politely or his rage will force him to take the city of Lahore in dowry.
The chaos pans to many Pakistani men marching down the street with “crush India” signs before Singh makes a spectacular entrance and finishes off everyone in his path. Background music from Jubin Nautiyal’s reprised rendition of Ghar Aaja Pardesi sets the tone for the scene.
According to media reports, Deol discussed his latest offering, saying, “Gadar 2 carries forward the legacy of its iconic first part. It’s a blessing to be able to bring back one of India’s most loved family films. At its heart the film would always be an inspiring epic story of love, courage and patriotism. Hope the world welcomes Tara and Sakina again with open arms.”
Anil Sharma directed Gadar 2 and Zed Studios produced it. The film is set to hit theatres on August 11, this year.
