It is a film that celebrates the feeling of being an Indian and there is no better time than Independence Day. for its release. Editing is in progress and an official release date announcement will follow soon.”

While both the films are large-scale sagas that appeal to the masses, the period is big enough to accommodate both.

About Gadar 2
A sequel to Gadar: Ek Prem Katha, Gadar 2 takes a 20-year leap and depicts a situation that brings Tara Singh and Sakena back to Pakistan, but this time to protect his son Jeet (played by Utkarsh Sharma). The film was shot in multiple locations.
Earlier in an interview with Pinkvilla, Anil Sharma said, “Like Gadar, the sequel is in a set period as it is a continuation of what happens in the lives of Tara, Sakina and Jeete. The world wants to know more about Tara Singh has become folklore, it is like Superman, soft at heart but strong. Our tagline ‘The Katha Continues’ should be taken literally as the story continues much like Bahubali and Godfather.”
“A lot of people who loved Gadar are skeptical about the sequel. Their only concern is that we do justice to the legacy of the first installment. This just tells us about their love for Gadar. Sunny Sir, Shaktimaan Ji (writer), Zee and I have accepted very responsible call to make Gadar 2,” he added.
