“People of India and Pakistan don’t want to fight each other,” said Sunny Deol at the trailer launch of Gadar 2!
Sunny Deol will soon be seen in Gadar 2, reprising his role as Tara Singh from his 2001 blockbuster hit Gadar: Ek Prem Katha.
Actor turned politician while talking to the press at the trailer launch event of his upcoming film Gadar 2 on Wednesday night, blamed the “political game” for hatred between India and Pakistan, saying the people of the two countries have “equal love” for each other.
The actor who is the BJP MP from Gurdaspur, said the people of the two nations do not want to fight each other.
“It is all not about what to give and what to take, it is about humanity. There shouldn’t be any fights. There is equal love on both sides. Yeh siyasi khel hota hai jo sab nafratein paida karta hai. (It is the political game that gives birth to hatred), and you will see the same in this film as well.
“Janta nahi koi chahti ki ek dusre ke sath hum jhagda kare. (People don’t want us to fight with each other). After all, we are from the same land,” Deol, told reporters.
Deol said he is grateful to the fans and audience for showering love on Gadar when it was released 22 years ago.
He also added that he was initially skeptical about doing a follow-up on the original movie.
“When Gadar was released, we didn’t know how it would do (at the box office). We made it with all heart and honesty. The people made it big. We hope the same happens with Gadar 2,” he said, adding, “I was afraid to touch a complete film like Gadar again, but when Sharma ji narrated the script, so then (changed my mind).”
“There are some moments, some characters that touch people’s hearts. It is not me, but the character that works. I believe Tara Singh is a character that worked well. It is his simplicity and love for family that touched people.”
Anil Sharma, who also helmed the original, has directed Gadar 2 which is produced by Zee Studios.
The film also stars Ameesha Patel and Utkarsh Sharma and is set to release on August 11.
