More about Border 2
Throwing light on its sequel, Pinkvilla quoted a source as saying, “The team has been discussing the probability of making a Border sequel for the last 2 to 3 years and everything has now finally fallen into place as the team is all set to make an official announcement of Border 2 in a fortnight. The team has identified a tale from the 1971 Indo-Pak war that is yet not told on the big screen and are all charged up to bring it to the spectacle.”
“Being a heavy-on action film, the team will be casting actors from the younger generation rather than bringing together the entire troop of Border. Sunny Deol will probably be the only actor from Border, who will be a part of Border 2 as well. It’s all in the early stages at the moment and more updates shall come our way once the film is officially announced very soon,” the source added.
Gadar 2 is a hit
Sunny and Gadar 2 co-star Ameesh Patel are currently riding high on the success of the film. They recently celebrated the film's success in Dubai. The film also stars Gadar 2 director Anil Sharma's son Utkarsh Sharma as Tara Singh's son Charanjeet. He had played Charanjeet in Gadar: Ek Prem Katha as a child actor.
Gadar 2 has now entered its second week and continues to churn massive numbers at the ticket counters. It has already crossed ₹ 300 crore at the domestic box office and continues to remain mostly houseful in theatres.
