Sunny Deol reveals much underrated Gadar 2: ‘It’s old cinema, even the director is. Who’s going to watch it?’

Sunny Deol’s 2023 film Gadar 2 turned out to be a huge hit at the box office. The film broke all box office records and received wide appreciation from fans and critics. However, Sunny recently revealed that many rejected the film when it was announced.

Sunny Deol appeared on The Great Indian Kapil Show with his brother and actor Bobby Deol. The brothers opened up about the struggles and challenges their family faced in their efforts to make a strong comeback to films after years.

Openly saying that they would not get substantial roles from the industry, Sunny said, “We could not get films from the industry that generated enough capital. I remember when I did Gadar 2, people said, ‘It’s old cinema; even the director is old. Who’s going to watch it?’ But you have proven that you want to watch it.” The veteran actor talked about how many people had underestimated Gadar 2.

The brothers also looked back on 2023 and expressed their gratitude for the overwhelming love and support they received from the public. They said, “Dad has been in the film industry since the 1960s. Since then we have been in the spotlight and seen many things, each arriving and departing in its own time. But the way things are happening this time and the kind of love we are receiving from the audience, people have always loved us. Dad gets so much love, and that’s why me, Bobby and all of us get so much love. But we couldn’t understand why things weren’t falling into place. After my daughter-in-law came, Gadar 2 was released, and before that, Papa’s Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani was released. When Gadar 2 came out, I couldn’t understand what was happening because I was laughing and crying from inside. It was incredible. From where did God reveal himself? Afterwards, Animal was released. All records were broken. All this is the result of your love.”

Meanwhile, on the work front, Sunny Deol will soon be seen in Lahore 1947 with Preity Zinta. The makers have started shooting for the film.
