Sunny Deol’s Gadar 2 and Akshay Kumar’s OMG 2, the two big upcoming movies, are scheduled to hit theatres together on August 11. This is going to result in a huge clash at the box office. These two films are sequels to previously popular movies. Sunny Deol addressed the clash between the two movies in a recent conversation. He noted that even in 2001, Gadar and Aamir Khan’s Lagaan had arrived simultaneously.
Times of India has recently questioned Actor Sunny Deol about how he felt about the box office clash. Sunny recalled how Gadar and Lagaan clashed in 2001 and how such films shouldn’t be compared. Sunny stated, “Gadar did 100 crore plus, while Lagaan did much lesser. I don’t understand why people compare – from the business or likeability point. Gadar didn’t have the perception; people thought it was this masala film, yeh purani type ki picture hai, purane type ke gaane hai.”
Sunny added, “On the other hand, people thought Lagaan was classic, etc. The so-called people who talk about films had run down Gadar entirely. It became a people’s film, and they loved it. At award shows, I remember that they made a spoof of Gadar, but we weren’t bothered by it. It has also happened with some of my other films, like Ghayal and Dil, which clashed.”
He even said, “There is no comparison, but people like to do it. I am trying to say that jo film zyada acchi hoti hai phir bhi aap usko doosre films ke barabari mein le aatey ho. Jis cheez ki barabari nahin hai, mat karo.”
Gadar 2 is the sequel of one of Hindi cinema’s biggest hits, Gadar: Ek Prem Katha. Sunny Deol, Ameesha Patel, and Utkarsh Sharma will reprise their roles from the original in this historical action movie, written, directed, and produced by Anil Sharma.
