Sunny Deol has confessed in a recent interview that he never expected audiences to give Gadar 2 the appreciation that they have. Reacting to the fabulous performance of the film at the box office Deol said, “I am indeed very happy. When we did the second part (of Gadar) we never knew it would be so loved by the audience. As you rightly put it, two whole generations have gone by since we did the first Gadar. And still, people are as excited as they were the first time. I am amazed and very very happy. We need some hits to keep the film industry on its feet.”
When asked how he has managed to look almost the same in Gadar 2 as he did in Gadar: Ek Prem Katha (2001) Deol said, “I don’t know! Why do people call me Paaji? I don't feel my age at all. I don’t think about how old I am. I’ve never done that. I’ve always done my work to the best of my abilities regardless of my age.”
The actor also shared that he and the Gadar 2 team are planning a multiple-city tour to interact with fans. Deol said, “The love of people everywhere has to be attended to. We are planning to visit several cities, now that they have shown their unconditional love for our film. I can’t believe people still love me so much.”
Gadar 2 was released in theatres on August 11. The film is directed by Anil Sharma.
