Director Anil Sharma says his 2001 hit movie “Gadar: Ek Prem Katha” will make people remember him for a century and he will not make a sequel to the blockbuster on the silver screen only for earning money. The film starred Sunny Deol and Amisha Patel in the lead.
“If today I remake ‘Gadar’ I can understand it will be very successful. But only for the sake of business I will not spoil my ‘Gadar’ because this film will be remembered even after 100 years for Sunny Deol and myself”.
“I want to be alive even after 100 years and it can only happen because of ‘Gadar’. So I will not go for ‘Gadar 2’ until and unless I get that strong story,” Anil Sharma said here Thursday at the teaser launch of his next film “Singh Saab The Great”.
The director accepts that a sequel can make good business and “Gadar” sequel will generate curiosity among the audience, and thus generate great business.
“Second part is always a good business proposition. I know the level of curiosity will be very high if I would make ‘Gadar 2’. But ‘Gadar’ was such a big hit, probably the biggest blockbuster hit of Indian cinema.
“So much is talked about box-office numbers these days but it was the first film that crossed 100 crore rupees in 2001, in today’s times it’s a thousand crore,” said Anil Sharma
