Gadar: Ek Prem Katha, the iconic romantic-action film that captivated audiences when it was released in 2001, is all set to make a comeback in theatres. The makers have announced the re-release of the film ahead of the highly anticipated sequel, Gadar 2, slated for release later this year. Fans of the film can rejoice as they will have the opportunity to relive the magic on the big screen once again, starting June 9.
Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel, the lead actors of Gadar, took to Instagram on Thursday to share this exciting news with their fans and followers. They revealed that the re-released version of the film has been remastered in 4K, promising an enhanced visual experience. Additionally, the film will be presented in Dolby Atmos sound, further amplifying the immersive cinematic experience.
To build anticipation, the makers also unveiled the trailer of the remastered version on Friday. Directed by Anil Sharma, Gadar is a poignant love story set against the backdrop of the Partition of India. Sunny Deol portrays the character of Tara Singh, a Sikh truck driver from Amritsar, who falls in love with Ameesha Patel’s character, Sakina, a Muslim girl, whose family had to migrate to Lahore, Pakistan during the Partition. The film also features the late Amrish Puri in a pivotal role.
The decision to re-release Gadar comes at an opportune time, as the team is gearing up for the much-awaited sequel, Gadar 2. However, the sequel will face stiff competition at the box office, as it is scheduled to clash with Ranbir Kapoor’s Animal on August 11, 2023.
