In an unexpected turn of events, actress Ameesha Patel and director Anil Sharma found themselves at loggerheads over the highly anticipated sequel to the blockbuster film Gadar: Ek Prem Katha titled Gadar 2. A source close to Ameesha has revealed that the actress was taken aback upon learning certain details about the project, leading to heated arguments and creative differences with Sharma.
It all started when Ameesha came to know that Sharma has signed an actress who has given sleazy scenes in a B grade movie, whose video she came across, in a film like Gadar 2. She is cast in the movie opposite Utkarsh Sharma, who plays Ameesha and Sunny Deol’s son.
A source close to the actress told Bollywood Hungama, “Yes, Ameesha was quite shocked since knowing her attachment for the brand Gadar and her respect for Sunny. She kept insisting to the director to do full justice to the sequel since fans are expecting a lot and when she came to know that the girl they have signed opposite Utkarsh named Simrat has done such work then that shocked her. She was shocked to know that Anil Sharma could cast such an actress opposite Utkarsh and that too in a film like Gadar 2. That’s where the differences started happening. She and Anil Sharma used to argue at times. Her creative thoughts were matching with that of Zee and Sunny but not with Anil Shrama. In fact, Zee team also has had many issues with the director in the last 16 months, but all are now forced on giving the audiences a great film and that’s all that matters.”
Recently, Ameesha had also alleged delay in payment for some technicians who had worked on Gadar 2. She had written on Twitter, “Another concern of fans has been about certain incidents regarding Anil Sharma Productions to have taken place in regards to the final schedule of Gadar 2 that took place end May in Chandigarh!! There were certain queries that many technicians like makeup artists, costume designers, and others, etc. did not receive their rightful remuneration and dues from Anil Sharma Productions!! Yes, they did not!! But @ZeeStudios_ stepped in and made sure all dues were settled as they are a very professional company.”
The highly anticipated teaser for Gadar 2 has been released. It is an upcoming action-drama film, which is directed and produced by Anil Sharma, with the story penned by Shaktimaan Talwar. Serving as a sequel to the 2001 film Gadar: Ek Prem Katha, the movie stars Sunny Deol, Ameesha Patel, and Utkarsh Sharma in the lead roles.
