Ready with his new release titled ‘Singh Sahab The Great’, director Anil Sharma says he isn’t even thinking about directing the sequel to one of Indian Cinema’s biggest blockbusters ‘Gadar – Ek Prem Katha’ which he directed way back in 2001.
“If I remake Gadar today, I can understand it will be very successful. But only for the sake of business I will not spoil the film because Gadar will be remembered even after 100 years for Sunny Deol and myself.” said Sharma at the launch of the first look of his upcoming film Singh Sahab The Great.
“I want my name 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 a strong enough story for it. I know the level of curiosity will be very high if I would make the sequel. 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 film” he added.
Post the record-breaking success of Gadar, Anil Sharma has directed 4 films without much success. In fact, his most successful film Apne was only an average grosser at the box office.
