Anil Sharma directed Gadar 2 has broken many records at the box-office and whole Bollywood is celebrating the success of Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel starrer movie. However, Naseeruddin Shah is not happy with the success of Gadar 2 and in a recent interview, he called the film as regressive and jingoistic.
Now the director of Gadar 2, Anil Sharma has reacted to this matter and this is what he said in a media interaction, “I read that quote by Naseer Sahab. I was surprised after reading it. Naseer Saheb knows me well and he also knows which ideology I belong to. I am surprised that he is saying such things about ‘Gadar 2’.”
He further added, “I would like to say that Gadar 2 is not against any community. Neither is it against any country. Gadar in itself is a film which is full of patriotism. It is part of a sequel. It is a proper masala film. Which people have been watching for years. So I would like to tell Naseer Sahab that once he watches Gadar 2, he will definitely change his statement. I still feel that he cannot say such things. I have been a fan of his acting. If he has said so, then I would request him to watch the film once. I have always made cinema with the aim of masala. I have never had any political propaganda in this. Naseer Saheb himself is aware of this.”
As far as the collections of Gadar 2 which is sequel of 2001 released Gadar: Ek Prem Katha, is concerned, it has minted around Rs. 515 crore till now.
