Sunny Deol embarked on a spiritual sojourn to the revered Golden Temple in Amritsar on Saturday, earnestly seeking divine blessings as he prepares for the much-anticipated release of his upcoming cinematic venture, Gadar 2. Clad in a resplendent yellow kurta pyjama and adorned with an olive green turban, the actor immersed himself in heartfelt prayers within the sacred premises of the temple. Amidst his devotions, he graciously paused to pose for photographs alongside his ardent fans, who thronged the site to catch a glimpse of the beloved star.
As a distinguished member of the Lok Sabha representing Punjab`s Gurdaspur constituency, Sunny Deol`s visit holds particular significance, reflecting his deep-rooted connection to the region. Gadar 2, which he is fervently promoting alongside his co-star Ameesha Patel, stands as a testament to his dedication. However, Ameesha Patel was notably absent by his side during this visit.
Gadar 2, initially slated to contend with OMG 2 at the box office, encountered a shift in its release plans. Akshay Kumar, the leading force behind OMG 2, opted to defer the film`s release to a later date, thus averting the direct clash.
Prior to his visit to the Golden Temple, Sunny Deol ventured to the Tanot Mata temple in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan, earlier in the week. Accompanied by vigilant BSF officials entrusted with the temple`s safeguarding, the journey covered a distance of 120 kilometers from Jaisalmer. Notably, this temple had borne the brunt of intense artillery fire from Pakistan during the conflicts of 1965 and 1971. Sunny Deol`s transportation to the temple was facilitated by a helicopter, underscoring the reverence he holds for these hallowed grounds.
Within the cinematic realm, Gadar 2 introduces Utkarsh Sharma in a novel light, portraying the character as an adult, a significant progression from his role as the young offspring of Tara Singh and Sakeena in the inaugural Gadar installment titled “Gadar: Ek Prem Katha.” Notably, the original 2001 film enjoyed a re-release in theaters on June 9, reigniting fond memories among audiences.
Amid mounting anticipation, the trailer for Gadar 2 was unveiled recently, eliciting widespread excitement. Sharing this pivotal moment on his Instagram, Sunny Deol wrote, “Once again, for our family and our nation, Tara Singh will resurge like a storm! On the momentous occasion of Kargil Vijay Diwas, presenting the #Gadar2Trailer. The trailer is now live! Brace yourselves for #Gadar2, set to grace the silver screens ahead of Independence Day, from August 11th onward.” The fervor surrounding Gadar 2`s impending release and the enduring enthusiasm of Sunny Deol`s fanbase promise an engaging cinematic journey.
