ABOUT ‘DREAM GIRL 2’
‘Dream Girl 2’ narrates the story of a small-town boy Karam, portrayed by Khurrana, whose quest for a serious life in Mathura, keeps getting disrupted by a series of comic circumstances.

After the blockbuster success of ‘Gadar 2’, speculation is rife about the revival of another Sunny Deol classic, ‘Border’. Reports suggest that the team is set to make an official announcement about ‘Border 2’ soon.
Just like ‘Gadar’, ‘Gadar 2’ has turned out to be a blockbuster. The film, which released on August 11, has already collected Rs 300 crore in eight days. Now, with the super success of ‘Gadar 2’, it looks like makers are keen to revive the 1997 film, ‘Border’, and bring out ‘Border 2’.
‘BORDER 2’ ON THE CARDS?
Several reports are doing the rounds that, after the success of ‘Gadar 2’, JP Dutta is planning to bring ‘Border 2’ on screens. The film will have Sunny Deol along with an ensemble cast of young stars. Dutta, who helmed ‘Border’, will reportedly be producing the second part.
A report in Pinkvilla quoted a source saying, “The team has been discussing the probability of making a Border sequel for the last 2 to 3 years and everything has now finally fallen into place as the team is all set to make an official announcement about Border 2 in a fortnight. The team has identified a tale from the 1971 Indo-Pak war that is not yet told on the big screen and are all charged up to bring it to the spectacle.”
“Being a heavy-on action film, the team will be casting actors from the younger generation rather than bringing together the entire troop of ‘Border’. Sunny Deol will probably be the only actor from ‘Border’ who will be a part of ‘Border 2’ as well. It’s all in the early stages at the moment and more updates will come our way once the film is officially announced very soon,” the source further told the portal.
‘Border’ released in 1997 and had an ensemble cast consisting of Jackie Shroff, Sunil Shetty, Akshaye Khanna, Sudesh Berry, Pooja Bhatt, Tabu, Sharbani Mukherjee along with senior stars like Raakhee, Kulbhushan Kharbanda and Puneet Issar. It was one of the biggest blockbusters in the decade.

22 years later, ‘Gadar 2’ released on the big screen. The film, featuring Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel, hit the theatres on August 11, 2023.

A paparazzo shared the video on Instagram with a caption that read, “Tara singh with Jr Tara singh. Sunny paaji having moment with little fans as they promoting Gadar 2.
‘GADAR 2’ MOVIE REVIEW
Meanwhile, India Today’s ‘Gadar 2’s review read, “The story of ‘Gadar 2’ takes off from where the makers had left things in 2001. And that is a clever move. A sequel of a story made 22 years later would have found itself in a tough spot, if a grown-up Jeetey used a mobile phone and spoke to his parents in millennial lingo. Tara Singh (Sunny Deol) has created a home with his beloved Sakina, his love for whom increases with each passing day. Their son is a college-going lad, whose love for his father takes him places (and not in a way it is supposed to be).
Sunny Deol’s return as Tara Singh has taken the industry by surprise as the movie has recorded excellent advance booking trends. While there is joy all around the industry as a blockbuster seems to be in the offing, Karan Johar and Viacom 18 have a reason to worry. “Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani is doing very good business in the national multiplex chains, however, seeing the extraordinary response to the advance booking of Gadar 2, major multiplexes are looking to replace Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani from the prime time shows and allot it to Gadar 2 this Friday onwards.
While Dharma Productions was confident to retain 40 percent of the show count in the Independence Day week too, the multiplexes at the moment don’t have the capacity to allot anything more than 20 percent to Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani. “This has led to a war of words between Viacom 18 and the national multiplex chains. They believe the multiplexes would be unfair to them by giving away such a vast showcasing to Gadar 2, more so because their film is holding very well. Karan Johar has personally picked up the calls on the top heads of plexes and is trying to resolve the showcasing of his directorial,” the trade source told us further.
This development however has not gone down well with the Gadar 2 distribution team. “Zee Studios and Sunny Deol believe that their film has already been impacted by OMG 2. The buzz for Gadar is massive and Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani got 2 clear weeks to do what it had to. They are wanting to get most of the shows in their name, as they are confident of facing capacity issues on the weekend. Zee is on the front foot to take more showcasing and it believes that Viacom 18 has to figure out the showcasing of their two films – OMG 2 and Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, without diluting the release of a third-party film,” the trade source shared insider information.
At the moment, Viacom is not willing to sacrifice showcasing OMG 2 for Rocky Aur Rani and that leaves Karan to bargain only on better deals from plexes by letting go of some prime time shows for Gadar 2. The reason to not compromise on OMG 2 is the fact that OMG 2 is already seeing a limited release. The battle is intensifying between Rocky Rani, Gadar 2, and OMG 2. All eyes on the showcasing now.
