Sunny Deol REACTS to Gadar 2 clashing with Oh My God 2; says, “There is no comparison”

en Bollywood News Sunny Deol REACTS to Gadar 2 clashing with Oh My God 2; says, “There is no comparison”

Gadar 2 and OMG 2 will release on the same day, which is August 11. 

Sunny Deol, who will be seen in the sequel to his 2001 blockbuster Gadar: Ek Prem Katha, has said that he is not fazed by the fact that his film will be clashing with the Akshay Kumar starrer Oh My God 2 (OMG 2) at the box office.

In an interview with ETimes, Deol said, "I have never felt unnerved by box-office numbers as I believe that there is so much to do. There are many ways of portraying stories, but every Friday, we change our vision, and we say that, ‘Yeh nahin chal raha hai, toh aisa karo’. But this has been happening forever; it’s not new. Yeh jo hum uspe baith ke thesis karne lagte hai, we don’t need to. We need to believe in our stories and tell them to our audience."

Gadar: Ek Prem Katha was a huge box office success, grossing over Rs 100 crore. It clashed with Aamir Khan's Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India, and Deol said that he doesn't understand why people compare films.

"Gadar did Rs 100 crore plus (at the box office), while Lagaan did much less. I don’t understand why people compare – whether it’s from the business or likeability point. Gadar didn’t have the perception, people thought it is this masala film, yeh purani type ki picture hai, purane type ke gaane hai (People thought Gadar is an old sort of film with old songs)."

"On the other hand, people thought Lagaan was classic, etc. The so-called people who talk about films had run down Gadar completely. It went on to become a people’s film, and they loved it. At award shows, I remember that they made a spoof of Gadar, but we weren’t bothered by it. It has happened with some of my other films too, like Ghayal and Dil, which clashed. There is no comparison, but people like to do it."

Gadar 2 is directed by Anil Sharma and also stars Ameesha Patel. It is set to release on August 11, 2023. Meanwhile, OMG 2 is directed by Umesh Shukla and stars Akshay Kumar, Pankaj Tripathi, Yami Gautam, and Arun Govil. It is set to release on the same day.
