Fans of the blockbuster Gadar franchise have a reason to rejoice as the third installment of the series has been confirmed by director Anil Sharma. The film will see Sunny Deol reprise his role as Tara Singh, the fearless Sikh truck driver who falls in love with a Muslim girl, Sakina, played by Ameesha Patel.
Gadar 2 Has Leap Of Two Decades From Part One Of Gadar
The first film, Gadar: Ek Prem Katha, released in 2001, was set during the Partition of India and Pakistan in 1947. It showed how Tara Singh rescued Sakina from a mob and married her, despite the opposition from their families and communities. The film was a huge success, breaking several box office records and becoming one of the highest-grossing Indian films of all time.
The second film, Gadar 2: Hindustan Zindabad, released in 2023, was set in 1971, during the Indo-Pak war. It showed how Tara Singh and Sakina faced new challenges and threats from the Pakistani army and intelligence, who wanted to capture Sakina and use her as a bargaining chip. The film also introduced their son, Jeet, played by Utkarsh Sharma, who helped his father in his mission. The film was also a massive hit, earning rave reviews and accolades from the critics and the audience.
Gadar 3 To Be Set In 1970’s
Now, the third film, Gadar 3, will be set in 1972, right after the events of Gadar 2. A source told Bollywood Hungama, “Gadar: Ek Prem Katha (2001) was set between 1947 and 1954. Gadar 2, meanwhile, is about the happenings in 1971. Many wondered if Gadar 3 would be set 2 decades ahead. Some even speculated that Gadar 3 will be about the India-Pakistan conflict in 1999.”
The source continued, “However, Gadar 3 will be set immediately after the events of Gadar 2. Or at the most, it’ll be set a few years after the incidents in the sequel. But there won’t be a huge jump in the timeline. The makers were clear about this aspect as it would not look logical for Tara Singh to remain young for so many years. Hence, there was no question that Gadar 3 would be set in the 1980s or 1999.”
The source also said, “Apart from Tara Singh, Sakina (Ameesha Patel) and Jeete (Utkarsh Sharma), too, will be a part of the third part. They, too, more or less, will play the same age as they did in Gadar 2.”
Another source told us, “The team of Gadar had four ideas for the third instalment. They were not in a hurry and took their team to go through them. Finally, one of the ideas was locked as it had the potential, as per the team. Like the first two parts, Gadar 3 is also expected to be rich in emotions, music, action and of course, patriotism.”
Gadar 3 is expected to go on floors in 2025, and will be produced by Zee Studios.
