Soon, a user commented, “Congrats Akki sir but you have literally denied Gadar 2’s many records by splitting screens and making use of overflows.Still congrats.” This comment was “mistakenly retweeted” on Anil Sharma’s official account alongside two folded hand emojis. Soon after Anil issued a clarification and said, “I meant to retweet this, but mistakenly clicked the comment’s retweet button. Always love and regards for @akshaykumar… theIndustry has won.. congratulations all #OhMyGadar2.”
At a recent press conference, Anil Sharma spoke about his magnum opus and said, “Since many years, we were flooded with the demand for ‘Gadar 2’. But we were not getting the right story. I used to tell Shakti ji (writer Shaktimaan), ‘Koi idea de do’. Then during Navratri, Shakti ji came to my house and narrated an idea for Gadar 2. Unhone kaha, ‘Prasad main deta hoon aapko!’ I heard the story and the emotion worked for me big time. Gadar’s first part was actually Ramayan. Ram Sita ko Lanka se lene jaate hai. Then, I remarked, ‘Hamari film Ramayan hai. Flop nahin ho sakti'”.
