The filmmaker added that he had spoken to Dharmendra as well to be part of the film. And as part of the script he wanted to have a sub-plot of a man from Kashmir falling in love with a girl from across the border. After hearing the storyline from his writer Shaktimaan, Anil Sharma felt that this narrative could be made into a separate story and decided to make ‘Gadar’, instead of his original plan

He said that he will personally apologize to everyone for not following through. However with the change in plans, Anil Sharma was left with the biggest regret in life, that of not being able to work with Dilip Kumar .
After 22 years, Anil Sharma is releasing a sequel to ‘Gadar’ and the response has been massive across the board.
