The Gadar 2 motion poster is brief but a dramatic one, featuring fire burning through cracks on the soil, hinting at how intense the sequel is going to be.

Anil Sharma, who helmed the 2001 movie, is returning as the director of the sequel as well. Gadar 2 also stars Anil Sharma's son Utkarsh Sharma, who featured as a child artist in Gadar. Gadar, which eventually became a blockbuster, was the story of a Sikh truck driver named Tara Singh, played by Sunny Deol, who fell in love with a Muslim girl Sakina, portrayed by Ameesha Patel. Tara and Sakina's love story was set against the Hindu-Muslim riots during the Partition era.
Earlier this year, as Gadar clocked 20 years, director Anil Sharma said in a statement, reported PTI: "Tara could only be played by Sunny. I needed someone extremely powerful, extremely innocent. There''s no one in the industry apart from him to do this. I had him in mind while conceptualizing the film. I knew Sunny would be iconic in the film."
