Gadar 2 has been creating buzz ever since it was announced. Starring Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel in the lead roles. The film’s first schedule was recently shot in Himachal Pradesh. Now, the shooting of the much-anticipated movie kicked off in Lucknow on Wednesday.
However, the shoot started in a chaotic manner as the junior artists complained about not getting fees and food. They were also seen gathering at La Martiniere College creating a ruckus. In a video that is going viral, the artistes are heard saying: “We have been called here since morning but the production team is not bothered about us, not providing us basic amenities and compensation for the day. They want us to work for free.”
Soon after, the director of the movie Anil Sharma reacted to the allegations and said: “We had called around 10-15 people for a look test but god knows how hundreds of people came over. It is a confusion created by the local artiste co-ordinator. We were very specific about how many actors we wanted. When people heard about casting for the film Gadar, they all came in, I think. I can’t give a role to hundreds of people when the requirement is just for a few. Things have sorted out now.”
Last year, the makers had announced the sequel. Sharing the teaser video, Sunny wrote: “After two decades the wait is finally over! On the auspicious day of Dusshera, Presenting to you the motion poster of #Gadar2. The Katha Continues…”
