Sunny Deol Addresses Controversy Surrounding Gadar 2’s Alleged Anti-Pakistan Sentiment

Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel’s Gadar 2 has been a huge success at the box office, but it has also been criticized for allegedly perpetuating anti-Pakistan and anti-Muslim sentiment. The film, which is a sequel to the 2001 blockbuster Gadar: Ek Prem Katha, tells the story of Tara Singh (Sunny Deol), a Sikh truck driver who falls in love with Sakina (Ameesha Patel), a Muslim woman. The film is set against the backdrop of the 1971 Indo-Pakistani War, and it depicts Tara Singh as a patriotic hero who fights for the freedom of India from Pakistan.

Some viewers have criticized the film for its portrayal of Pakistan and Muslims. They argue that the film stereotypes Pakistanis as villains and Muslims as terrorists. They also argue that the film’s patriotic message is divisive and could incite violence against Pakistanis and Muslims. Sunny Deol has defended the film, saying that it is not anti-Pakistan or anti-Muslim. He has said that the film is about love and patriotism, and that it does not promote violence.

Sunny Deol, in an interview with BBC Asian Network, was asked about the criticism that Gadar 2 is anti-Pakistani. The actor said that both India and Pakistan have had “hatred among one another” since the partition. He said that he believes people in both countries should “let it all go” and that they are all “normal humans”. Deol added that a story needs to have a villain and a hero. He said that the villain in Gadar 2 is a Pakistani character, but that this does not mean that the film is anti-Pakistani.

Deol’s comments have been met with mixed reactions. Some people have agreed with him, while others have said that he is not doing enough to address the concerns of those who have criticized the film. The controversy surrounding Gadar 2 is a reminder of the sensitivity of the issue of religious and national identity in India and Pakistan. It is also a reminder of the power of cinema to shape public opinion.
