'Gadar 2' vs 'OMG 2': Here's What Sunny Deol Says About His Clash with Akshay Kumar-Starrer!
Get ready for an epic cinematic showdown as two Bollywood giants, Sunny Deol's Gadar 2 and Akshay Kumar's OMG 2, are all set to hit the theaters on the same day - August 11, 2023. Both movies, highly anticipated sequels to their respective successful predecessors, are generating immense excitement among fans and critics alike. However, with this head-to-head clash, comparisons are inevitable. Sunny Deol, the leading star of Gadar 2, has recently shared his thoughts on the clash, reminiscing about a similar situation when Gadar clashed with Aamir Khan's Lagaan in 2001.
Sunny Deol's Reflections on the Clash
In a recent interview, Sunny Deol, who stars alongside Ameesha Patel in Gadar 2, was candidly asked about his film's clash with Akshay Kumar's OMG 2. Recalling the past clash between Gadar and Lagaan, he expressed his bewilderment at why people tend to compare films when there is no real basis for comparison.
In conversation about the clash, Sunny Deol said, "Gadar did 100 crore plus, while Lagaan did much lesser. I don’t understand why people compare – whether it’s from the business or likeability point. Gadar didn’t have the perception, people thought it is this masala film, yeh purani type ki picture hai, purane type ke gaane hai. On the other hand, people thought Lagaan was classic, etc. The so-called people who talk about films had run down Gadar completely. It went on to become a people’s film, and they loved it. At award shows, I remember that they made a spoof of Gadar, but we weren’t bothered by it. It has happened with some of my other films too, like Ghayal and Dil, which clashed.”
Gadar actor further said, “There is no comparison, but people like to do it. What I am trying to say is that jo film zyada acchi hoti hai phir bhi aap usko doosre films ke barabari mein le aatey ho. Jis cheez ki barabari nahin hai, mat karo.”
In the meantime, 'Gadar 2' is scheduled to be released on August 11 which will clock horns with Akshay Kumar starrer 'OMG 2'. Directed by Anil Sharma, 'Gadar 2' also includes Ameesha Patel as lead actor and other significant stars.
On the other hand, Akshay Kumar's OMG 2 is directed by Amit Rai and featured Pankaj Tripathi and Yami Gautam Dhar which will be released on the same date as of 'Gadar 2'.
