The Indian government’s fact check unit on Sunday dismissed claims made in media reports that a special screening of the Bollywood film Gadar 2 is being organised at the Rashtrapati Bhavan at the request of President Droupadi Murmu. The clarification termed the film’s screening as a regular affair that takes place at the Rashtrapati Bhavan and further added that Murmu is not attending the programme.

Sharing a screenshot of one such media report, it informed, “President is not attending the screening.”

Bridge 2

Gadar 2 is the sequel to its 2001 blockbuster film Gadar: Ek Prem Katha. The film starring Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel has been successful so far at the box office. The film showcased the protagonists Tara Singh and Sakeena’s legacy. It is set amidst the tumultuous Crush India Movement of 1971 with Tara Singh going all the way to Pakistan to save his son, Charan Jeet Singh (played by Utkrash Sharma) from the Pakistani Army.

Gadar: Ek Prem Katha

In 2001, Anil Sharma directed the romantic-action drama Gadar: Ek Prem Katha set during the Partition of India. It created history at the box office back then as well. The flick starred the late Amrish Puri in a pivotal role. The film mainly revolved around Tara Singh (portrayed by Sunny), a Sikh truck driver from Amritsar, who falls in love with Sakina (portrayed by Ameesha), a Muslim girl hailing from a political family in Lahore, Pakistan.
