Bollywood actors Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel began shooting for the sequel to the 2001 hit Gadar: Ek Prem Katha, on Wednesday.

According to reports, the actors will reprise their roles as Tara Singh and Sakeena from the first film.

Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to share a few stills from the movie Gadar 2, directed by Anil Sharma. “SUNNY DEOL, ANIL SHARMA, ZEE: 'GADAR 2' STARTS TODAY... #Gadar2, the sequel to #Gadar, starring #SunnyDeol, #AmeeshaPatel and #UtkarshSharma - commences shoot today... Directed by #AnilSharma... Produced by #ZeeStudios and Anil Sharma Productions,” he wrote.

Actor-politician Deol, in an Instagram post, wrote "We started filming of Gadar 2. Will post Tara Singh soon.”

“GADAR 2 muhurat shot, the General was kind enough to grace the occasion @surrender .singh1974@rohit_jaykay," Patel wrote in Instagram.

The original movie had opened to a thunderous response when it released on June 15, 2001.

Earlier, in May, PTI had reported that the sequel will focus on Singh, Sakeena and their son Jeet. "The story will move ahead with India-Pakistan angle, 'Gadar' is incomplete without it," a source close to the film's production had told the news agency.
