Last year, speaking on The Ranveer Show, Sunny had said, “Sunne toh mujhe bhi aaya hain(I’ve also heard that they’re making Border 2) (laughs). Ye hum bahut pehle karne wale the… 2015 mein. Par phir meri picture nahi chali, toh log ghabra ke nahi banana chah rahe. Ab sab bol rahe hain humey karni hai. (We were meant to start it a lot earlier, in 2015. But then my film flopped, so people were scared to make it then. Now, everyone wants to make it).”

“Border” (1997) stands as an epic war drama crafted by JP Dutta, who took on the roles of writer, producer, and director. Set against the backdrop of the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971, the film chronicles the pivotal events of the Battle of Longewala. Its ensemble cast features renowned actors such as Sunny Deol, Suniel Shetty, Jackie Shroff, Akshaye Khanna, Sudesh Berry, Puneet Issar, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Tabu, Raakhee, Pooja Bhatt, and Sharbani Mukherjee, among others.
