In the second episode of Karan Johar’s talk show Koffee With Karan Season 8, actor Sunny Deol opened up about his upcoming collaboration with Aamir Khan in Lahore, 1947. Lahore, 1947 will be bankrolled by Aamir Khan Productions.
Talking about the same, Sunny Deol revealed that Aamir Khan offered the film during his success party of Gadar 2. He said, “When Aamir Khan came to the success party of Gadar 2, he came to me and said that he wanted to meet me.”
“I surprisingly asked myself what it was all about, and the next day we met, we discussed some ideas and possibilities for cooperation, and after the conclusion, we came to this project, and that’s how it happened,” he adds.
The film will bring together Sunny Deol, director Rajkumar Santoshi, and Aamir Khan for the first time. The first such clash at the ticket window was in 1990 when Aamir Khan’s Dil and Sunny Deol’s Ghayal were released on the same day.
Then, in 1996, it was Raja Hindustani vs. Ghatak, followed by the most epic Box Office clash of Indian cinema in 2001, when Lagaan was released on the same day as Gadar. Now, for the very first time, the duo has come together and joined hands on a project.
