21 Years of Gadar: 'Gadar Ek Prem Katha' is based on this true incident, read interesting untold stories related to the movie

‘Gadar Ek Prem Katha’ is the film adaptation of a true story. The film is based on the love story of Fauji Buta Singh, who served in the British Army in Burma (now Myanmar) during World War II. He saved the life of a Muslim girl when the communal riots broke out during partition. Both fell in love and got married. Later, after the girl was identified, she was sent to Pakistan. Buta Singh went to Pakistan to bring his wife. When the girl was under pressure from the family, she refused to return to India. Buta Singh is said to have committed suicide by jumping in front of a moving train in Pakistan itself.

Sunny Deol told the story ahead of its release

Before the release of the movie “Gadar Ek Prem Katha”, I had a long meeting with Vijayata, Sunny Deol’s sister, at her house in Sainik Farms in Delhi. For a long time we talked about the movie ‘Gadar Ek Prem Katha’. Sunny said, “Your Mathura’s Anil Sharma is the director of the film.” He briefly told the story of the film. The idea for the movie ‘Gadar Ek Prem Katha’ first came to its writer Shaktimaan. It was Shaktimaan who told the love story of Buta Singh to Anil Sharma. Anil Sharma was looking for such a story at that time, which has patriotism but it is not a movie like Manoj Kumar. Due to Kargil War, hatred was spreading among the people against Pakistan in the country and in such situation, Anil Sharma had this story.

Tara Singh was about to become Govinda

This is the time when the tremendous success of “Hukumat” by Anil Sharma, produced with Dharmendra, puts Anil Sharma at the forefront of directors. After that, Anil Sharma made films like ‘Elaan-e-Jung’, ‘Farishte’, ‘Tehelka’ and ‘Police Wala Gunda’. But after ‘Farishte’, the effect of the pair of Anil Sharma and Dharmendra started to diminish. After that, Anil Sharma directed the movie ‘Maa’ with Jeetendra and ‘Maharaja’ with Govinda. Anil Sharma first told the story of the movie “Gadar Ek Prem Katha” in Govinda. Govinda also liked it very much. But, the company that put money into the movie did not find Govinda fit as per the story of this movie. Then, at Dharmendra’s request, Sunny Deol heard this story.

Sunny Deol changed the climax of the movie

Sunny Deol says, “Nitin Kenny, Anil Sharma, Kamal Mukut and Shaktimaan came to me with this movie. I liked the story and immediately said yes. But at that time I had so many films that it became very difficult to find time for this film, but somehow this film was made and turned out to be a very good film. Few people would know that the film’s writer Shaktimaan and director Anil Sharma had turned Buta Singh’s original story 180 degrees at the end of the film ‘Gadar Ek Prem Katha’ i.e. according to the script of the film, the film’s heroine Sakina had to die. had to go. But, while shooting the movie, Sunny Deol changed the climax of this movie.

the price of a pinch of vermilion

Sunny Deol says: “The directors of the film ‘Gadar Ek Prem Katha’ had filled their coffers with this film. The film turned out to be such a success that its directors themselves could not understand the reason behind it. But for me, the film’s success came with other problems. For many years, I kept receiving proposals for films in which the character of the hero was similar or close to Tara Singh. The fierce form that people saw on the screen created a different image of me. It took me a lot of work to get out of this image, but finally I managed to do it too. The most emotional scene in the film ‘Gadar Ek Prem Katha’ also comes after a long action sequence when Tara Singh rips her hand open with a sword and fills Sakina’s maang with vermilion.
