What Ameesha Patel Said About Repeating Her Character Of Sakeena In Gadar 2 And Her Decision To Play Mother In Initial Days Of Her Career

This Sunday, Sony Entertainment Television’s most loved comedy show, The Kapil Sharma Show, promises to deliver a ‘dhamakedar’ episode! Filled with non-stop laughter, comedy and rib-tickling gags, the show will welcome Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel, who will promote their upcoming film, Gadar 2.

Making it an unforgettable evening, host Kapil Sharma along with his atrangi parivaar will entertain everyone with their amusing antics, leaving the special guests laughing out loud.

The eternal love story of Gadar: Ek Prem Katha saw Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel bring alive an iconic on-screen couple of Tara Singh and Sakeena. The duo was loved by everyone, especially the character of Sakeena, who left a mark on the audience’s hearts.

'I feel a deep connection with Sakeena'

Talking about repeating this role, Ameesha Patel shares, “The character of Sakeena in Gadar has left such a profound imprint on my mind that even after 23 years, I didn't require any preparation to step into her shoes again for Gadar 2. Sakeena runs through my veins, and I feel a deep connection with her.”
Ameesha Patel says she believes Gadar is one of those timeless films that can be watched repeatedly. It has become a part of the collective consciousness of India. So, revisiting the film wasn't necessary for me because Sakeena's essence is ingrained within me, the actress said. 


‘Many had advised me against doing Gadar’

Further talking about how many people, including ace film-maker Rakesh Roshan, questioned her decision to play a mother during the initial days of her career, Ameesha adds, “When Rakesh Roshan Sir questioned my decision to do Gadar, many advised me against it, claiming I was too young for a mother's role. But, as I've always believed, it's all about the character.”


'Finding joy in portraying diverse roles is essential'

Ameesha said embracing the challenges and finding joy in portraying diverse roles is essential. However, an amusing incident occurred during the shooting of another film, while Sunny ji was working on a separate project, and I was shooting 'Humraz' with his brother Bobby. We were in Jaipur, shooting the ending of the film. In one particular scene, I had to hug Bobby. Suddenly, people on the fort began shouting, 'Hey, leave her! She is your brother's responsibility. Tara Singh (Sunny Deol) brought her back from Pakistan.”
