Sunny Deol’s and Ameesha Patel’s Gadar: Ek Prem Katha clocked 20 years recently. The film, directed by Anil Sharma is one of the most popular and most profitable films of Hindi cinema. Although most of the trivia and anecdotes related to the film is already known but we bet you were not aware of this one- that ace comedian Kapil Sharma was a part of Gadar but his scene was cut? Yes, you read that right, the actor was a part of Gadar when the film was being shot in Amritsar, Punjab but his scene was cut in the final edit of the film.
According to a leading daily, Kapil’s father, who was a police officer was on duty on the sets of the film while it was being shot in Amritsar. So Kapil also reached the sets along with his father hoping to catch a glimpse of Sunny who was rumoured to be shooting. However, the actor was not on the sets and the shoot had Amrish Puri and Ameesha instead. Kapil seemed to have landed in a shot with the friend where they had to board a train.
He said that they were told that they would have to run away and board the train as soon as the action is called. Ameesha Patel tried to board the train twice, but she could not. Kapil later came to know that he did not even have to board the train. He said that he had boarded the train two or three times. But he felt that his scene would not be able to come in the crowd.
The actor further said that action director Tinu Verma stood on the jeep and talked about the scene. “When I saw an empty space, I ran. He grabbed me and gave me a sweet slur. I told him that when you spoke action, I ran. They chased me away; I ran into the crowd again. The film released, and I took my friends to the theatre to show me my scene. My scene was cut.”
