Sunny Deol reprises his role of Tara Singh, but was initially hesitant about revisiting the role, believing that films like Gadar: Ek Prem Katha can be made only once in history. He states, “We had made Gadar but the audience made it a Blockbuster. Initially, I was a bit apprehensive about whether we would do justice and continue the legacy of the first part.” The film’s director Anil Sharma revealed how he convinced Deol to return, stating, “When I narrated gadar 2, Sunny was a little hesitant because he felt Gadar was a blockbuster and didn’t want to meddle with it. But I requested him that the entire nation has been requesting a sequel and we should respect their emotions. After many calls, he finally agreed to hear the story. When we sat down for narration and finished it, he had tears in his eyes. That’s how the journey of gadar 2 started.
Ameesha Patel and Utkarsh Sharma also reprise their roles of Sakeena and Charanjeet “Jeete” Singh from the first film. Simrat Kaur was also cast in the film. Manish Wadhwa was offered the role of a Pakistani army general in the film. Rohit Choudhary was also cast in the role of a Pakistani army general in the film. Luv Sinha and Gaurav Chopra have also been cast in important roles. The shoot of the film was wrapped up by May 2023.
The late Amrish Puri’s face was used as Ashraf Ali, Sakeena’s father from the first film. Puri passed away in 2005 and used his role through archive footage from Gadar: Ek Prem Katha and computer-generated imagery.
