Gadar turns 20: director says intellectuals did not understand iconic hand pump scene

Jun 15, 2021 13:38 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Director Anil Sharma walked down the memory lane as his 2001 hit film 'Gadar Ek Prem Katha' turns 20 on Tuesday.

Speaking about the film's iconic sequence in which Sunny Deol uprooted a hand pump, the filmmaker said that intellectuals failed to understand the emotions behind the scene and felt it was 'too far-fetched'. He said the scene represented an outburst of emotion and that it was symbolic. 

The filmmaker also said that the India-Pakistan sentiment may have been an important part, but not the only factor that contributed to the success of the film. 

The filmmaker also revealed that while making the film he knew that it would become India's Titanic and it did become one.
