Actor Sunny Deol took to social media on Thursday to officially announce the sequel of the war-drama Border, 27 years after its release in 1997.

The actor shared an announcement video on Instagram with the caption, “Ek fauji apne 27 saal purane waade ko pura karne, aa raha hai phirse (A solider is coming to fulfill the promise he made 27 years ago) India's biggest war film, #Border2.”

The film will be helmed by Kesari (2019) director Anurag Singh. It was earlier reported that Ayushmann Khurrana will also be part of the film. Details regarding the remaining cast are still under wraps. The film will commence shooting by October, as per a press note.

Last year, Sunny was part of Gadar 2, another sequel of a classic, which turned out to be one of the biggest blockbusters of 2023.

Border, set during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971, was based on the famous Battle of Longewala. The sequel will also look into the 1971 war.

The original Border was an ensemble of actors like Suniel Shetty, Jackie Shroff and Akshaye Khanna, among others. It was the highest grossing film of 1997.

Border 2 will be produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, the original film’s director JP Dutta and his daughter Nidhi Dutta.
