In a recent conversation with Lehren Retro, filmmaker Anil Sharma shared that lead actor Sunny Deol compromised on his fees. Sharma said, “We really made an effort to control everybody’s fees. Sunny’s fee is what it is, it’s okay, it’s just one person, but even he compromised quite a bit. These days, heroes and directors charge so much, the budgets end up ballooning up to Rs 600 crore, and sometimes the heroes charge Rs 150 crore and Rs 200 crore.”

Moreover, the director of Gadar 2 also talked about how nowadays there are bloated budgets as high as Rs. 600 crore. In fact, Sharma took the example of Adipurush, a Telugu-Hindi mythological epic which was released under the banner of Rs 600 crore budget, but failed to recover theatrically.

In the interview, Anil Sharma also denied reports which said that Gadar 2 cost around Rs 100 crore. He said that these reports are ‘vastly exaggerated’ and the actual figure is much lower. In fact, he also thanked the Indian Army and the government of Uttar Pradesh because it helped him a lot in keeping a check on the costing part.

During the government, Anil Sharma expressed his gratitude to the Indian Army and even the Uttar Pradesh government. The filmmaker said, “We decided to spend on the production. The Army supported us so much, they gave us tanks, locations, soldiers. I’m very thankful to the Army. We shot in UP, we got a lot of help from the ministry there… We used to block main roads, we blew up real bridges. Imagine. These days, a lot of state governments offer a lot of aid and subsidies to film productions. But I would request the Maharashtra government to also step up.”
