About 1997 film Border

Border (1997) is an epic war film written, produced and directed by JP Dutta. Set during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971, the film is based on the events of the Battle of Longewala (1971). It stars Sunny Deol, Suniel Shetty, Jackie Shroff, Akshaye Khanna, Sudesh Berry, Puneet Issar, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Tabu, Raakhee, Pooja Bhatt and Sharbani Mukherjee among others.

Last year, speaking on The Ranveer Show, Sunny had said, “Sunne toh mujhe bhi aaya hai” (I've also heard that they're making Border 2) (laughs). Ye hum bahut pehle karne wale the… 2015 mein. Par phir meri picture nahi chali, toh log ghabra ke nahi banana chah rahe. Ab sab bol rahe hain humey karni hai. (We were meant to start it a lot earlier, in 2015. But then my film flopped, so people were scared to make it then. Now, everyone wants to make it)."
