Suniel Shetty commented with red heart emoticons, while Esha Deol reacted with heart and arm flexing emoticons. A fan wrote, “Can't wait!” A second one commented, “I'm so happy & excited because my childhood is back.”

Earlier, Sunny had shared on The Ranveer Show that he was meant to start Border 2 in 2015. However, it was shelved because his then release had not worked at the box office and the producers were scared.

Sunny was last seen in Gadar 2. Directed by Anil Sharma, Gadar 2 was a sequel to the 2001 blockbuster in which Sunny essayed the role of Tara Singh, a truck driver, while Ameesha Patel played Sakina. It became a blockbuster, crossing more than 450 crore at the Indian box office.
