This Guru Nanak Jayanti just got more special, when the makers and the family decided to announce it’s sequel with the blessings of Guru Nanak Ji. Remember how the terrific Deol trio of the legendary superstar Dharmendra and his two sons Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol created magic on screen with Apne?
Now, 14 years later, the team is up for an encore. Joining the terrific trio this time will be Sunny’s elder son Karan Deol, and that makes this project even more interesting! Anil Sharma and Deepak Mukut has got a casting coup in place and Anil Sharma will be the only director in Bollywood to have worked with the three generations of the Deols.
