“Right now, the way things are in our country and all over the world, we all must exercise utmost caution. Do only what we must. Shooting Apne 2 is not a must-do project at all. It can wait. After all, that is the advantage of working with family. Jabb chaho shuroo karam jab dil mein aaye khatam karo(start when you want end when you wish,” says Dharamji with his trademark chuckle.
The actor speaks very highly of director Anil Sharma . “He’s like my own son. Sunny (deol) has done several films with him.His most successful Gadar was with Anil only. Some of my most successful films are with Anil…Hukumat, Elan-e-Jung , Tehalka , Frishtay.. all major action films.Apne is an emotional subject and we are all looking forward to the sequel.Right now is not the right time for it.Waqt ka takaaza hai. Let’s hope and pray that this pandemic crisis will be over soon.”
Apne 2 was announced a few months back and it was slated to release in Diwali 2021. However, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and a massive spike in the cases, the director of the film, Anil Sharma decided the shoot of the same will be pushed ahead and they are also considering the 85-years-old actor’s health.
