Gadar 2 has been making headlines recently, not just for its much-anticipated release but also due to the viral spread of images and videos featuring one of its actresses, Simrat Kaur. The content has been widely circulated on social media platforms such as Twitter, Reddit, and Instagram.
Simrat Kaur, who is making her major Bollywood debut with Gadar 2, has previously worked in South Indian films and online videos. Despite being a newcomer to mainstream Hindi cinema, she has already amassed a significant following of over 810,000 on Instagram. She often engages with her fans by sharing behind-the-scenes photos from her various projects.
However, the recent viral spread of her images and video clips has stirred controversy. Some internet users have been spreading rumors that these intimate scenes are from Gadar 2. This led to a backlash from viewers online, prompting co-star Ameesha Patel to step in and defend Kaur. In a tweet, Patel clarified that the controversial scenes were not from Gadar 2, thereby dispelling the rumors.
Ameesha Patel, who is also starring in Gadar 2 alongside Sunny Deol, further expressed her support for Kaur amidst the online trolling. She urged people to encourage rather than shame women, emphasizing the importance of promoting up-and-coming artists.
Born in Amritsar, Punjab, on July 16, 1997, Simrat Kaur has made a name for herself in the Punjabi music and Bollywood film industries. She will be seen in Gadar 2 co-starring with Utkarsh Sharma, son of filmmaker Anil Sharma.
Gadar 2, directed by Anil Sharma, is set to premiere in theaters on August 11. The film is a sequel to the 2001 epic Gadar: Ek Prem Katha and continues the story of characters Tara and Sakeena. The first official trailer for Gadar 2 was released last month, suggesting that the film picks up immediately after the events of its predecessor.
