A still from the film
Many films on patriotism have come and gone, but JP Dutta’s war-drama ‘Border’, is inarguably the one film to have stayed with the audience. Twenty years ago on June 13, the movie took the nation by storm, and the lead actors — Sunny Deol, Suniel Shetty, Jackie Shroff and Akshaye Khanna — touched a new level of stardom.
With the film’s 20th anniversary round the corner, the makers are planning a big bash with the star cast. The filmmaker’s daughter, Nidhi Dutta says, “Border has been a special film in my father’s career. People still remember the dialogues. We felt that the film needs to be revisited and celebrated again. We are planning a reunion of the entire cast and crew on June 11.”
Revealing details of the party, she adds, “The venue is yet to be finalised, but we will showcase unseen footage and behind-the-scenes videos. Unseen images will also be on display. We even plan to put together a coffee table book to be presented as memento to the cast.”
Suniel, who will attend the reunion, says, “The film gave me a chance to wear Indian army fatigues. I still get goosebumps when I think of the film. It will be amazing to meet everyone again.”
