Sunny Deol will next start working on Lahore 1947, produced by Aamir Khan Productions. The Partition drama will be directed by Rajkumar Santoshi. "Aamir was there at the (Gadar success) party too and he said, 'I want to meet you tomorrow'. Then we got down to discussing a film (Lahore, 1947). It was a really emotional and beautiful moment. God has been great," he said. While Sunny and Aamir haven't co-starred in a film yet, they have worked with Santoshi in separate projects.

"We will be starting it (shoot) very shortly. We are trying to put up a set and then we will take it off. That's a film that Raj and I were going everywhere to do but it was not happening. This is what happens when something works (Gadar 2) then the doors open. That's the reality of life, we can't change that," he added.
