Subhash Ghai, inspired by the blockbuster success of Sunny Deol’s “Gadar 2,” has joined the trend of creating sequels.

Ghai added, “We have a story lab, they keep working on the story, and I am heading that department. People love nostalgia, and Ballu Balram of Khalnayak may appear on the screen in a big way. I have been getting many messages after Gadar 2’s success, ‘Why don’t you make Khalnayak 2?’ So we are contemplating on it and you will hear the news very soon. It will have Sanjay and a new star, both of them together”
