The mystery was never solved."We took inspiration from that too," said Abbas. "We wrote a story of some corrupt individuals stealing arms from the military and selling them. For that, we formed a team of Dalip Tahil, Sharat Saxena, Salim Ghouse, Suresh Oberoi and Pankaj Dheer. Dheer gets framed in the matter."And just like they had read in the newspaper, the villagers inscribe 'My husband was anti-national' on Rakhee's forehead and throw her out of the village.

"We thought it was not necessary," explained the director. "Only a few people knew. There was no social media back then. I remember mobile phones had come in while we were at the final stage of the shoot."Abbas said Bobby Deol was their first choice for the lead role. They were impressed by his work in his earlier films like Barsaat (1995) and Gupt (1997). "[Producer] Ramesh Taurani suggested his name," the director said. "We were happy with the choice. At that time he had broken a leg in a horse-riding accident and was on crutches. As soon as he heard the script, he said he would like to do it."

We soon started feeling he is family."Over the years, the friendship forged between the Burmawallas and the Deols has only grown. "We are emotional and we believe in family relations. That is why their family is close to us," explained Abbas Burmawalla. With the age of sequels well and truly upon Hindi cinema, Abbas revealed that Ramesh Taurani believes Soldier 2 is a possibility. "But there has to be a script that suits the film's heritage and is also relevant today," the director said. "Plus, it should be better than the first film. Else there is no point doing it." 2b1af7f3a8
