The cast of Border was one of the most memorable aspects of the film. Sunny Deol as Major Kuldip Singh Chandpuri, Akshaye Khanna as Lt Dharamvir, and Suniel Shetty as Capt. Bhairav Singh – all played pivotal roles in the film. A Border sequel with Sunny Deol playing the lead along with a new start cast that attracts younger audiences will just add to the excitement around the movie.
4. Sunny Deol’s Trademark Style:
Another reason why a Border sequel is a must is because of Sunny Deol’s trademark style. He has a charisma that captivates the audiences.

A sequel to one of his biggest hits will surely be worth the wait and live up to the expectations of the audience

It is a movie that will not only take you on an emotional roller coaster but also take your patriotism and pride in your country to new heights.
Above all, a Border sequel would serve as a tribute to the Indian Army. The harsh realities of the conflicts that our soldiers face are often ignored or understated. Movies like Border help to convey the sacrifices made by our soldiers and instil a sense of pride in our armed forces. By continuing the tradition of movies like Border, filmmakers can help to honour the brave men and women who serve our country.
