Kapil Sharma had previously stated that he played a small part in Sunny Deol’s Gadar and although the scene he was in never made it to the final cut, Kapil has some memories of being on that set. In a recent chat with veteran actor Mukesh Khanna, the film’s action director Tinu Verma recalled how he was very annoyed with Kapil that particular day and threw him off the set.
Tinu shared that they were shooting with a huge crowd and everyone was ordered to run towards the train. As soon as he called for action, the crowd started running towards the train, but there was one boy running in the opposite direction, and that was Kapil. Tinos called the boy and asked him to follow the instructions. “Terry Wajach sent another shot of hua hai (We’re doing another take because of you),” Tinou recalls.
Tinu said that when they started rolling again, all his focus was on that boy. Once again, Kapil ran in the opposite direction. Tinu said, “Maine camera chhoda aur main uss bade ke paas bhaaga. Aur jaise hi pakda, phaaad (makes a slap gesture), ek kaan ke neeche diye aur maine bola isko bahar nikaalo. (I put the camera down and ran towards him. The moment I caught him, I slapped him.) Throw him off the set.”

He was sure that he would be lost in the sea of people and that was the only way he could stand out from the crowd. Sunny was very shocked to know that Kapil was a part of his film.
