“Border 2 has been in the writing stage for over a year now and the team has cracked a script that stands to the expectations that people would have from a sequel to a mammoth all-time blockbuster like Border. Sunny Deol and Ayushmann Khurrana are very excited to embark on this journey by the end of this year,” a source told the portal.

The source further added, “A film of this canvas requires massive pre-production and the idea is to get some of the top talents from across the globe on board Border 2. All the stakeholders are well versed in the fact that Border is not just a film but an emotion and will be going all out to deliver an honest film to the audiences. It’s going to be the Biggest War Film of India.”

Despite the absence of an official announcement, Border 2 has already generated significant buzz among audiences. The sequel’s release date, January 23, 2026, holds additional significance as it coincides with the 29th anniversary of the original Border, released on June 13, 1997.
