Script, songs, picturization were all contributed in making the film ‘Gadar: Ek Prem Katha’ a hit. The innocence of the film’s actress Ameesha Patel won the hearts of the audience. Sunny Deol was honored with the Best Critics Actor’s Choice Award for ‘Gadar’. Sunny was not happy with this, so took the award but left it in the bathroom. The reason behind Sunny Deol doing this is even more surprising.

Actually, Aamir Khan’s film ‘Lagaan’ and Sunny Deol’s ‘Gadar: Ek Prem Katha’ were released on the same day on 15 June 2001. Both the films were hits. But when it came to awarding the award, ‘Lagaan’ was included and ‘Gadar’ was not. ‘Lagaan’ got the Best Film and Aamir Khan got the Best Actor Award. Sunny Deol also attended this award function. Some people provoked him that he has been called to insult the show. However, the Best Critics Actor’s Choice Award was specially kept for Sunny Deol. Sunny came on stage when called, but took the award and left without saying anything. After the show, the organizers got to know that Sunny had left her award in the bathroom.
