Gadar 2 Box Office Collection Day 40: Hit by Shah Rukh Khan’s Jawan Onslaught, Sunny Deol Movie Ends BO Run with Rs 45 Lakh Earning
Gadar 2 Box Office Collection
The Sunny Deol film Gadar 2 minted Rs 45 lakh on Tuesday, bringing its total collection to Rs 520.35 crore. The film is eyeing to break the record of Rs 524 crore set by Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan.
Struggling to Surpass Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan
While it initially appeared that Sunny Deol’s Gadar 2 might topple Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan, the film is currently struggling to surpass the impressive benchmark set by SRK’s movie, with earnings of Rs 524 crore.
Competition from Shah Rukh Khan’s Jawan
Gadar 2 faced formidable competition when Shah Rukh Khan’s Jawan hit theaters on September 7. Since its debut, Jawan has been setting records, currently boasting a total collection of Rs 507.88 crore and aiming to surpass the record set by Pathaan.
Gadar 2 Box Office Performance
- Gadar 2 hit screens on August 11, making an impressive opening day collection of Rs 40.1 crore.
- Despite facing stiff competition from other releases like Rajinikanth-starrer Jailer, Akshay Kumar’s OMG 2, and the Alia Bhatt-Ranveer Singh film Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, the movie has consistently performed well at the box office.
- The first installment of Gadar, directed by Anil Sharma, was a blockbuster in 2001, ending with a global box office collection of Rs 130 crore.
- Gadar 2 has outperformed its predecessor by a significant margin.
Shubhra Gupta of The Indian Express gave Gadar 2 a rating of 1.5 stars and commented, “Even when it was released 22 years ago, ‘Gadar’ was known for being excessively loud and melodramatic, embodying the kind of patriotism-drenched cinema that director Anil Sharma was known for. This style was already becoming outdated. This iteration simply reminds you of the loudness, the saccharine sentimentality, and the over-the-top dialogues that Bollywood had started moving away from, which we had hoped were a thing of the past. Clearly, that hope was in vain.”
