The sequel of Gadar: Ek Prem Katha, starring Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel, hit the screens on August 11 and had a strong box office run for a month. However, its collections started to dip after Shah Rukh Khan’s Jawan released. The film earned Rs 1.45 crore on its 30th day, after making Rs 90 lakhs on the previous day. The total domestic nett collection of the film is now Rs 512.35 crore.
Gadar 2 faced competition from Akshay Kumar’s OMG 2 and Rajinikanth’s Jailer at the box office. It also survived the release of Ayushmann Khurrana’s Dream Girl 2 on August 25.
Gadar 2 slipped from the second spot to the third spot in the list of the highest Hindi openers of 2023 after Jawan released. Jawan topped the list with Rs 75 crores, followed by Pathaan with Rs 57 crores, and Gadar 2 with Rs 40 crores.
Gadar 2 is a continuation of the 2001 film Gadar: Ek Prem Katha. Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel return as Tara and Sakeena in the film. Anil Sharma directed the film, which also featured Utkarsh Sharma in an important role.
