Bollywood actors Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel’s recent film Gadar 2 has been ruling the box office so far. But as Shah Rukh Khan‘s Jawan has released positive reviews today 7 September 2023, we discuss here about Gadar 2’s collections.
On its fourth Wednesday i.e. yesterday, Gadar 2 collected Rs. 2.80 crores and as per reports, the film has collected Rs. 508.97 crores to date. Interestingly, Gadar 2 enjoyed 27 days successfully in theatres after the first-day collection stood at Rs. 40 crore on 11 August 2023.
Despite having stiff competition from Akshay Kumar’s OMG 2 and Rajinikanth’s Jailer, Gadar 2 crossed Rs. 500 crores on its fourth Sunday. It is all set to beat the collection of the Hindi version of Baahubali: The Conclusion at the domestic box office.
However, it seems unlikely that Gadar 2 will beat the collections of Pathaan as Shah Rukh’s second film Jawan has been released in theatres due to positive word-of-mouth publicity and reviews from critics. It is said that the theatres have got high advance bookings for King Khan’s movie Jawan, which means Soldier.
Dharmendra who is Sunny’s father had taken to X (formerly called Twitter) to wish Shah Rukh Khan ahead of the release of Jawan, “Shah Rukh, Bete (son) wish you a great luck for JAWAN.” It seems interesting to note if Gadar 2 will be able to stay in theatres after the release of Atlee’s directorial Jawan.
When Sunny Deol is rocking the screens, on an interesting note, his son Rajveer Deol will be making his film debut in Dono which also marks the acting debut of Poonam Dhillon’s daughter Paloma. For the unversed, Dono will be directed by Sooraj Barjatya’s son Avnish who also marks his directorial debut. It will be released in theatres on October 5, 2023.
Rajveer mentioned how he considers his father as a role model because he taught him to stay dedicated and determined and never give up. He said how he took up the romantic film for his debut so that he wouldn’t be typecast by the images of tough roles played by his father Sunny and grandfather Dharmendra.
Back to Gadar 2, the film also features Anil Sharma’s son Utkarsh Sharma as Jeete and Ameesha Patel as Sakeena. Sunny Deol revives the role of Tara Singh in the film. Actor Gaurav Chopra performs Lieutenant Colonel Devendra Rawat in the movie which also has Manish Wadhwa, Manoj Bakshi, Simrat Kaur, and Luv Sinha among the ensemble cast.
Directed by Anil Sharma, the film takes us to the story of tensions happening between India and Pakistan before the 1971 war. However, the film’s director has denied all accusations that his film Gadar 2 is anti-Muslim or anti-Pakistani. He has stated how the film promotes the language of unity and doesn’t promote any hatred.
Let us hope for the best for both the Bollywood movies Jawan and Gadar 2 so that the Bollywood or Hindi film industry can revive all its audiences back in theatres.
