Gadar 2 box office collection day 16: Sunny Deol film earns Rs 439.95 crore

Sunny Deol’s Gadar 2 continues to roar at the box office after its release. The sequel to the 2001 war drama has been an unstoppable collection at the box office. After a slight dip over the week, Gadar 2 saw a big spike on Saturday as it minted Rs 13.75 crore, taking the 16-day collection to Rs 439.95 crore. The Anil Sharma directorial has now crossed KGF 2 Hindi’s collection (Rs 435 crore) to become the third-highest film in Hindi.

The Sunny Deol-Ameesha Patel film is now behind only Pathaan (Rs 543 crores net) and Baahubali 2’s The Conclusion (Rs 511 crores net). Gadar 2 is likely to cross Rs 500 crore in its fourth week after release; however, it’s unacceptable that it will surpass its two predecessors. Shah Rukh Khan’s Jawan is set to release on September 7, which could become its biggest obstacle.

Gadar 2 vs. Pathaan

In a recent interview, director Anil Sharma gave some information about how he, along with the film’s star Sunny Deol, never paid heed to the box office hype. He said that they wanted to “make a space in people’s hearts” with Gadar 2, and they have successfully managed to create another hype in people’s hearts.

Asked how he felt about his film possibly overtaking Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan, Anil Sharma told India.com, “I don’t believe in numbers of outcomes as a success; Pathaan has done exceptionally well; even KGF (Chapter 2) did extremely well in acting; and now, Gadar 2 is performing as well as or better than exception. Now, let’s see the increment in collection, how far it goes, and how far the public takes it. It is the public’s film. We have already crossed Rs 400 crore; it will reach the Rs 500 crore mark in the coming week of September and maybe the Rs 1,000 crore mark at some point. So, we are not considered by numbers alone; we are trying to make a place in people’s hearts. People are watching it and loving it; that’s enough for us.
