Mumbai, September 9 – Sunny Deol-fronted Gadar 2: The Katha Continues takes one step closer to Shah Rukh Khan’s “Pathaan” as far as the Indian box office is concerned.
The period action drama film, directed by Anil Sharma, has crossed SS Rajamouli’s mega blockbuster “Baahubali 2 The Conclusion” to become the second highest Hindi net collection scorer of all-time. BB2 had scored 510.99 crores net in Hindi, which is still the highest collection ever in the dubbed version in India.
At the time of writing this piece, Gadar 2 has topped BB2 Hindi collection, and is now left behind only Pathaan which scored a little over 524 crores net in Hindi earlier this year. The Sunny Deol-starrer movie has slowed down after the release of Shah Rukh Khan’s “Jawan”, but it is still in the race to cross Pathaan.
Gadar 2 was made in the budget of around 70 crores, and as things stand today, it is one of the most profitable Indian movies of all-time. It is also the lowest budgeted movie among the all three films topping 500 crores net in Hindi, however, Baahubali 2 being a dubbed version will always remain a colossal achievement in the history of not only Hindi but also in the Indian cinema.
As far as the worldwide collection is concerned, Gadar 2 is nearing 670 crores gross, including 65+ crores from overseas collection.
