Gadar 2 box office collection day 8: Sunny Deol starrer Gadar 2 has been enjoying a dream run at the box office and is looking forward to its second successful weekend at the box office.

Sunny Deol starrer Gadar 2 has been enjoying a historic run at the box office. After a successful first week in the cinemas where the film made Rs 284.63 crore nett in India, the eighth day of the film brought in Rs 19.5 crore, as per industry tracker Sacnilk. This takes the film’s domestic nett collection to Rs 304.13 crore.

The film’s domestic gross collection crossed the Rs 300 crore mark on its seventh day and after the eighth day, it currently stands at Rs 335.9 crore. The film’s overseas collection, as per the industry tracker, stands at Rs 33.1 crore.

Gadar 2 is now looking forward to its second weekend in the cinemas. The film released amidst some competition from Akshay Kumar starrer OMG 2 and Ranveer Singh-Alia Bhatt film Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani but Gadar 2 has emerged as the clear winner. The film opened with a humungous Rs 40.1 crore at the box office and has maintained a good footfall at the cinemas in the following days. The Anil Sharma film is expected to enjoy another successful weekend at the cinemas now since there are no big releases this weekend.

Gadar’s strong legacy
Gadar 2 is the sequel to the 2001 film Gadar which also starred Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel in lead roles. Back then, the film released against Aamir Khan starrer Lagaan and both films were seen as landmark films of the era. While Gadar was applauded in the domestic market, Lagaan managed to get international acclaim as it got nominated at the Academy Awards.

Gadar 2 is set in 1971 and follows Sunny’s Tara Singh back into Pakistan where his son Jeeta, played by Utkarsh Sharma, is being held hostage. Sunny has been known for his action avatar since his early days and it seems like the audience is still delighted by this avatar of the actor.
