Sunny Deol’s ‘Gadar 2’ sets a new record becoming the fastest Indian film to surpass Rs 500 crore mark at the box office. The film achieved the feat in 24 days, surpassing Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Pathaan’ which took 28 days to achieve the same feat.
Sunny Deol’s latest release, ‘Gadar 2’, has sped past Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Pathaan’ at the Indian box office, making it the fastest film to cross the Rs 500 crore mark. Continuing its rapid success, ‘Gadar 2’ is set to reach the historic milestone on its 24th day of release today, September 3.
‘GADAR 2’ BREAKS ‘PATHAAN’ RECORD
In comparison, ‘Pathaan’ took four more days – a total of 28 – to hit the same figure. Even the Hindi version of the hugely popular ‘Baahubali 2’, required 34 days to achieve this feat in the domestic market. The INR 500 crore club is thus getting a new entrant in record time. But it isn’t just any new entrant. It’s ‘#Gadar2’, the #Hindi film now rewriting box office history in India.
The reports come a night after the two actors met at the success bash of ‘Gadar 2’. The two were seen hugging each other, thereby solidifying their reunion after the infamous feud post ‘Darr’s’ release in the ’90s.
ABOUT THE TWO MOVIES
Echoing the interdisciplinary essence of its predecessor film, ‘Gadar: Ek Prem Katha,’ the sequel revolves around Tara Singh going to Pakistan to rescue his son. The sequel won hearts by focusing on telling a compelling tale of love, sacrifice, and nationalism that resonated with the audience. Alongside Sunny Deol, the movie starred Ameesha Patel, Utkarsh Sharma, among others.
On the other hand, ‘Pathaan’, featuring Shah Rukh Khan in and as titular role, is a part of YRF’s spy universe. The other heroes in the universe include Tiger, Kabir from War. Shah Rukh Khan is seen alongside Deepika Padukone in ‘Pathaan’. The movie marked SRK’s return to the cinema after four years and fans did not shy away from pouring their love on King Khan by registering record-breaking footfalls.
