These two films hold the distinction of being part of the even more exclusive ₹500 crore club, showcasing their indomitable box office dominance.
In this landscape of cinematic achievements, Gadar 2’s triumph echoes loudly, solidifying its stature among the titans of Indian cinema and hinting at the possibility of future endeavors inching closer to the remarkable feats achieved by its peers.

Gadar 2 Aims to Surpass Box Office Titans: Pathaan and Baahubali 2
According to the trade analyst’s insights, Gadar 2 appears poised to challenge the domestic box office records set by Pathaan and Baahubali 2.
While Pathaan reigns as the pinnacle earner with an impressive ₹543.05 crore in domestic collections, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion maintains a lifetime domestic collection of ₹510.99 crore, as reported by Bollywood Hungama.
Considering Gadar 2’s current trajectory, it seems poised to breach the coveted ₹500 crore threshold by the close of this week.
The only new contender on the horizon is Dream Girl 2, featuring Ayushmann Khurrana, which is scheduled for release on August 25, introducing fresh competition to the mix.
The question of whether Gadar 2 can sustain its allure and present a formidable challenge to Pathaan’s record will be answered in the upcoming week.
However, its spectacular run is likely to face a hurdle with the impending release of another Shah Rukh Khan venture, Atlee’s action-packed thriller Jawan, which is set to hit theaters on September 7, coinciding with Janmashtami.
Nonetheless, before this pivotal clash, Gadar 2 still boasts the opportunity to capitalize on two weekends and the mid-week holiday of Raksha Bandhan to make substantial gains.
Gadar 2 stands as the sequel to Anil Sharma’s blockbuster action romance of 2001, “Gadar: Ek Prem Katha.”
This cinematic continuation reunites the audience with the cherished personas of Tara Singh and Sakina, portrayed by the legendary Sunny Deol and the talented Ameesha Patel respectively.
The helm of direction remains in the capable hands of Anil Sharma, who guides the film’s narrative, while his son Utkarsh Sharma also takes a significant role within the movie’s ensemble cast.
