Gadar 2 has taken a record start at the box office, and has brought in the kind of collections that are unexpected, unimaginable and unprecedented. This is practically the first time ever when in a clash a film has opened so big and that too by a margin. Not just that, as the numbers are simply superb even if it were to be a solo release. Account for the non-holiday factor and Gadar 2 starts looking even bigger.
That’s right, there are a lot of records which Gadar 2 has already broken on its release day itself and there would be sheer mayhem right till August 15 at least when a lot of new records would be rewritten. That has been made possible by a start of Rs. 40.10 crores that the Sunny Deol and Anil Sharma film has taken at the box office on Friday. Even half of this would have been a great number, so one can well imagine how the film has gone beyond great already. In fact, the film now has all the chances to hit the Rs. 50 crores mark and one has to see whether it happens on Sunday or Tuesday (Independence Day holiday).
Sunny Deol was amongst the Top-3 Bollywood superstars for a large part of the 80s and the 90s, and then even early 2000s once Gadar: Ek Prem Katha released. However, post 2010 was a dull period for him when only Yamla Pagla Deewana turned out to be a big hit. Now the actor has shown this generation all over again what the star power is all about and it would be excellent to see him carry forward this huge feat even when he steps into the 70s, something that no Bollywood actor has ever achieved before.
