‘Gadar 2’ box office success: Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut on Saturday shared a video of several people queuing up outside a theatre to book tickets for Gadar 2 shows. Ranaut latest Sunny Deol film could have made anywhere between Rs 65 crore to Rs 70 crore if it did not clash with the Akshay Kumar-starrer OMG 2 at the box office. Ranaut said that the movie single-handedly brought “excitement and nationalism back into people’s lives”.
Gadar 2, which features Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel, has set the cash registers ringing ever since its release on August 11 alongside Akshay Kumar-starrer OMG 2. The Sunny Deol film collected around Rs 131.18 crore within the first three days of its theatrical release, as per trade portal Sacnilk.
“Forget the holiday, even if it was a solo release, the first day could easily be ₹65-70 crore... but it is not just the economic drought that's getting over in the film industry but look at people. Happy to see cinema bringing excitement and nationalism back into people's lives... Long live Tara Singh, Sunny Deol," Ranaut wrote in her Instagram Stories.
The actor and producer, known for performances in Manikarnika and Simran, also went onto describe Sunny Deol as a “proper manly hero” and described the film as having “proper massy content”.
“No mafia politics, no bought reviews, no fake propaganda, no buying of tickets through bulk corporate bookings, no cartoon looking actors, proper manly hero and proper massy content…,” she further said.
Apart from Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel, Gadar 2 features Utkarsh Sharma, Simratt Kaur, Manish Wadhwa, Rakesh Bedi, Luv Sinha, Mushtaq Khan and Gaurav Chopra in pivotal roles.
Directed by Anil Sharma, the film is a sequel to the 2001 blockbuster film Gadar. Gadar 2 is set in the backdrop of the 1971 India-Pakistan war and focuses on Tara Singh and his family who fight against the enemies of their family and the country together.
