Karan Johar On Sunny Deol-Ameesha Patel’s ‘Gadar 2’ Breaking Records: “It has blown everyone’s brains away”

Aug 23, 2023

Filmmaker Karan Johar, who is riding high on the success of his latest directorial venture Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, has applauded Gadar 2, which has emerged as one of the biggest hits of the year.

The Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel-starrer, which is a sequel to the 2001 blockbuster Gadar: Ek Prem Katha, has crossed Rs 500 crore worldwide and is nearing 400 crore mark at domestic box office, beating Aamir Khan’s Dangal in India.

 

Karan Johar On Gadar 2 Breaking Box Office Records

In an interview with a leading entertainment portal, Karan Johar said he is so glad with the phenomenal response that Gadar 2 has received from the single screen audience.

Karan said, “Gadar has blown everyone’s brains away because it was a film which was hugely successful in 2001, and now in 2023, it is breaking every record. I have been so glad for the single screens.” When he was asked whom he’d message if he hypothetically got his hands on Sunny’s phone, Karan joked that he’d text the entire film industry and tell them that ‘this is how it’s done’.

He added, “If you will see, all these movies that have done well are riding on one very strong quality, that is, core conviction. They are not looking at validation from anybody else, neither social media nor film critics. Everyone is making personable films that appeal to their sensibilities, and I think that’s what is going to happen, more of that in the future. We will be riding this wave every year.”

 

Gadar 2 Breaks New Box Office Records

Gadar 2, which released on August 11, has shattered several box office records in its two-week run. The film opened with a massive Rs 40 crore on its first day, making it the second-highest opening day collection of all time after Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan. The film also recorded the highest second weekend collection of Rs 110.47 crore, beating Pathaan’s Rs 105.23 crore. The film has also surpassed the lifetime collections of films like Dangal, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Tiger Zinda Hai, PK and Sanju to become the fifth-highest grossing Hindi film ever in India. The film is now eyeing to cross the Rs 400 crore mark in India and join the elite club of Baahubali 2 and KGF Chapter 2.

Gadar 2 has also performed well in the overseas market, where it has collected over Rs 100 crore so far. The film has received a positive response from countries like USA, UK, UAE, Australia and Canada.

The film is still trailing behind Pathaan after 11 days of run and is a disaster overseas and that is why Pathan’s worldwide and overseas records will remain intact.

 

Karan Johar’s Upcoming Films

Karan Johar has several upcoming projects under his banner Dharma Productions. He is producing Yodha, a film starring Sidharth Malhotra and Disha Patani, which will release on December 15 in theaters.
