Gadar 2 Surpasses Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan to Become the New Bollywood Industry Hit.
In a stunning turn of events, Bollywood’s iconic sequel, Gadar 2, has shattered expectations, claiming the title of the new industry hit in the Bollywood scene. Starring the ever-memorable Sunny Deol in the lead role, this film has managed to outshine Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan in terms of All India Hindi net gross.
Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan had previously held the record with a net gross of approximately 520 crores in India. However, Gadar 2 has now surged ahead, amassing an impressive 522 crores from India alone. The key metric in determining industry hit status is the domestic gross, and Gadar 2 has firmly established itself as the frontrunner in this category, despite Pathaan’s global earnings exceeding 1000 crores.
Nevertheless, industry insiders suggest that Gadar 2’s reign at the top may be short-lived. Shah Rukh Khan’s latest release, Jawan, is poised to challenge for the industry crown. Current trends indicate that Jawan is on track to surpass Gadar 2’s Hindi net gross from India.
Anil Sharma directed the blockbuster Gadar 2, with production support from Zee Studios, Anil Sharma Productions, and MM Movies. Ameesha Patel played the pivotal female lead role, and the film boasted a talented ensemble cast including Gaurav Chopra, Utkarsh Sharma, and Manish Wadhwa. It’s worth noting that the original Gadar, released in 2001, was a timeless blockbuster during its era.
As the Bollywood landscape continues to evolve, Gadar 2’s remarkable journey to the top of the industry charts demonstrates the enduring appeal of Indian cinema classics.
