Gadar 2 Collection: The Indian cinematic scene has been a flurry of activity, with one blockbuster chasing the tail of another. Shahrukh Khan, the Badshah of Bollywood, has been on a roll, serving cinematic extravaganzas to fans, keeping their spirits buoyed throughout the year.
In its debut week, ‘Jawan’ did not just make waves but caused a veritable tsunami at the box office. The film amassed a staggering net collection of Rs 390 crores in India alone. Globally, the numbers were even more impressive, with its worldwide gross inching dangerously close to the 700 crore mark.
By the close of its first week, ‘Jawan’ had etched its name as the second highest-grossing Indian film of 2023. This magnificent feat set the industry abuzz, speculating if ‘Jawan’ could outshine Shahrukh’s other hit, ‘Pathan’, in its subsequent weekend earnings.
However, while ‘Jawan’ has been spectacular in its performance, Sunny Deol’s ‘Gadar 2’ continues to reign supreme in specific metrics. The second Sunday post-release is a significant day in gauging a film’s sustained popularity. ‘Gadar 2’, in its glory, had raked in a net collection of Rs 39 crores on this very day.
In comparison, ‘Jawan’, while impressive, garnered earnings in the ballpark of Rs 34-35 crores for its Hindi version on its second Sunday. This places ‘Jawan’ slightly behind ‘Gadar 2’ when it comes to the second Sunday showdown.
Nevertheless, box office comparisons aside, both films have carved their unique niche in the hearts of movie-goers. The staggering numbers are a testament to Indian cinema’s resilience and the undying love of the audience for compelling stories and their favorite stars. With 2023 witnessing such monumental successes, fans eagerly await what the industry has in store next.
