Gadar 2 has been doing exceptionally well at the box office since Day 1 of its release. It has finally crossed the ₹400 crore mark on Day 12. Directed by Anil Sharma, the film witnessed a slight dip at the box office on its second Tuesday.
According to the latest reports from our sources, Gadar 2 earned ₹11.50 crore net in India on its 12th day. The week one collection of the film stands at ₹284.63 crore.

The film stars Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel in the lead roles. Gadar 2 is the sequel to Gadar: Ek Prem Katha (2001), where Sunny played the character of Tara Singh, a truck driver, while Ameesha Patel played Sakeena. The film was set during the partition of India in 1947. Gadar 2 follows Tara Singh as he ventures across the border, daringly attempting to rescue his son, portrayed by Utkarsh Sharma, who has been captured in Pakistan.
Further reports proved that Sunny launched a special screening of Gadar 2 in London. Organized by the Indian High Commission in London and its cultural wing, the Nehru Centre, the power-packed launch took place at Vue Cinema Leicester Square on Monday. Sunny revealed he was “scared” of doing this sequel 22 years ago, but during the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown, the idea was crystalized and “clicked straight away.”
During the launch event, Sunny said, “Indians worldwide are celebrating this film; I can’t tell you how beautiful it is. I never expected it to be what it was, what it is right now. I believe every man wants his wife to be like Sakeena, and every woman wants her husband to be like Tara Singh. And, the family, the way they hold on together and fight off everything, is the story’s basic USP (unique selling point).”
