But before it enters the Rs 500 crore mark, let’s take a look at the film’s magnificent milestone timeline.
Gadar 2 Crosses Rs 100 Crore Mark
In the opening weekend, as Taran Adarsh puts it, “Gadar 2 created Gadar at the box office.” The film had an opening of ₹ 40.10 crore on its first day, followed by an earning of ₹ 43 crore the next day. By the end of its first weekend, Gadar 2‘s total box office collection had breached the 100 crore mark with ease and stood at ₹134.88 crore.
Sharing the updates, Taran Adarsh said, “Tara Singh smashes the #BO with his sledgehammer… #Gadar2 creates #Gadar at the #BO… The GLORIOUS opening weekend proves, yet again, that *well-made* desi entertainers will never go out of fashion… All eyes on #IndependenceDay: Picture abhi baaki hain… Fri 40.10 cr, Sat 43.08 cr, Sun 51.70 cr. Total: ₹134.88 cr. #India biz.” Taran Adarsh further added, “It’s crystal clear by now – if #Gadar2 was a solo release, NOT clashing with another #Hindi film – it would’ve easily added another ₹ 30 cr in its *weekend total*.” For context, Gadar 2 clashed with Akshay Kumar’s OMG 2 at the box office.

Gadar 2 scripts history on Independence Day
The film created “history” after emerging as the highest grosser ever on Independence Day. The movie earned over ₹ 55 crore on August 15, the highest business a movie has ever registered on Independence Day, according to Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh. Needless to say, with this massive feat, Gadar 2 entered the coveted club of ₹ 200 crore within day 5 of its release.
Taran Adarsh’s post read, “CREATES HISTORY ON INDEPENDENCE DAY… Highest-ever biz on *15 August*… Yes, #Gadar2 hits the ball out of the stadium on #IndependenceDay… Fri 40.10 cr, Sat 43.08 cr, Sun 51.70 cr, Mon 38.70 cr, Tue 55.40 cr. Total: ₹ 228.98 cr. #India biz… BLOCKBUSTER RUN continues,” tweeted Taran Adarsh. He added, “#Gadar2 faced capacity issues – not just at single screens, but also at multiplexes – on #IndependenceDay… The demand is clearly more than supply in this case since #OMG2 has taken away a substantial number of screens, shows, footfalls and revenue… Just imagine the potential of #Gadar2 if it was a solo release.”
