After 17 years, Sunny Deol as Tara Singh and Ameesha Patel as Sakina arrived with 'Gadar 2' on the big screen. In 2001, 'Gadar: Ek Prem Katha' proved to be a massive blockbuster and the sequel has recreated the magic. 'Gadar 2''s release day was no less a festival as fans arrived in groups to enjoy the nostalgic film directed by Anil Sharma. And now the love has been reflected at the box office. 

Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel-starrer 'Gadar 2' has opened to a massive Rs 40.1 crore at the box office. They are only second to Shah Rukh Khan's Pathaan which was released earlier this year. Trade analyst Tara Adarsh took to his Twitter handle to share the first-day collection of 'Gadar 2'. 

"#SunnyDeol unleashes his power… All pre-release calculations / estimations go for a toss… #Gadar2 RUNS RIOT at the #BO, is SENSATIONAL on Day 1… FLYING START all over… SECOND HIGHEST OPENER OF 2023… Fri ₹ 40.10 cr. #India biz.

Mass sectors and single screens are on a record-smashing spree … Unlike *most* films - which have major contribution from the national chains [#PVR, #INOX, #Cinepolis] and barely 20% to 30% from mass sectors - #Gadar2 is simply historic in mass pockets.

Now imagine its potential on #IndependenceDay big holiday [on Tue]."

On the other hand, Akshay Kumar's OMG 2 was also released on the same day. While a big clash was expected at the box office, OMG 2 fared well behind 'Gadar 2'. However, 'OMG 2' is likely to pick up pace in the days to come become of the positive reviews from audience and critics. 

Taking to Twitter and sharing the Box Office update for OMG 2, Taran Adarsh wrote, "#OMG2 fares much better than expected, although the numbers are severely impacted by #Gadar2 wave… Recorded better occupancy at prime multiplexes in evening and night shows, which should ensure solid growth over the weekend… Fri ₹ 10.26 cr. #India biz.

#OMG2 is heavily dependent on word of mouth and this factor will decide where it lands in the coming days… The #IndependenceDay holiday [on Tue] will certainly boost its biz, but it needs to sustain beyond the big holiday to establish itself."
