Key Highlight
  • Gadar 2 has sold 2.65 lakh tickets in national chains for the opening day.
  • Gadar 2 has sold the 3rd most number of tickets for a Hindi film in Hindi in top national chains.
  • Gadar 2: The Katha Continues releases in theatres today, that is on the 11th of August, 2023.

Gadar 2: The Katha Continues, directed by Anil Sharma and starring Sunny Deol, Ameesha Patel and Utkarsh Sharma is in its release day now. The film is a sequel to the all time blockbuster Bollywood film Gadar: Ek Prem Katha and the anticipation for the film was high right from when it was announced. The same has reflected in the advance bookings across India with the film selling 2.65 lakh tickets in top 3 national chains alone. The advances outside the top 3 chains are spectacular and the best since Pathaan. The opening day total of Rs 30 crores is nothing but locked for this high adrenaline movie sequel if advance bookings are anything to go by.

 

Gadar 2 Has Sold 2.65 Lakh Tickets In Top National Chains For The Opening Day In India

Gadar 2 has sold 1.13 lakh tickets in PVR,  97 thousand tickets in Inox and 55 thousand tickets in Cinepolis. These numbers have come despite the fact that it is clashing with another reasonably big film OMG 2. Had there not been programming issues that have arised due to the clashing of two films and the strongly holding of Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, it would have probably sold over 3 lakh tickets in the national chains. The advance bookings are the third best for an outright Hindi film in Hindi in top national chains this year only behind Pathaan and Adipurush. In terms of organic ticket sales, it is second only to Pathaan. It is the fifth best selling film in advance post pandemic for the Hindi language in top 3 national chains, only behind Pathaan, KGF 2, Brahmastra and Adipurush.
