Sunny Deol Vs Shah Rukh Khan: ‘Gadar 2’ beats ‘Pathaan’; know how
Sunny Deol's 'Gadar 2' sets a new record, becoming the fastest Indian film to surpass Rs 500 crore mark at the box office. The film achieved the feat in 24 days, surpassing Shah Rukh Khan's 'Pathaan', which took 28 days to achieve the same feat.
In comparison, it took four more days - a total of 28 - for 'Pathaan' to reach the same amount. Even the Hindi version of the massively successful 'Baahubali 2' took 34 days to reach this milestone in the home market. Thus, the INR 500 crore club has a new member in record time. But this isn't just any newcomer. The #Hindi film '#Gadar2' is now rewriting box office history in India.
The claims came only one night after the two stars met at the 'Gadar 2' victory party. The two were spotted hugging one other, cementing their reconciliation following the epic dispute that erupted following the release of 'Darr' in the 1990s.
