OMG 2 Vs Gadar 2 at box office.
Who says box-office clashes should be avoided to prevent their likely effect on movies’ earnings? Well, times have changed now and for the better. Recently, Sunny Deol starrer Gadar 2 clashed with Akshay Kumar starrer OMG 2 at the box office on August 11. Contrary to popular belief, both movies together have minted over Rs 280 crores across India.
Of the Rs 280 crores, Rs 200 crores are minted by Gadar 2 alone, while a little over Rs 80 crores have been minted by OMG 2. Clearly, this is a great feat, especially after the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic.
