This Independence Day eve witnessed the clash of OMG 2 and Gadar 2. The two sequels had a tough time at the Box office competing with each other. However, we saw the dominance of Sunny Deol’s Gadar 2 at the box office. Yet OMG 2, starring Akshay Kumar, Pankaj Tripathi, and Yami Gautam Dhar, has performed well domestically. The dramedy saw strong growth over the weekend, followed by a solid hold on Monday. It benefited from the national holiday of Independence Day and saw its highest single-day collection on August 15th, with ₹17.10 crore.
The film’s total collection now stands at ₹72.27 crore. It is expected to surpass the box office collections of Bholaa (₹82.04 crore), Zara Hatke Zara Bachke (₹88 crore), and Satyaprem Ki Katha (₹77.55 crore) to become the eighth highest-grossing film of 2023. The top 7 films are:
Pathaan (₹543.05 crore)
The Kerala Story (₹242.20 crore)
Gadar 2 (₹228.98 crore*)
Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar (₹149.05 crore)
