A few days back there was a statement made by director Anil Sharma, director of Gadar Ek Prem Katha, that Baahubali2 has not broken any records since according to him his film if released today would have had a valuation of 5000 crores.

Gadar had done a business of 265 crores in 2001 when the ticket rates were Rs 25 only. As per today’s valuation, it is Rs 5,000 crore now and ‘Bahubali 2‘ has just reached some Rs 1,500 crore, so no record has been broken,” he said. (Read full story here: Baahubali 2 vs Gadar Collections)

Of course, we decided to cross check these facts and found out how Gadar today will not make 5000 crores but will maximum scale up to 500 crores. The film’s actual collections in 2001 were 76.88 crores. As per Box Office India, Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel starrer Gadar: Ek Prem Katha’s Adjusted Nett Gross is Rs 4,68,40,71,260, which translates to Rs 468 crores 40 lakhs 71 thousand and 260. Also, the movie had a footfall of 5.05 crores (in the year 2001), which means that the maximum collection today cannot be more than Rs 500-550 crores.

Gadar Ek Prem Katha 6th Friday Was Higher Than Baahubali 2
Gadar Ek Prem Katha 6th Friday Was Higher Than Baahubali 2

Although Anil Sharma may not agree with us, he surely has a reason to cheer now since our latest research suggests that Baahubali 2 collected less than Gadar Ek Prem Katha on its 6th Friday.

Trending :

Baahubali 2 collected less than 1 crore on its 6th Friday while the Sunny Deol starrer was strong at 1 crore Plus collection on its 6th Friday back in 2001, which if converted with today’s valuation is huge! Gadar had footfalls of 5.05 crores during its run and that itself is massive for that time.

Gadar Ek Prem Katha and Baahubali 2 both being good entertainers of its era have obviously made a mark at the box office too.

  1. Abe ch**o….ye btao tab movi zada time k liye lagi rehti thi….multiplx culture Ni tha …ab movi ka poora business 3-4 week m hota h….pehle koi movi chote sheher tak aane m do month lag jata Tha but ab stellite system se sab jagah ek time p lag jaati h…..anil Sharma c**a…..usko bolo veer movi dekh jake

    • bhai pahle cinema hall bhi bahut kam hote the.. so accept things. no doubt BAAHUBALI is good but GADAR was also good and most watched movie that time when population was very less compared to now and count of theaters were too low compared to now and not to forget the fact that GADAR was clashed with the other successful movie LAGAAN. SO JUST CHILL BHAI..

  2. This is the most bizzare comparison that people are making now a days. there is no comparison at all, u cant compare 2 movies box office when there are so many other factors involved.
    it’s like my grandfather saying my income in 60rs per month in 1960’s is way more than ur income.

  3. This is only a jealousy. After #Garder film they are unsuccessful and when time comes to make other down then they target to #Baahabuli 2. Why they were silence before this film like 3 idiots, krish 3, chennai Express, dhoom 3, bajrangi bhaijahan, pk. Those films have done a a outstanding market in Bollywood even though, #Dangal is also doing good. My friend time is different, human are modernizing. Nowadays, many humans don’t count single penny. You compare #baahabuli 2 after 16years as like # Gader. It will become blockbuster in 2033. I know, it is because of time but,
    Old is gold
    New is diamond
    Compare price between diamond and gold. Which is expensive.

  4. Koimoi tumhara koi kaam nahin,

    Woh film Gadar tha,

    Par tum dono ka statements, comparisons,

    Gad dar hai.

  5. Anil Sharma is a choo !!! He is the man who made blunders like Tehalka, Veer, The Hero : love story of a spy, Usko paise de do. Chup ho jayega

    • Gadar is far more ahead than baahubali, gadar movie has exceptional story, star cast , music and action, whereas baahubali has only computerised visuals, there is no story, acting of all the stars almost zero, so comparing the baahubali movie with all time greatest movie like gadar ek prem katha, we are insulting a great movie like gadar and his great director anil sharma

  6. Don’t compare bahubali with movies like gadar.
    Bahubali tend to change the boxoffice history in Indian cinema.

  7. Gadar movie is far ahead from baahubali,gadar movie has a good story,good music and good acting and very good star cast , whereas baahubali movie has only visuals, there is not any story and acting of everyone in this movie is zero. So comparing the Gadar movie with baahubali, we are insulting the great movie all the time like Gadar

  8. at that time there was no pirated video circulated in internet and there were no android mobiles in which you can see pirated movies thats why gadar maintained that record , inspite of facing losses of pirated video baahubali has broke box office records if these pirate videos are not circulated baahubali would have crossed 2000 cr within 10 days

  9. It would be ridiculous to compare films from the pre-piracy era to modern films. Baahubali holds all the week records in Bollywood from 1st to 5th in piracy/multiplex era which will be almost impossible to beat. In this era from 2009 there have only 2 films which have even crossed 2 crores 1st was the all time classic
    3 Idiots which did 4.36 which Baahubali broke the record by doing 5.35. These are the only films which released since 2009 which are even in top 100 for the 6th week. Only 10 films in top 100 its that hard to even cross 1.15 crores in 6th week. The market for Telugu films in Hindi is so low that Baahubali 6th week alone is an all time box office record. It beat the collections of Makkhi which did 4.5. It will finish at 510 which will destroy the previous record 113 times. Market for South films in North India is so bad that it Baahubali’s record from 5th week alone at 17.46 in 15 days broke the record of Bombay 14 & Vishwaroop which did 13.68, I, Hindustani & Roja collected 11 crores each. Only Rajinikanth’s Kabali 24 & Robot 21.50 are ahead at box office.

    Vicky Donor 1.90, Tanu Weds Manu Returns 1.75, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara 1.70, Dangal 1.63, Bajrangi Bhaijaan 1.49, Singham 1.33, Bajirao Mastani 1.26 and Aashiqui 2 at 1.17

  10. There is a reason why for modern films its almost impossible to compete with films which released before the piracy era. Its only in 4 weeks where modern films stand tall otherwise from 5th week onwards its completely the films which released before this era that hold all the records especially since the 6th week. Even Salman films do most of the business in 1st week and then crash and if its content films like Bajrangi they last 2.5 weeks at box office before crashing. Since 2010 It has followed the 3 Idiots-ETT clash where Salman gives massive competition to Aamir in the 1st week but its from then that Aamir shows his supremacy since his record from 2nd week onwards is much better than Salman’s. Baahubali has sustained like an Aamir Khan & The Jungle Book at box office especially his 3 Idiots, Dangal & PK were the best sustaining films of piracy era the only films which give him competition are The Jungle Book, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Aashiqui 2, Tanu Weds Manu Returns, Bajirao Mastani, Vicky Donor, Singham and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.

    In the 7th week its so bad that only 2 films have even done 1 crore since 2009 are 3 Idiots 2.49 and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara 1.18. Dangal almost achieved it 0.97. Followed by this are MSG 2 The Messenger 0.81, Tanu Weds Manu Returns 0.70, Bajrangi Bhaijaan 0.65, Vicky Donor 0.65, Baankey Ki Crazy Baraat 0.56 & MSG 2 The Lion Heart 0.50. Baahubali did 0.33 this friday will give massive competition to 3 Idiots. Its so bad that there are 2 superstar Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh films in the top 10 doing 50 lakhs while Salman & Hrithik did it once and other superstars Ajay, SRK & Akshay have never achieved it.
