Sunny Deol opens up about Gadar 2 and OMG 2 box office clash, “barabari mat karo”


August 2023 is set to be one of the most exciting time for Indian cinema, as it will see the return of Sunny Deol’s Gadar 2 along with Akshay Kumar’s OMG 2. However, the fans are worried about the clash between these two juggernauts, as both of them as set to hit the theatres on August 11.

Sunny Deol recalled the time when his Gadar was clashing at the box office against Aamir Khan starrer Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India. He went on to note that there is no comparison between the two films. Sunny Deol was asked about the many big banner films clashing at the box office this year. Expressing his thoughts on the idea of Gadar 2 clashing with OMG 2 on the Friday release, he said that a good film should not be compared with others.


Gadar did ₹100 crore plus (at the box office), while Lagaan did much lesser. I don’t understand why people compare – whether it’s from the business or likeability point. Gadar didn’t have the perception, people thought it is this masala film, yeh purani type ki picture hai, purane type ke gaane hai (People thought Gadar is old sort of film with old songs).

On the other hand, people thought Lagaan was classic, etc. The so-called people who talk about films had run down Gadar completely. It went on to become a people’s film, and they loved it. At award shows, I remember that they made a spoof of Gadar, but we weren’t bothered by it. It has happened with some of my other films too, like Ghayal and Dil, which clashed.
