‘GADAR2′ BOX OFFICE COLLECTION
‘Gadar 2: The Katha Continues’ is the sequel to the iconic 2001 film, ‘Gadar: Ek Prem Katha’. The Gadar2 is breaking box office records. It has crossed the Rs 100 crore mark in just three days. Ameesha Patel and Sunny Deol return to play Sakina and Tara Singh in ‘Gadar 2’ directed by Anil Sharma.

‘JAILER’ BOX OFFICE COLLECTION
Jailer was released on Thursday amid a huge fan frenzy and collected Rs 48.35 crore on its opening day, according to the trade aggregator Sacnilk.

The gross Indian collection for the film is estimated at Rs 127 crore.
Jailer will become the second fastest Tamil film to earn Rs 300 crores, while Rajinikanth’s 2.o earned Rs 400 crores in four days, making it the first fastest Tamil film to reach Rs 300 crores.
“Other stars take three to four weeks to put up a lifetime gross a big number, but #Superstar @rajinikanth’s #Jailer has crossed it in three to four days, in most other states and overseas markets,” wrote trade analyst Ramesh Bala on Twitter about Rajinikanth-Nelson’s rapid success.
This weekend, Gadar2 and Jailer have set record-breaking performances. Akshay Kumar’s OMG2 was a bit further back in this race. Jailer was the champion as the movie was released on Thursday – there were no other movies to compete with it that day. However, when focussing on Friday’s collection, Gadar2 pulled ahead with its opening-day total of 40.1 crore. Examining gross collection of both films over three days, Gadar2 emerged victorious with 135 crores while Jailer raked in 127 crores over four days. On the worldwide box collection, Jailer reigned supreme as the ultimate box office winner.
