The two most anticipated Bollywood releases of 2023, OMG 2 and Gadar 2, finally hit theaters on Friday, August 12. Both films opened to strong box office numbers, but it was OMG 2 that took the lead on day one.

According to trade estimates, OMG 2 grossed around Rs. 25 crore on its opening day. This is a phenomenal number for a film that is not a sequel or a franchise film. The film’s success is being attributed to Akshay Kumar’s star power and the positive reviews that it has received from critics.

Gadar 2, on the other hand, grossed around Rs. 20 crore on its opening day. This is also a good number for the film, but it is not as high as OMG 2’s opening. Gadar 2 is a sequel to the 2001 blockbuster film Gadar: Ek Prem Katha. The film stars Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel in the lead roles.

It is still early days to say which film will emerge as the winner at the box office. However, OMG 2 has certainly made a good start. The film will need to maintain its momentum in the coming days if it wants to emerge as a blockbuster hit. Gadar 2 will also need to do well in the coming days if it wants to match the success of its predecessor.

Here is a more detailed look at the box office performance of OMG 2 and Gadar 2 on their opening day:
