Baahubali 2 may have broken all kind of possible records since its release. However, the director of Gadar, Anil Sharma has something else in his mind as he has said that BB2 is yet to break Gadar record.
Talking about Baahubali 2, he said, “It is just a matter of time. There was a a time when, in 2001, Gadar : Ek Prem Katha was released and had done a business of 265 crore, which as per today’s calculation is Rs 5,000 crore.”
On being asked the same question again and again, the director said: “Please don’t frame me in all these things. If some good film comes, records would be broken. And as far as Bahubali 2 is concerned, it has not yet set any record. As mentioned, Gadar had done a business of Rs 265 crore in 2001 when the ticket rates were Rs 25 only. As per valuation, it is Rs 5,000 crore today and ‘Bahubali 2’ has just reached some Rs 1,500 crore, so no record has been broken,” he added.
Anil Sharma is currently gearing up for his next release which will mark the debut of his son Utkarsh. “The script of the film did not let us sleep for two years. We all were nervous thinking about how it will shape up. But finally when the script was ready, all nervousness just ended,” said Anil Sharma.
“Utkarsh’s debut film is Gadar (as a child artiste) and he was very confident in his first film itself. People have seen his performance in Gadar so they have lots of expectations from him and even Utkarsh has a big responsibility on him. Let’s see what happens,” said Anil.
