Sunny Deol’s Gadar 2, directed by Anil Sharma, has beaten Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan in a bid to become the highest-grossing Hindi film ever in India. The sequel to Gadar: Ek Prem Katha, however, still has to beat another SRK blockbuster - Jawan - to claim the crown.

Gadar 2 has minted 524.75 crore in India. Now, if you are wondering how - with that number - the sequel managed to beat Yash Raj Films’ Pathaan which earned 543.09 crore in the domestic Box Office, here comes the twist.

The movie, which also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, earned 524.53 crore from Hindi shows whereas 18.56 crore came from the other two versions.
