As per trade sources, the film is made at an estimated budget of Rs30 crore. Therefore, the film’s total earnings so far is not quite encouraging. It still has a long way to go reach its cost of production. 

Anil Sharma’s Gadar, which launched his son Utkarsh Sharma in Hindi cinema, has been a disaster at the box office. Earning only Rs50 lakh yesterday, the film has managed a total of only Rs3.50 crore against its estimated budget of Rs25 crore. The film is staring at a major defeat at the ticket window.
