When there was a clash between Aamir and Sunny Deol’s film

Every other film that releases these days is clashing with some picture. However, this series of clashes is not new, rather it has been going on for years. In the year 2001, there was a clash between Aamir Khan and Sunny Deol’s film. Both had brought their respective films on the same date.

Aamir had released a film named ‘Lagaan’, on the other hand, Sunny Deol had come up with ‘Gadar’. It has been 23 years since the release of both the films, but even today both the films are talked about. Let’s know today which film won in this clash.

‘Lagaan’ earned so many crores

According to Box Office India, Lagaan, directed by Ashutosh Gowariker, was made on a budget of Rs 24 crore. The film grossed almost 1.4 times more at the domestic box office. The film had a net collection of Rs 34.30 crore. While ‘Gadar’ created history in terms of earnings. The film collected 4 times more than the budget. According to the report, the film cost Rs 19 crore to make and grossed Rs 76.88 crore. This film was directed by Anil Sharma.

Even though ‘Gadar’ won at the box office, ‘Lagaan’ got a lot of recognition internationally. The film was nominated for an Oscar. However, the film missed out on winning an award. Aamir played a character named Bhuvan in ‘Lagaan’. However, he was not the first choice of the producers for the role. In fact, the role was earlier offered to Shah Rukh and Abhishek Bachchan. But when these two did not work out, Aamir was cast.

However, Sunny Deol and Aamir will be seen together in a film in January next year. Aamir is producing a film titled ‘Lahore 1947’. It stars Sunny Deol in the lead role and it is being said that Aamir might be in a cameo role in it.
