Sharma was speaking at the mahurat ceremony of his son Utkarsh's debut film 'Genius,' when he asked about the records set by 'Baahubali 2.' The 'Gadar: Ek Prem Katha' and 'Apne' hitmaker had this to say:
"It is just a matter of time. There was 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. 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."
