Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal Again has been doing wonders at the box office. Having collected a total of Rs 201.43 crore till now, it crossed the coveted Rs 200 crore mark on Sunday itself. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted: “And it’s a DOUBLE CENTURY… #GolmaalAgain crosses ₹ 200 cr… Remains STRONG in Weekend 4, despite new releases and reduced screen space/shows… [Week 4] Fri 62 lakhs, Sat 1.16 cr, Sun 1.69 cr. Total: ₹ 201.43 cr. India biz… BLOCKBUSTER! #GolmaalAgain200cr.”
Taran also added, “The Ajay Devgn – Rohit Shetty combo has tasted success yet again… #GolmaalAgain is Ajay’s first ₹ 200 cr grosser and director Rohit’s second… #GolmaalAgain200cr.” Earlier, Taran wrote, #GolmaalAgain steps into ₹ 200 cr Club today [Sun; Day 24]… [Week 4] Fri 62 lakhs, Sat 1.16 cr. Total: ₹ 199.74 cr. India biz… BLOCKBUSTER!”
The horror-comedy had opened to a staggering Rs 30.14 crore on October 20 against Aamir Khan’s coming-of-age drama Secret Superstar which raked in Rs 4.80 crore. And Golmaal Again’s figures have been unstoppable ever since. Starring Ajay Devgn, Ajay Devgn, Arshad Warsi, Shreyas Talpade, Tusshar Kapoor, Kunal Kemmu, Parineeti Chopra, Tabu and Neil Nitin Mukesh, Golmaal Again was able to surpass the Rs 100-crore mark in just a week’s time. And now in its fourth week, it is still going strong with its collection of over Rs 200 Crore.
Apart from Baahubali 2, Golmaal Again is the only film to enter the Rs 200 crore club in 2017. It is also the highest Bollywood grosser of the year closely followed by Varun Dhawan’s Judwaa 2. What seemed to have worked in the favour of Golmaal Again was its Diwali release and the unusual combination of a horror comedy in Bollywood. Also, Golmaal Again’s ensemble cast with a number of new faces in the franchise helped gather the attention of cinema-goers in general.
