Golmaal Again is the fourth installment of popular franchisee Golmaal. The latest offering by Rohit Shetty has helped it become the third highest grossing film franchise of Bollywood.
The first movie which was made a decade back has come a long way now. The franchisee has beaten the likes of Dabangg, Don and Krrish to grab the third spot.
Golmaal, which has always been helmed by Rohit Shetty, is the first comedy franchise to enter the elite Rs.500 crore club. Golmaal Again stands atop among other sequels by collecting a whopping Rs. 136 crores in the domestic circuit, and Rs.165 crores (approx) worldwide until Thursday (October 26).
#GolmaalAgain packs a REMARKABLE ₹ 136.07 cr in Week 1… All set to be the SECOND HIGHEST grosser of 2017 today [Fri], after #Baahubali2… Fri 30.14 cr, Sat 28.37 cr, Sun 29.09 cr, Mon 16.04 cr, Tue 13.25 cr, Wed 10.05 cr, Thu 9.13 cr. Total: ₹ 136.07 cr. India biz. #GolmaalAgain – OVERSEAS – Total till Thursday, 26 October 2017: $ 4.42 million [₹ 28.72 cr].
Not only this, the Ajay Devgn starrer has also become the fastest Bollywood film to cross Rs. 100 crore mark in 2017. The supernatural comedy helped it fill maximum seats in theatres.
Bahubaali and Dhoom have been constant at the first and second position respectively. Bahubaali has a lifetime collection of Rs.2375 crores, while Dhoom had minted Rs.807 crores.
There are chances of Golmaal surpassing the figures of Dhoom, but the chances of making its way past S S Rajamouli’s Baahubali are meek.
The Golmaal series has, until now, earned an approximate figure of Rs.522 crores and is still counting. Here is a look at the lifetime collection of all four movies of the franchisee:
Golmaal: Fun Unlimited—Rs. 41.25 crores
Golmaal Returns – Rs. 108 crores
Golmaal 3 — Rs. 160 crores
Golmaal Again — Rs.183 crores (still running)
According to reports, If Golmaal Again rakes in over Rs.189 crores at the box office in the domestic market; it will make its way into the list of top 15 highest grossing Bollywood films ever.
Being a part of a franchise with a set of powerhouse actors is always advantageous for a film and Rohit Shetty has proved it time and again.
Ajay Devgn, Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor, Mukesh Tiwari and Sanjay Mishra have been constant in all the installments of Golmaal, while additions have been made with each film.
