Aamir Khan is known to shatter the box office with the kind of films he does. His movies set records, which are not easy to break. The resounding success of his last film, Dangal, does all the talking. But there is another superstar, who has managed to outdo one record that was set by Aamir three years back. Yep! Ajay Devgn’s Golmaal Again, which is slowly inching towards the Rs 200 crore mark, has crossed Rs 35 crore mark in the Gujarat- Saurashtra belt. And with this, Golmaal Again has managed to beat the previous record holder PK (Rs 33 crore), which was directed by Rajkumar Hirani and starred R Madhavan, Sharman Joshi, Kareena Kapoor Khan along with Aamir. That is a remarkable feat to achieve, no?
Golmaal Again, which released on October 20 is facing a competition from Sonakshi Sinha, Sidharth Malhotra and Akshaye Khanna starrer, Ittefaq and Thor: Ragnarok. Despite that, the Rohit Shetty directorial has continued to perform well in its third week. The film managed to collect Rs 1.11 on Thursday and now stands with the grand total of Rs 197.96 crore.

Trade analyst, Taran Adarsh tweeted the collections, “#GolmaalAgain continued its VICTORY MARCH in Week 3… All set to cross ₹ 200 cr in Week 4… [Week 3] Fri 2.04 cr, Sat 3.69 cr, Sun 4.85 cr, Mon 1.25 cr, Tue 1.02 cr, Wed 1.06 cr, Thu 1.11 cr.

Golmaal Again is the fourth film in Rohit’s Golmaal franchise. The film stars Ajay, Parineeti Chopra, Arshad Warsi, Kunal Khemmu, Tabu, Tusshar Kapoor and Shreyas Talpade. Golmaal Again taps into the genre of horror comedy, something which has not been explored in India too much.
