This Diwali, Rohit Shetty returned with his popular comedy franchise, ‘Golmaal Again’. It was obviously the best Diwali gift for all the actors, Ajay Devgn, Tabu, Parineeti Chopra, Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor, Shreyas Talpade, Kunal Khemmu, Prakash Raj, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mukesh Tiwari, Sanjay Mishra, Johny Lever, Vrajesh Hirjee, and Ashwini Kalsekar who were featuring in the comedy series. Among various other comedy franchises, Rohit Shetty’s ‘Golmaal’ franchise remains popular among Bollywood audience. It has so far collected Rs 126.94 crore.
As ‘Secret Superstar’ is only touching the Rs 50 crore mark, the public superstar Ajay Devgn is happily raking in all the moolah. The festival of Diwali had been one of the factors that lead to the rise of the film. Festive seasons are the times when audience prefer to watch comedy, masala films with family over films with serious issues. Films with an element of comedy are preferred more during the time of festivals. The success of Varun Dhawan’s ‘Judwaa 2’ during the Dusshera, lies as another concrete example.
The success of ‘Golmaal Again’ was another major moment for Ajay Devgn and Parineeti Chopra who were earlier seen in ‘Baadshaho’ and ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’. Both the films have failed to shine at the box office. Ajay Devgn’s ‘Baadshaho’ had clashed with ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, back then as the latter performed better than the former.
