Ajay Devgn’s Golmaal Again has taken the biggest opening of the year from Bollywood in terms of occupancy. There is Bahubali 2 which still tops the chart but it was an original Telugu film.
The film has easily beaten the big films like Raees and Dangal. There is a big holiday of Diwali which has boosted the business. Though the screens are less than Dangal and in the same range as Raees.
2017 was turning out to be a dull year as far the initial was concerned. But Golmaal Again will be some relief for the trade. The film also suffered due to late advance otherwise opening could have been higher.
