Ajay Devgan now has the biggest money spinner ever of his career which has spanned close to 2 decades. His GOLMAAL RETURNS has netted over 42 crores in it's first week (albeit a 9 days long) and the way this Rohit Shetty film is going ahead, it is not all set to be amongst the five top money spinners of all times.
When it comes to first week's collections, SINGH IS KINNG sits pretty at 44 crores while OM SHANTI OM follows next with 40 crores. RACE is a distant third at 35 crores. The film is now being replaced by GOLMAAL RETURNS for the third position since its first 7 day collections read 38 crores. This is simply fantastic considering the film is not an A+ project to begin with in spite of being a multi starrer and though it was expected to do well, collections to such high scale have surprised even those associated with it.
The film has gone well into the second week as well even though the shows have been reduced; rightly so since the biggest chunk of collections have already come in the first week. However, because of negligible competition from films like EMI and EK VIVAAK AISA BHI, it only has FASHION to compete with.
Though 60 crores seemed to be the earlier benchmark for GOLMAAL RETURNS, 70 crores now seems to be quite some possibility for this film. And if that happens, it would join the elite company of films like SINGH IS KINNG, LAGEY RAHO MUNNABHAI, WELCOME, OM SHANTI OM and DHOOM 2 that have achieved such numbers in the recent times.
No wonder, GOLMAAL 3 is all set to return bigger and even better!
