The Rohit Shetty Ajay Devgan comedy Golmaal Again will reach another major milestone in its stellar Indian theatrical run when it crosses the vaunted ₹200 crore $30.8 million domestic box office threshold this weekend.
The picture will likely accomplish this feat on Friday its 22nd day of release. That will put the film the fourth in the record-shattering Golmaal franchise at 17th place in the rankings of all-time highest global grossers from India.
By the end of the weekend, it will also surpass the 202 crore lifetime domestic record of 3 Idiots the first Indian film ever to reach 200 crore at home—to make it the eighth biggest domestic earner in Bollywood history.

It is not, however the year’s biggest Hindi-language release; that title belongs to the Hindi-dubbed version of Baahubali: The Conclusion, which cleared ₹510 crore/$78 million as a chunk of the staggering total of nearly ₹1,400 crore/$215 million it earned domestically across all its multiple language versions
