This Diwali weekend three big releases – Ajay Devgn‘s Golmaal Again, Aamir Khan’s Secret Superstar and Thalapathy Vijay’s Mersal hit the silver screens. While each film had different genres and catered to different audiences, a box office clash was on. And looks like we have an undisputed WINNER! Golmaal Again has beaten Mersal and Secret Superstar hands down at the pan-India box office on day one. As industry tracker and trade analyst – Ramesh Bala revealed on Twitter, “#Diwali2017 Day 1 India Nett collections: 1. #GolmaalAgain – Rs 30.14 crore, 2. #Mersal – Rs 23.75 crore, 3. #SecretSuperstar – Rs 4.80 crore.”
Golmaal Again released on the day after Diwali (October 20), which is the biggest day for any film. On the other hand, Mersal released on October 18 (Choti Diwali day) and Secret Superstar hit the screens on October 19 (Diwali day), during which people are generally busy with the festivities. So this might have given Golmaal Again an advantage and a bigger day one collection, while it might have played spoil sport for Mersal and Secret Superstar. But if you see the collections of these other two movies on the day after Diwali too, Golmaal Again has outperformed them. Anyway, which film out of these three did you guys like the most?
