The duo of Ajay Devgn and Rohit Shetty previously had 5 of their films namely Golmaal Returns, All The Best, Golmaal 3, Golmaal Again, and Sooryavanshi release over the Diwali weekend and all of them were successful at the box office. Every film has a memorable story to tell, 

Here's How Rohit Shetty's Films Have Performed On Diwali

Golmaal Returns: Golmaal Returns in 2008 was the 5th biggest Bollywood opener of all time. The film, despite getting a mixed response from the audience, emerged a hit at the box office and netted over Rs 50 crores in India.

All The Best: All The Best released alongside the biggest budget Hindi film then, Blue. Despite taking a slow start, it picked up over the Diwali holidays due to positive word of mouth and ended up netting over Rs 40 crores in India.

Golmaal 3: Golmaal 3 was the first blockbuster of the Golmaal franchise and it was also the first Golmaal film to enter the Rs 100 crore club. Golmaal 3 started Rohit Shetty's Rs 100 crore film streak and it continued until Sooryavanshi.

Golmaal Again: Golmaal Again in 2017 opened to bumper houses despite clash with Secret Superstar. It netted over Rs 200 crores in its lifetime and proved how much the audiences love the Golmaal franchise. That's not all, it also shattered records on television.

Sooryavanshi: Sooryavanshi, which had Ajay Devgn in an extended appearance, almost netted Rs 200 crores in India with 50 percent permitted occupancies, in 2021. It was with Sooryavanshi's strong box office performance that filmmakers got the courage to release their film in theatres. Prior to Sooryavanshi's release, many filmmakers thought that sending their film for digital streaming was the best possible option.

The year of 2024 has already had many open weeks where any significant film could release. In the weeks to come too, there will be weeks with no new releases.
