Indra Kumar’s comic caper Total Dhamaal has turned out to be a huge money spinner at the box office. The movie features Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Riteish Deshmukh, Javed Jaffrey and Madhuri Dixit in key roles. After garnering the opening day figure of above 15 crores, the movie showed impressive growth over its weekend to post the highest weekend collections of the year so far.
With 62.40 crores coming in 3 days, Total Dhamaal has entered into the top weekend grossers of Ajay Devgn. Over the years, the actor has adapted well to the light-hearted genre and in fact, most of his highest grossing movies belong to the same genre. Total Dhamaal, despite mixed to poor reviews from critics, is enjoying decent word-of-mouth amongst the masses.
Speaking about Ajay Devgn’s highest weekend grosser, let’s take a look at his top 3 movies and weekend collections:
Being part of super-successful Golmaal franchise, Golmaal Again was high on pre-release buzz. The Diwali holidays further added to the momentum during the opening weekend. Golmaal Again accumulated a huge total of 87.60 crores in its first weekend. The movie stands as the highest weekend earner for Ajay Devgn.
Another Rohit Shetty directorial in the list and just like Golmaal Again, this one too enjoyed a huge pre-release buzz due to a sequel factor of a predecessor, Singham. Singham Returns took an extraordinary start on an auspicious occasion of Indian Independence day and raked in plenty during the weekend. The movie amassed a total of 77.55 crores in the opening weekend.
This multi-starrer action-thriller marked the reunion of director Milan Luthria, Ajay Devgn and Emraan Hashmi, after the cult Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai. Despite mixed reviews, Baadshaho minted a decent moolah of 43.30 crores in its opening weekend.
With 62.40 crores, Total Dhamaal has become the third highest weekend grosser for Ajay Devgn by replacing Baadshaho, and now all eyes are set on how it will fare during the weekdays.
