This Diwali, get set for Golmaal Again. The fourth installment of the Golmaal franchise is all set to light up your festivities. Ajay Devgn’s mega-franchise will release just a day after the release of Aamir Khan’s Secret Superstar. But both stars are confident of their films there seems to be no clash at the box office. Ajay has a good record of multiple releases in the past, with Shah Rukh Khan for Jab Tak Hai Jaan in 2012 alongside Son of Sardaar and then in 2016 with Karan Johar for Ae Dil Hai Mushkil which was released with Shivaay. The two superstars even met recently and took to Twitter to share proof of their friendship.

Both films, Golmaal Again and Secret Superstar, belong to different genres but the release strategy for Secret Superstar gives their camaraderie an interesting twist. Mr. Perfectionist has screened his film before critics three days prior to its release. The move is seen as a sign of confidence on the part of Khan that his film will be a guaranteed success. Here a look at what critics have to say about the film.

Box-office clashes don’t always turn out to be the bad thing. Rohit Shetty has followed the pattern consistently with most of his films seeing a Diwali release. Shetty’s first Diwali release, the second edition of the Golmaal franchise, Golmaal Returns was in 2008. The film made on a budget of Rs 35 crore, raked Rs 83 crore. His second Diwali release ‘All The Best: Fun Begins’ in 2009, also saw decent returns at the box-office. Made on a budget of Rs 41 crore the film raked in Rs 67 crore worldwide. His third release from the Golmaal Franchise, Golmaal 3 also saw a Diwali release in 2010 and turned out to be a cracker of a movie. Made on a budget of Rs 40 crore, the film brought home Rs 170 crore worldwide.
After a gap of 7 years, Rohit Shetty and his Golmaal gang are back this Diwali with another big release. The jury is still out on whether this one will brighten up the festivities.
