Rohit Shetty has once again managed to struck gold at the box office with his recently released Golmaal Again which is the fourth instalment in the successful Golmaal franchise. The movie opened to packed houses across the country and has broken major records at the box office.

The big Diwali release has managed to pull in the audiences to the theatres despite having limited screens that it had to share with Aamir Khan's emotional drama Secret Superstar which released a day prior to its release. With an extended holiday period and a fantastic buzz around it, Golmaal Again has performed exceptionally well at the box office.

Here are the five major records that Golmaal Again broke in just two days of its release.

1. Second highest opening day collections of 2017 after Baahubali 2:

Golmaal Again zoomed up to the second position in the list of highest opening day movies of 2017 by earning Rs 30.14 crores on the first day of its release. It has beaten the opening day collections of Salman Khan's Tubelight, Shah Rukh Khan's Raees and Varun Dhawan's Judwaa 2 which minted Rs 21.15 crore, Rs 20.42 crore and Rs 16.10 crore respectively. Baahubali 2 was left unshaken from its numero uno position with the highest opening day collection of Rs 41.00 crore.
