The Rajkummar Rao and Kriti Kharbanda starrer Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana raked in a total of Rs 7.46 crore, according to another Indian Express report, making the romantic comedy follow closely in the footstep's of Irrfan's film. Directed by Ratnaa Sinha, this movie is Rajkummar Rao's 5th film of the year after Trapped, Newton (India's official entry to the Academy Awards this year), Bareilly Ki Barfi and Behen Hogi Teri.

Sidharth Malhotra-Sonakshi Sinha starrer Ittefaq also maintained its steady standing at the box-office, collecting a total of Rs 27.4 crore by the end of the first week since its release, according to trade analyst Taran Adarsh.

Golmaal Again however, remains the ultimate blockbuster, having entered the Rs 200 crore club this week. The Rohit Shetty-directed multi ensemble cast film starring Ajay Devgn, Parineeti Chopra, Tabu, Arshad Warsi, Shreyas Talpade and Tusshar Kapoor in lead roles released on 20 October and got the boost that it needed owing to the fact that it was the Diwali weekend (19 October). In its 24th day, the film has become one of the biggest movies from Bollywood in 2017, and is the first film of Devgn, and second of Shetty to enter the Rs 200 crore club, according to Adarsh.
