Last week, Golmaal Again crossed the Rs 200 crore mark globally, thus becoming the highest Bollywood grosser of this year after the dubbed version of SS Rajamouli's war epic Baahubali 2: The Conclusion. Golmaal Again, in the process, surpassed the collection of David Dhawan's comedy Judwaa 2.

Now, trade analyst Taran Adarsh has tweeted that Golmaal Again is inching towards the Rs 200 crore mark domestically as well. It has raked in Rs 153.94 crore in the first nine days since its release on 20 October.

On the other hand, Mersal, which crossed the Rs 200 crore mark globally much before Golmaal Again did, is minting money at the USA box office. Adarsh tweeted that Vijay's film crossed the $1.5 million mark at the USA box office.

Thus, it has become only the fourth south Indian film to cross the $1.5 million mark and the 11th film to cross the $1 million mark, as reported by The Indian Express. The same report states that Pa Ranjith's 2016 Tamil gangster drama Kabali stays put at the top of the USA box office.
