If its Box Office performance remains steady, it is expected to emerge as Ajay Devgn’s third highest grosser of all time, beating Golmaal 3 at the Box Office.

Earlier, commenting on critics usually calling films like Total Dhamaal ‘brainless’, Ajay told PTI, “I don’t know why they say it is brainless. It is not easy to make people laugh. Today in our country or all over the world, comedians are the biggest stars. Like here in India, we have Kapil Sharma. It needs intelligence to make people laugh, you just can’t make faces and make people laugh.”
