Golmaal Again has emerged the highest grossing comedy film of all time by a distance beating the numbers of Ready in 2011. Even if you go by inflation adjusted figures then Biwi No.1 in 1999 was the highest grossing film with around 183 crore as per 2016 ticket rates and considering GROSS ticket rates have hardly gone up this year then Golmaal Again will be more than Biwi No.1 on 2017 ticket rates. This is nt counting films released befoe 1994.
There have been seven comedy films which have crossed 100 crore. There are some films like a Judwaa 2 which can be put into the comedy genre but a film like Judwaa 2 tilts towards the masala film genre. Golmaal Again is possibly the biggest comedy film of all time in terms of inflation adjusted figures as well. The only films that can be ahead of it are Aankhen (1993) and Namak Halaal (1982) both possibly looking at 250 crore or even 300 crore adjusted nett figures. But again like Judwaa 2 these two probably tilt towards the masala genre. The top nett grossing comedy films films of all time are as follows.
