Box office: Ajay Devgn without Rohit Shetty

A couple of days back, a forum member of Indicine, published a post on the box office performance of Ajay Devgn films without director Rohit Shetty in the last 5 years.

Rohit has directed Ajay in 5 films in the last 5 years and all of them have been successful at the box office – Golmaal, Golmaal Returns, Golmaal 3, All The Best, Singham and Bol Bachchan. Only one film, Sunday, was an average grosser.

Ajay Devgn - Rohit Shetty

Without Shetty at the helm, Ajay’s success ratio is poor. Have a look.

  • Cash (2007) – 18.33 crs FLOP
  • Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag (2007) – 8.5 crs FLOP
  • Halla Bol (2008) – 14.61 crs FLOP
  • U Me Aur Hum (2008) – 22.69 crs BELOW AVERAGE
  • Mehbooba (2008) – 2.48 crs FLOP

With less than 10 days to go for his ambitious Diwali release Son Of Sardaar, the big question in the trade – can Ajay Devgn deliver without Rohit Shetty?



  • @lil wayne: SEE MY ARTICLE ABOVE who YRF playing game with SOS it’s really bad for industry isn’t it?

  • @Aakash,you said in your comments that Khattameetha was a disaster,then according to your theory Mangal Pandey the rising was also a disaster. Then about Salman, in 2008 the lifetime collections of his 4 films could not even touch 20 crores,when Emraan Hashmi’s Jannat grossed more than 30 crores in India.
