Based on one of the most high-profile IT raids of the country, the film, which also stars Ileana D'Cruz, explores the struggle of an honest officer against corrupt goons.

While Baadshaho had collected Rs 12.60 crore on its opening day and Rs 15.60 crore on its second day, Golmaal Again had made a business of Rs 30.14 crore Friday, followed by Rs 28.37 crore Saturday.
