Family entertainer ‘Total Dhamaal’, after entertaining audiences in the box office, created history on television too. Its World Television Premiere on Star Gold on May 12 smashed all viewership records with an unprecedented 17.3 million impressions (2+ India U+R, Wk 20, 2019), making it the most-watched movie premiere of 2019.

It was one of the biggest films of 2019 and with its stupendous success on television, we yet again reinforce our brand promise of being the ‘home of Bollywood blockbusters’. The response is a validation of the content and marketing strategy.”
Overwhelmed by the response, Total Dhamaal, director Indra Kumar said, “Total Dhamaal has been a dream come true, first with its box office success and now with a blockbuster premiere on Star Gold.”

“A big thank you to our viewers and to Star Gold for making Total Dhamaal the No. 1 TV premiere of the year! There is nothing that an actor wishes for more than love from his fans and I am so humbled that they are giving this film so much of it,” said actor Anil Kapoor.
Actor Riteish Deshmukh said, “The making of this film was ‘Total Dhamaal’ for the entire cast! I am glad this translated so well on TV, making it a ‘total success’ with its premiere on Star Gold!”
