Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 box office: Kartik Aaryan's horror-comedy continues its dream run, mints Rs 92 crore in first week
The second week for the film is likely to be steady too, considering its strong performance on the weekdays. The film is expected to enter Rs 100 crore club in its second weekend.
Kartik Aaryan starrer Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is making big waves at the box office ever since it was released on May 20. The Anees Bazmee directorial opened to raving reviews and has been still going housefull in many theatres even after a week of release. As per early estimates, the film has crossed Rs 90 crore at the box office on day 7.
After becoming the biggest opener of the year with a collection of Rs 14.11 crore, the film continues its dream run at the box office. In its first weekend, the film crossed the 50 crore mark and has maintained its hold on the weekdays as well. On Monday, it minted Rs 10.75 crore, while on Tuesday, the collection turned out to be Rs 9.50 crore. However, the collection saw a little dip on Day 6 and Day 7 earning only Rs 8.25 crore and Rs 7.25 crore respectively. Overall, the movie has so far collected Rs 92 crore as per reports.
The second week for the film is likely to be steady too, considering its strong performance on the weekdays. However, it may face some competition in the coming week as Ayushmann Khurrana-led Anek and Tom Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick are releasing this Friday. However, the horror-comedy genre of Kartik’s film might continue to draw audiences to the cinema hall for the second consecutive week.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is the standalone sequel to the 2007 film Bhool Bhulaiyaa. Besides Kartik, the film also features Kiara Advani, Tabu, and Rajpal Yadav in prominent roles. In the next weekend, the film is likely to cross the Rs 100 crore mark at the box office, becoming the third movie to do so after Gangubai Kathiawadi and Sooryavanshi.
Meanwhile, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 has also come as a much-needed respite as it has ended Bollywood’s dry spell at the box office. The Hindi film industry had been struggling since the beginning of Covid-19 back in March 2020.
