Box Office revived as Kartik Aaryan’s Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 took on Kangana Ranaut’s Dhaakad which was extremely poor at the ticket window.
Remake of a Malayalam cinema, Manichitrathazhu, the Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Paresh Rawal and Ameesha Patel starrer Bhool Bhulaiya was a run away hit with admiring performances, chart bursting songs and entertainment, minting Rs 50 crore against a budget of Rs 32 crore. The makers roped in Kartik Aaryan for the sequel along Kiara Advani and Tabu and seems they have done good work since Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 had turned out to be big surprise at the box office.
The chemistry between Karthik and Kiara looks mesmerizing and Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 has received good reviews from the audience. The comedy drama had opened to excellent response in the morning shows while the collections escalated towards evening and night shows, bringing the first day total to Rs 14.10 crore followed by a solid growth on Saturday with Rs 18.34 crore while Sunday was even better with somewhere between Rs 22-24 crore, bringing the first weekend total to around Rs 55-56 crore.
With such a fabulous opening, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is now the highest opening film weekend of 2022 in Hindi language and Kartik Aaryan’s career. Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is also the 4th highest opening weekend film of 2022 after KGF 2, RRR and Bachchan Paandey. Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 has been made on an overall budget of Rs 75 Crores including promotions
While much was expected from Kangana Ranaut, who was last seen in the powerful drama Thailavi, Dhaakad turned out to be a big disappointment on its first day at the box office. With early user reviews being decent to average, Dhaakad opened to a dull response in the morning shows across India.
