The box office for Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani’s recent film Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 was around 54-55 crore in its first weekend. Tabu, Rajpal Yadav, and Sanjay Mishra also star in the film.
Kartik Aaryan, Kiara Advani, and Tabu feature in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, which had a successful debut weekend at the box office. Following a strong opening of 14 crore on Friday, the film had tremendous growth throughout the weekend. The film surpassed 50 crore in three days after receiving a terrific reaction at the box office on Sunday.
According to early estimates from Boxofficeindia.com, the film made approximately 22-23 crore on Sunday. This brings the domestic box office total at 54-55 crore. “The biggest surprise for the film is West Bengal,” according to the portal, “as this circuit is not fond on comedies, and Kartik Aaryan films have also done less here,” but “this film is really strong, perhaps due to the horror component and native people and language employed in the film.”
Kartik went to the Gaiety theatres in Mumbai on Sunday to see his flick, but the theatre was packed. He expressed his joy on Instagram, saying that he had been unable to obtain a ticket for himself. The film earned moderate to mixed reviews and a positive reception in theatres.
“The Anees Bazmee film does encourage similarities with the original but manages to hold its ground, aided by good performances from Kartik Aaryan, Kiara Advani, and Tabu,” according to News Door24’s review.
On Friday, Sidharth Malhotra, Kiara’s rumoured boyfriend, applauded the film on Instagram. He wrote, “Laughter, thrills, and amusement abound in #BhoolBhulaiyaa2. @Kiaraaliaadvani @aneezbazmee @kartikaaryan @muradkhetani and the team deserve kudos and best wishes. Kill it.”
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is a standalone sequel to Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan’s 2007 smash, Bhool Bhulaiyaa, directed by Anees Bazmee and written by Aakash Kaushik and Farhad Samji.
