Bhediya Box Office Day 1

Varun Dhawan-Kriti Sanon starrer Bhediya has opened with rave reviews from critics. The film is directed by Bala, Stree director Amar Kaushik and marks the 3rd film in Dinesh Vijan’s horror-comedy universe after Stree and Roohi.

Bhediya locks horns with Ajay Devgn’s Drishyam 2, the latter is performing very well at the box office and has recently crossed the 100 Cr mark, domestically. It is remained to be seen whether Varun’s film managed to perform in front of Ajay starrer or not.

Bhediya Advance Bookings Report

The film has clocked in 1.7 Cr from the pre-sales for the opening day, it sold overall 64k tickets in Hindi and Telugu in 2D and 3D formats. It is very less than Varun’s last release Jugjugg Jeeyo which sold tickets worth 5.3 Cr and opened with over 9.5 Cr at the box office but positive reviews succeeded to bring audiences in eve shows and spot booking.

Bhediya Screen Counts and Budget

Varun’s Bhediya has received a good response through its trailer and considering the advance bookings, music also receiving great response all over. The film opens with Rs 7.48 Cr which is low according expectation and WOM.

It seemed Ajay starrer has dampened the performance of the Varun starrer. The target audience of the flick is the youth and the family, if it succeeds to hit the right chord, it could grow in the coming days due to word of mouth.

And we can’t neglect the power of WOM after The Kashmir Files, Kantara, Sita Ramam, 777Charlie, Karthikeya 2, and Rocketry, these are mid-low budget films still made big at the box office due to genuine audience word of mouth.
