Trade pundits have been saying that Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is the most crucial film for the Bollywood industry, as the industry has been trying to revive back after the failures of biggies.
Post The Kashmir Files, the Hindi cinema hasn’t seen any success, the big starrer film’s John’s Attack, Shahid’s Jersey, Akki’s Bachchan Pandey, and Ajay’s Runway 34 all have failed big at the box office. Amid this Bollywood is seeing a ray of hope in Bhool Bhulaiyaa2.
And seems like it stands up to the expectations, as the film has seen the amazing advanced bookings of Rs 7 Cr nett, which is the fourth highest post-pandemic. After KGF2’s (Rs 43 Cr), ’83 the film (Rs 8.5 Cr), and RRR (Hindi)- Rs 8.25 Cr. Kartik starrer surpassed the advanced collection of Akshay’s superhit film Sooryavanshi (Rs 4 Cr).
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 faces a clash with Kangana’s Dhaakad and seems like, there will be no effect of the latter on the BO collections of the Kartik starrer. As Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is released on 3200 screens in the domestic market only, which is far more than Dhaakad’s 2000+ screens. Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is releasing worldwide on 3829 screens. overseas release 629 screens.
Box Office Collection
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 has the potential to bring the box office back into the life, as the film has received rave reviews, amazing advances, over 3k screens, Bhool Bhulaiyaa brand, hit music, and Kartik and Kiara’s popularity among youth which could be a major factor to pull the audience towards cinema halls. Kartik starrer has more demand in the mass market.
As per the early reports, it has accumulated in the range of Rs 14 to Rs 15 Cr, fruther the final collections will all depend on how much the film had raked in from the single screen and nonnational chains.
