On Friday, Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon's horror-comedy Bhediya made its theatrical debut. It aggressively battled with Drishyam 2 by Ajay Devgn. It appears that Bhediya has been impacted by Drishyam 2's success, despite what industry experts had predicted. The movie by director Amar Kaushik had a lackluster opening weekend at the box office, failing to break the double digit mark.
Bhediya Box Office Collection
The movie made between Rs. 7.48 crore on its opening day. PVR, INOX, and Cinepolis, the three biggest national theatre chains, were responsible for Rs 3.58 crore of the first day's takings. The movie was selectively released in Tamil and Telugu versions as well as in 3D as a special attraction, which helped the box office a little bit more. Now that Saturday has arrived, the movie needs to earn twice as much as it did on Friday in order to be successful. On the other hand, Drishyam 2 has generated close to Rs 105 crore in its first week of release.
Collections for the morning and afternoon shows have already improved, therefore a Day 2 of 10 crores is anticipated. This Amar Kaushik-directed movie needs to maintain its pace for the entire weekend in order to make as close to 30 crores as feasible. After that, weekday foot traffic must also be high in order to acquire a good lifetime number. The movie's global box office receipts are 12.06 crores.
Bhediya may do better over the weekend given the positive reviews the movie has gotten from critics. But if that doesn't happen, Bhediya might end up on the list of major Bollywood flops of 2022 along with movies like Laal Singh Chaddha, Shamshera, Raksha Bandhan, and several others.
Varun portrays a werewolf in Bhediya, and Kriti Sanon plays a psychiatrist. Paalin Kabak and Abhishek Banerjee also play important roles in the movie.
