After a long dry spell, Bollywood’s business has been resurrected by Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. Despite cheap ticket prices, Anees Bazmee’s horror comedy, which stars Kartik Aaryan, Kiara Advani, Tabu, and Rajpal Yadav among others, had a strong debut at the box office.


On Saturday, film trade expert Taran Adarsh revealed that Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 had a “great” debut at the box office in India, grossing $14.11 crore. He also stated that the film has been Kartik Aaryan’s most successful opening weekend.

“#BhoolBhulaiyaa2 brings joy, offers hope, increases morale, revives biz,” Taran tweeted. Silences critics who wrote #Bollywood’s obituaries following a spate of disasters… amazing Day 1 despite *low ticket pricing*… #KartikAaryan’s biggest opener… Fri 14.11 cr. #India biz.”



Yash Raj Films’ Jayeshbhai Jordaar, starring Ranveer Singh, Ratna Pathak Shah, Boman Irani, and Shalini Pandey, was the most recent Bollywood release in theatres. Divyang Thakkar’s directorial debut barely made 3 crore net on its first day, equivalent to the opening day profits of recent flicks Attack, Jersey, Runway 34, and Heropanti 2.

Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 has also outperformed Bollywood’s last bonaf Gangubai Kathiawadi on its first day. After its February 25 release, the Sanjay Leela Bhansali film, starring Alia Bhatt, has grossed Rs. 10.50 crore.

Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is a stand-alone sequel to Priyadarshan’s successful 2007 horror comedy Bhool Bhulaiyaa, which stars Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Amisha Patel, and Shiney Ahuja in prominent roles. Rajpal Yadav, who played Chhote Pandit in the previous film, is the only original cast member who returns in the sequel.

“While there’s nothing in this sequel and the first part—except Manjulika—the background score and the song Ami Je Tomar repeatedly draw you back to the 2009 picture and you end yourself comparing,” writes the Hindustan Times in its review of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. Nonetheless, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is a new narrative that stands on its own.”
