Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s horror-comedy film ‘Bhoothnath Returns’ has got off to a decent start at the box office and managed to collect Rs 18.02 in three days of its release.

Even though the film made a slow start with a business of Rs 4.07 crore on the opening day, the film picked up over the weekend.

Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the business of ‘Bhoothnath Returns’. “ #BhoothnathReturns Fri 4.07 cr, Sat 5.85 cr, Sun 8.10 cr. Total: ₹ 18.02 cr nett. India biz… Excellent growth over the weekend,” he said.

‘Bhoothnath Returns’ received mixed reviews. The Indian Express reviewer Shubhra Gupta said, “it was neither funny nor serious enough: neither fully ghostly nor ghastly, but somewhere in between.”

‘Bhoothnath Returns’ is directed by Nitesh Tiwari and produced jointly by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Ravi Chopra and co-produced by Ajay kapoor. It is the sequel to 2008 film ‘Bhoothnath’ that also featured Amitabh Bachchan.

Apart from Amitabh Bachchan, the film also has Parth Bhalerao and Boman Irani.
