Despite mostly favourable reviews, actor Varun Dhawan’s latest feature Bhediya isn’t clocking the numbers it was expected to. The creature comedy opened to an underwhelming Rs 7.48 cr. all India net on Friday.

On its second day, when many in the trade expected the Amar Kaushik directorial to show a major jump, the film showed decent improvement with collections and earned Rs 9.57 cr, bringing its total collection to Rs 17.05 crore.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the figures, “#Bhediya gathers speed on Day 2… Slowly and steadily, the film is finding its share of audience… National chains witness an upward trend, while mass pockets improve… Day 3 crucial, needs to show big gains… Fri 7.48 cr, Sat 9.57 cr. Total: ₹ 17.05 cr. #India biz.”

Bhediya, also starring Kriti Sanon, needed better growth to make up for the lukewarm opening, but the film is now eyeing to go higher with its Sunday collections.

According to Taran Adarsh, Bhediya showed almost 43% jump in the national chains as its Saturday collections clocked better numbers.

While Bhediya showed decent growth, Drishyam 2 continued its extraordinary run even in its second weekend, with collections in the range of Rs 14 crore net, taking its total to almost Rs 125 crore net.
