Bhediya has finally hit double digits. The Varun Dhawan-led creature comedy, after two relatively low-key days, managed to record good growth at the box office.
According to Taran Adarsh, the film clocked Rs 11.50 cr on Sunday, taking its three-day total to Rs 28.55 crore net. The trade analyst took to Twitter and wrote that the collections of Bhediya are “decent” and noted how it was affected by Drishyam 2 wave. The Ajay Devgn starrer thriller in its second weekend collected more than Rs 38 cr.
“#Bhediya posts a DECENT TOTAL in its opening weekend… Witnesses growth on Day 3… However, #D2 wave has affected its #BO earnings… Needs to have a strong run on weekdays to consolidate its status… Fri 7.48 cr, Sat 9.57 cr, Sun 11.50 cr. Total: ₹ 28.55 cr. #India biz,” he tweeted.
According to a report in Box Office India, the Amar Kaushik directorial, also starring Kriti Sanon, showed good growth in mass pockets on Sunday but”these places had to jump 50% plus” due to low numbers on the first two days.
While a growth like that is possible on Sunday in mass circuits, Bhediya recorded a growth of 25-30% which was “good but not good enough,” the report further read.
All eyes are now on Bhediya, as the team and trade await the crucial Monday test to see how the film fares and where it will eventually land in the long run.
This was Varun Dhawan’s second film this year after Jug Jugg Jeeyo, which was a moderate success at the box office after it netted approximately Rs 85 cr at the domestic box office.
