Ajay Devgn and Tabu thriller Drishyam 2 is on a roll, as it minted Rs 4.68 crore on Wednesday, taking its total closer to the Rs 160 cr mark. It has earned an impressive Rs 159.17 crore till now. The film is expected to improve its earning over the weekend.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the latest box office figures of the Abhishek Pathak directorial and tweeted, “#Drishyam2 continues to set the cash registers ringing… Note the solid hold on weekdays, this movie is simply unstoppable… [Week 2] Fri 7.87 cr, Sat 14.05 cr, Sun 17.32 cr, Mon 5.44 cr, Tue 5.15 cr, Wed 4.68 cr. Total: ₹ 159.17 cr. #India biz.”
The film, which released almost two weeks ago, on November 18 in cinemas, is giving some serious competition to the newly released Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon horror-comedy Bhediya. The horror comedy has earned around the figure of Rs 3 crore on Wednesday, taking its total to Rs 39 crore approximately, reported India Today. The movie suffered from a low Monday, but seems to have gotten back on track as it’s now performing in a more steady manner.
The Amar Kaushik movie is now aiming to join the Rs 50 crore club, but with Ayushmann Khurrana’s An Action Hero releasing this Friday, Bhediya will have to fend off not one, but two rivals at the ticket counters.
Both Bhediya and Drishyam 2 received a largely positive response from critics, with The Indian Express’ film critic Shubhra Gupta giving the former three star-rating, while Shalini Langer also bestowed three stars to Tabu thriller. The stars of both the movies, Ajay Devgn and Varun Dhawan, also congratulated each other upon learning that their films are performing well at the box office. In a new interview with indianexpress.com, Varun likened Devgn to Dhoni and said the actor was one of the first people who had called him after he got his first flop.
