Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 Box Office Collections: Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani’s film has garnered a massive audience in the theatres. Even after fourteen days after its release on May 20, the horror comedy continues to invite moviegoers and excel at the box office. Helmed by Anees Bazmee, the film faced several releases throughout its run on the bog screen including Kangana Ranaut’s action film Dhaakad, Ayushmann Khurrana’s Anek and Tom Cruise’s Top Gun Maverick. Still, it did not lose grip amid the viewers. Surpassing the record lifetime business of Alia Bhatt starrer ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ and Sooryavanshi, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 has emerged victorious at the box office. After successfully crossing Rs 150 crores collection on the global front, the film is now heading to enter the Rs 150 crores club in India. According to the reports of Box Office India, “Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 did excellent business in the second week as it grossed 47 crore nett apprx taking its two week total to 138 crore nett. The drop from the first week is 48% which is fantastic. Sooryavanshi had collected 45.60 crore nett in the first week and Gangubahi kathiawadi was 34.64 crore nett.”
If the film continues its trend at the box office then it is expected to become the fourth highest-grossing comedy film after Housefull 4, Golmaal Again and Good Newwz. “The lifetime business of the film depends on where the film lands up on the third Friday but it should be able to go upwards of 160 crore nett on a worst-case scenario. The biggest comedy grossers ever are Housefull 4 and Golmaal Again at 200 crore nett plus and although those numbers are out of reach it will become the fourth highest grossing comedy film after Housefull 4, Golmaal Again and Good Newwz. The genre has only four films above the 150 crore nett mark and Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 will be fifth,” as per BOI reports.
