The box office success of Bhediya is going to be very important for Bollywood to get back in the game after Drishyam 2. After the film starring Ajay Devgan soaked the tears As for the exhibitors, they certainly had an eye on Varun Dhawan and ‘Stree’ director Amar Kaushik coming together as it is a combo that could guarantee a sure shot success in the pre-Covid era. What has changed?
Bollywood filmmakers giving one bad movie after another is not the only problem that turned things around, the par excellence of many South Indian movies like Pushpa, Vikram, RRR, and Kantara also turned things around for B-Town. There has been one more reason.
Bhediya’s box office opening day collection certainly won’t be as much as one would have guessed after watching its teaser and trailer. Ajay Devgn’s ‘Drishyam 2’ storm has also been a major factor, which works against the huge numbers of the Varun Dhawan starrer.
When the trailer of Bhediya was released, many expected it to take a double digit opening for sure, but achieving that became an uphill task as the release date neared. According to early trends, the Varun Dhawan earned in the range of Starr 7-9 crores First day box office.
Earlier trade pundits had predicted that the film may revolve 11-13 core Day one but Drishyam 2 changed the game and made the audience extremely wary of going back to the cinema halls for an uncertain project. Depending on the public response, it might pick up over the weekend which might be better at the Plex as single screens would still love Drishyam 2.
