Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 Box Office Collection
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 has the potential to bring the box office back into the life, as the film has received rave reviews, amazing advances, over 3k screens, Bhool Bhulaiyaa brand, and hit music which could be a major factor to pull the audience towards cinema halls. Kartik starrer has more demand in the mass market.
As per the early estimation, it will collect in the range of Rs 8 to Rs 10 Crore, though going by the advance collections, the film could collect more than Rs 10 Cr.
It will all depend on the walk-in audience, which is most probable that they will come as the film caters to the family audience, and also makers have reduced the ticket pricing. So we can say the film has a very good chance to collect over Rs 10 Cr, in fact, it could become the Kartik Aryan’s career’s highest opening day grosser film.
