It was a fair start for the horror film Bhoot: Part 1 – The Haunted Ship especially when it faced lots of heat from the Ayushmann Khurrana’s Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan releasing on the same day. All thanks to the Mahashivratri holiday, which helped the film in a big way, otherwise it could have suffered a lot. The first-day box office collection was decent with the figure reaching 5.10 Crores and similar was the score on the second day as well giving 5.22 Crores.
The third day was not that impressive though, yet there are not many expectations from a horror film releasing the same day. The film on the third day scored around 6.25 Crores, which gave an okay figure at the box office. So, with these collections, the 1st-weekend box office collection for Bhoot: Part 1 – The Haunted Ship was around 16.87 Crores, which is still a fair range of money it bagged on the first weekend.
The weekdays are expected to hold rock steady with similar collection to carry out that would help the movie to collect around 30 to 35 Crores in the first week. It was a maiden horror film for both Vicky Kaushal and Karan Johar to produce this genre movie under his banner Dharma Productions. This franchise will have more installments, maybe K Jo is willing to establish his brand in this genre as well. But it seems it will take some time, well, let’s see what goes next. Meanwhile, you stay tuned with us as we bring more on this and other films only for you.
