On Saturday, Bhediya experienced a substantial boost, raking in Rs. 3.70 crores. While not optimal given the merits and scale, the film is at least fighting it out by bringing in over Rs. 3 crores every day since its first Monday (with the exception of the second Friday, when it dipped to Rs. 1.95 crores), and while that’s not optimal given the merits and scale, it’s at least there in circulation, unlike many other biggies that just give up when they don’t open well.
In the case of Bhediya, the increase from Friday to Saturday is good, and maybe even greater figures will be reported on Sunday as well. It would be significant if the revenues approached the Rs. 5 crore threshold. So far, the Varun Dhawan-led monster comedy has earned Rs. 47.71 crores, and while Rs. 50 crores will be achieved today, the Rs. 52 crores mark will be exceeded, setting the path for the Rs. 60 crores milestone to be surpassed by the end of the second week.
An Action Hero, on the other hand, fared better on Saturday. The film grossed Rs. 2.16 crores, a significant increase over the previous day’s gross of Rs. 1.31 crores. In terms of absolute figures, the film starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Jaideep Ahlawat still has a lot of work to do. However, it has expanded relatively speaking during Saturday, and now one waits to see if there is a similar type of growth on Sunday as well. An Action Hero has a challenge ahead of him with Drishyam 2 on one side and Bhediya on the other.
Drishyam 2 earned Rs. 8.45 crore at the domestic box office on Saturday, a 100 percent increase from its Friday take of Rs. 4.45 crore. The total amount collected is now Rs. 176.38 crore.
