Bhoot — Part One: The Haunted Ship's domestic box office collection stands at 10.62 cr on Day 2
Bhoot — Part One: The Haunted Ship is directed by Bhanu Pratap Singh and also stars Bhumi Pednekar and Ashutosh Rana in key roles.
Vicky Kaushal's new release Bhoot— Part One: The Haunted Ship has made Rs 10.62 crore in its two day run at the domestic box office. The film, which released alongside Ayushmann Khurrana's comedy Shubh Mangal Zyada Savdhaan, raked in Rs 5.10 crore on its opening day.
Trade analysts note that the horror flick's revenue only increased by a small margin on its second day of release. They further write that it has performed decently in mass circuits but needs to pick up pace in key metropolitan cities.
Box Office India says that due to Bhoot's horror genre it may not be the audience's first choice as compared to a comedy or a film with a social message. Growth in Day 3 earnings is expected, but it may not be bigger than Saturday's figures.
Meanwhile, Bhoot's competitor, Shubh Mangal Zyada Savdhaan, has made Rs 20.63 crore in two days.
Here are the latest box office figures
#Bhoot witnesses limited growth on Day 2... Decent in mass circuits, but lacks the spark at key metros... Day 3 is pivotal, needs to recover lost ground to post a respectable total... Eyes ₹ 16 cr [+/-] weekend... Fri 5.10 cr, Sat 5.52 cr. Total: ₹ 10.62 cr. #India biz.
