‘Bhul Bhulaiya 2’ has managed to beat Tuesday’s collection of ‘Gangubai Kathiawari’ starring Alia Bhatt, which earned Rs 9.3 crore due to the Mahashivratri holiday. According to the current positive trend, by the end of the first week, ‘Bhul Bhulaiya 2’ is expected to raise a total of Rs 91 crore. Despite the good response, this horror entertainer may be less than the desired number of 100 crores in the first week.
‘Bhul Bhulaiya 2’ takes the franchise forward which started in 2007 with ‘Bhul Bhulaiya’ starring Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan. Speaking about the inevitable comparison with the first part, director Anis Bajmi told BT, “When I started my journey with Mistake 2, I knew I was leading it from a great team. It was a cult film. People still remember a character like Manjulika. I had to take a computational risk, take some old material and introduce something new. But in the end the comparison is toh honi hai. There is no exemption from this so let people compare.
