This week's new Bollywood release Bhoothnath Returns starring Megastar Amitabh Bachchan in the lead, started on a slow pace, but has made smooth rise over the weekend. The movie has topped the business chart with a decent collection at the Indian Box Office in three days.
In spite of being the only big release this Friday, Bhoothnath Returns failed to attract the expected crowd on its opening day. The film made a collection of Rs. 4.07 cr at the Indian Box Office on first Friday. However, as expected by the trade experts, the film made a steady increase in the business with its collection Rs. 5.85 cr on Saturday, taking its-two-day total to Rs. 9.92 cr net.
Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh predicted its Sunday business should be super and as expected, Bhoothnath Returns showed further improvement on Sunday. Today the trade expert tweeted, "#BhoothnathReturns Fri 4.07 cr, Sat 5.85 cr, Sun 8.10 cr. Total: Rs 18.02 cr nett. India biz... Excellent growth over the weekend."
Released in 1300+ screens across the country on April 11, Bhoothnath Returns has collected approximately Rs 18.02 crores nett at the Indian Box Office in the first weekend. The movie, which has been made on around Rs 35+ crores, has recovered 50% of its production cost in just three days.
Trade experts predict that Bhoothnath Returns is likely to collect Rs 10 crores in the domestic market on the weekdays. Well, it will be interesting to see how the film goes at the Box Office in the coming days as highly anticipated movie 2 States starring Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt will be released on April 18.
It is to be mentioned, Bhoothnath Returns having veteran actors like Amitabh Bachchan and Boman Irani has been mostly reviewed as a film with very fine performance by the actors but a little low in terms of the story line. Moreover, little star Parth Bhalerao also has been highly applauded for his bindass acting in Mumbaiya style. Bhoothnath Returns directed by Nitesh Tiwari is a horror comedy flick with maximum stress on the importance of voting.
