Kartik Aaryan's horror comedy Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 has brought relief to the Hindi Film Industry in terms of the box office collections. After a dry spell at the box office when it comes to Bollywood in the post-pandemic era, the Anees Bazmee directorial has brought back the audience to the theatres.

The Kartik Aaryan-starrer collected Rs 18.34 Crore on Saturday. The total two-day box office collection now stands at Rs 32.45 Crore.

Meanwhile, Kartik Aaryan is thrilled with the response to his latest release. He took to his Instagram handle to share the opening day numbers and captioned it as, "Thank you to the Audience for making our #BhoolBhulaiyaa2 Historical."
Kartik's co-star Kiara Advani in her recent chat with India Today, talked about the one thing she has learnt about him.
The news portal quoted her as saying, "One thing that I learnt about him is that during promotions, he doesn't eat at all. He doesn't sleep. He is consumed by putting the film out there. His whole mind is always on release and in promotion, which is lovely. But as a co-actor, while we were working on the film, I feel he is a very driven actor and I feel this is one space and one genre I see comes to him very naturally. Like when you talk about comedy or commercial comedy, I feel he has a flare for it and hopefully, the world will see it on 20th of May, but while working, I feel it translated very naturally on screen."
