By India Today Web Desk: Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon’s horror-comedy Bhediya hit the screens on November 25. Seeing Varun turn into a werewolf had the audience’s interest piqued, however, its box office numbers are just decent. According to reports, on Day 2, Bhediya’s collection in India were up by 35-40 per cent as it collected in the range of Rs 9.25-9.50 crore. This brings the two-day nett to Rs 17 crore. Bhediya is competing with Ajay Devgn’s Drishyam 2.


Kriti Sanon and Varun Dhawan’s werewolf drama Bhediya is directed by Amar Kaushik, who brought the horror-comedy genre back with Stree (2018). While Stree wrecked havoc at the box office, Bhediya’s numbers don’t look too promising yet. It opened with just decent numbers on Day 1. It raised over Rs 12 crore in gross box office collection worldwide on its opening day.

For the second day, Box Office India stated, “Bhediya (Hindi) has decent growth on Saturday of around 35-40% as it collected in the 9.25-9.50 crore nett range. It probably needed higher growth on Saturday due to the low first day but this 35-40% is decent and keeps the film in the race if Sunday can show a good jump. The two-day collections of the film will be 15.50-15.75 crore nett which remains low but after the opening, it is really about making ground post the weekend.”

Talking about the poor quality of Bhediya’s VFX, BOI wrote, “The film is also released in 3D so this should have also helped the bigger centres but the response to 3D is also poor. Bhediya also seems to be set in the North East which takes away a lot of relatability compared to a rural film set in the heartland. Obviously, this is done for fresher locales and a more a picturesque look for the film but the characters become less relatable for the core audience.”


Bhediya is a comedy horror film directed by Amar Kaushik and produced by Dinesh Vijan. The film stars Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon in the lead roles. This is Kriti’s second film with Varun after Dilwale (2015). Bhediya is actually the third installment in Vijan’s horror-comedy universe. It hit the theatres on November 25. Set in Arunachal Pradesh, the storyline of Bhediya follows a young man named Bhaskar who gets bitten by a wolf in the forest. Eventually, he starts transforming into a werewolf too. The music of the film is composed by Sachin-Jigar while the lyrics are written by Amitabh Bhattacharya.
