Bollywood seems to be coming out of the addiction to RRR and KGF 2. Two big Bollywood movies opened in theaters on Friday. Karthik Aryan’s horror comedy Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and Kangana Ranaut’s action animator Dhaakad. However, in the box office figures to come, Karthik Aryan appears to be turning twenty and has trampled Dhakad in the first blow. The trampling is also so serious that the commercial circle of the cinema would not have even imagined it.

Business analyst Taran Adarsh shared the box office figures. He said that Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 had a grand opening with Rs 14.11 crore on the first day. This is the biggest Bollywood opening this year. It is curious that this opening is not festive. Earlier this year, Akshay Kumar’s Bachchan Pandey pulled off this feat. Although 13.25 million rupees were earned on the Holi holiday. Alia Bhatt’s Gangubai Kathiawadi was at number three in terms of highest opening day. The film earned Rs 10.50 crore.
Dhakad and Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 have been released together.
How is the opening of Dhakad
Box office figures for Kangana Ranaut’s Dhaakad are unclear. Taran Adarsh did not share any statistics. However, business analyst Ramesh Bala has estimated that Dhakad has earned only Rs 50 lakh on the first day at the box office. There is room for it to be better in the official figures. But the question is how much better it will be able to do than the estimated figures. Clearly, the projected figures of the film, directed by Rajneesh Ghai and starring Kangana Ranaut, Arjun Rampal, Divya Dutta and Shashwat Chatterjee, are enough to say that Kangana’s performance is greatly overshadowed by Karthik’s film.
Dhaakad’s distribution and presentation strategy is similar to that of his previous film Thalaivi.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is directed by Anees Bazmee. Apart from Karthik, Kiara Advani, Tabu, Sanjay Mishra and Rajpal Yadav have major roles in the film. This is a horror comedy drama. Akshay Kumar Vidya Balan and Rajpal Yadav were seen in its first part. The first part was also a great success. Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 proved that Kartik is the new king of Bollywood.
Karthik has also achieved the biggest opening of his career through this film. Before Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, his top-grossing first-day films include I Love Aaj Kal (12.40 crores) in 2020, Pati Patni Aur Woh (9.10 crores) in 2019, Luka Chuppi (8.01 crores) and in 2015 I Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 (6.80 crores) is included. Before this, one of his movies also came in the year 2021: Dhamaka. Although his film was released directly on the OTT platform instead of theaters. The explosion was widely seen and people appreciated Karthik’s work in the film.
Dhaakad’s collection giving difficult gestures for Kangana
Dhaakad’s collection sounds like an alarm bell for Kangana Ranaut. Last year he was also commercially disappointed by the Jayalalithaa biopic. Although people liked Kangana’s work. When the trailer for Dhaakad came out, Kangana’s style as a dangerous detective pleased people. But the film collection indicates that Dhaakad did not get the audience. The actress will have to see what is the reason for this.
#Dhaakad Early estimates for Day 1 from all over India are ₹50 Lakhs Nett.

As far as Bollywood is concerned, business figures will be said in its favor. Karthik expressed hope. Akshay Kumar’s Prithviraj will be in theaters the first week of June. The business circle is treating Prithviraj as a block buster.
