Bhoothnath Returns has collected Rs 3.5 crore on its first day at the box office, which is below-average for a film released on approximately 1350 screens across India. The first Bhoothnath film, which released 6 years ago on 600 plus screens, had collected Rs 2.5 crore on Day 1.
The film opened poorly in the morning, but managed to pick up towards the end of the day at multiplexes, especially in cities like Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad and Bangalore.
The word-of-mouth is good, both the adults and kids are enjoying the film, that has a terrifically entertaining first half followed by a more serious ‘election-centric’ second half.
At most centres, the occupancy for the morning shows on Saturday is better than Friday, so the film looks set for a much better total today and tomorrow.
How much do you think Bhoothnath Returns will collect on Saturday and Sunday? Tell us!
Fair collections. You can’t expect a film starring Amitabh Bachchan to collect more than 4 crore on first day. He is and always will be a very dependable performer, but he is no longer a bankable star box office wise.
If Friday is 3.5 cr.. then Saturday should be 4.5 cr and Sunday should be 5 cr. Total of 13 cr.
@indicine, what is the budget of Bhootnath Returns?
Is Shahrukh Khan losing his magic?
Amitabh Bachchan, Shahrukh Khan & Boman Irani starrer makes 3 crore in first day. With MAIN TERA HERO eyeing a major chunk of the pie last week, one expected the keenly-anticipated Amitabh Bachchan starrer BHOOTHNATH RETURNS to open well in the domestic market. Notwithstanding the solo release status, aggressive pre-release promotion and a brand value attached to its title, the start has been sluggish almost everywhere.
Shahrukh rendered his support and graced the screen for Nitesh Tiwari Bhootnath2, SRK’s presence failed to give Amitabh Bachchan and debutante Parth Bhalerao’s movie the much needed boost.
it should be an average fare again same as the first part……..
i hope it collects well and manages to become a hit..it deserves it
Saturday – 4.5 cr
Sunday – 6 cr
I think it will collect finaly 14 to 20 cr. and its verdict will Above average or flop … Unfortunately
the song are not too good …
Rajnikanth should have done a cameo in Bhootnaath Returns. Then It would surely have done 100 crores. Even a tribute to Rajnikanth would have saved the film.
My friends are also telling me that the film is exactly like that, hope it picks up today and tomorrow.
@fan club: shahrukh khan is not in this movie
If shahrukh loses his magic then same goes with ranber as well.he also has a song appearence!!!
And also salman’s magic in blockbuster’O TERI’ !!!
It is not good collection which is released on 1400 screens. Bhoothnath Returns will be dependent on word on mouth which should not be the case with a sequel/series film but as the first one was not a big success it makes it harder for Bhoothnath Returns to get the initial audience. The film has cameos by big stars like Shahrukh Khan and Ranbir Kapoor but its unlikely to help the opening. Disappointing!!!
Now Amitabh Bachchan and Shahrukh Khan are not big star.
Bhoothnath better than overrated movie O TERI
salman loses his charm. o Teri life time collection r not even 1st day collection of bhootnath return.

Bhoothnath is at 8.1/10, may stabilize at 7.4/10, when will shahrukh or salman give us these scores with their releases.
Only akshay Kumar fans can say that…I mean they have a great sense of joking…:-)
