Box Office: ‘Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan’ appeals to the audience, ‘Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship’ has a decent start


After receiving mixed reviews from the audience and critics alike, Bhanu Pratap Singh’s directorial Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship starring Vicky Kaushal has opened to a decent start at the box office. According to a trade website, the film has garnered Rs 5 crore on its first Friday. Although it could not surpass Vicky’s last year’s release URI: The Surgical Strike’s Day 1 collection. URI had collected Rs 8.20 crore on its first day.

Although’s Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship’s box office collection is decent, given that it released on a partial holiday of Mahashivratri it could have fetched more moolah. However, the film has not worked very well in the North multiplexes. The film also stars Bhumi Pednekar in a cameo appearance.

This Friday’s other release Ayushmann Khurrana’s Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan has fared much better. The film has garnered Rs 9.55 crore on Day 1 which is a tad less as it released on the partial holiday of Mahashivratri. The film’s collection is also in the range of past films of Ayushmann like Bala and Dream Girl which were Rs 10.15 crore and Rs 10.05 crore. 

The film has become the third-best opening day of 2020 after Ajay Devgn starrer Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior and Kartik Aaryan’s and Sara Ali Khan’s Love Aaj Kal. Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan also stars Jitendra Kumar, Gajraj Rao, Neena Gupta, Maanvi Gagroo and Pankhuri Awasthy. It is directed by Hitesh Kewalya.
