Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 Box Office: Kartik Aaryan starrer rakes in Rs. 31 crore profit in its final tally for the makers

The Anees Bazmee directorial Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 hit screens a while back and has proved to be a massive money-spinner. Starring Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani the film was well received by the audience. After opening on a good note, the film which released across 3829 screens [domestic 3200 + overseas 629] witnessed immense growth over the subsequent weeks post its release.

In fact, the Bhushan Kumar – Murad Khetani production venture fast became one of the highest-grossing releases of 2022. Now in its fourth week running, the business of the film has continued to maintain pace despite new releases hitting screens. In this box office special report, Bollywood Hungama looks at the Economics of Kartik Aaryan’s Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, to gain a better understanding of how profitable the film was for its makers.

Made on a budget of Rs. 100 crore [including publicity and interest cost due to COVID-19 delay], Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 has raked in Rs. 173.76 crore and is expected to continue business winding up its theatrical run with a collection of Rs. 180 crore at the domestic box office. In such a case, the makers of the film stand to earn approx. Rs. 65 crore from theatrical distribution [as producer’s share] with a further Rs. 7 crore coming in from the overseas markets, where the film was sold for a minimum guarantee. Alongside this, the makers of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 have raked in Rs. 59 crore more from the film’s digital, satellite and music rights. With this, the makers of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 stand to earn Rs. 131 cr. as the overall revenues.

Given the film’s production cost of Rs. 100 crore, and the overall recovery of Rs. 131 crore, the makers [Bhushan Kumar and Murad Khetani] of the Kartik Aaryan starrer are likely to walk away with a Rs. 31 cr. profit with an approx. 31% Return on Investment (RoI).
