The Kartik Aaryan starrer Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 released five weeks ago and since then, there has been no stopping the film at the box office. After opening on a good note, the Anees Bazmee directorial fast went past the Rs. 100 crore and Rs. 150 crore mark. Now, after five weeks the Bhushan Kumar – Murad Khetani production has managed to rake in Rs, 184.32 crore, and continues to inch closer to the Rs. 200 crore mark.
While the film continues its box office run in the domestic market, overseas as well, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 has met with resounding success. In fact, among Kartik Aaryan’s releases till date, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 which has raked in USD 5.50 million stands as the actor’s most successful release in this market.
