After its first weekend at the box office, Vicky Kaushal starring Bhoot Part 1- The Haunted Ship has minted a total collection of Rs. 16 crores. The latest horror film opened to a slow start on Friday and then made Rs. 5.50 crores on Saturday. The film collected another Rs. 5 crores on Sunday.
While the film is doing marginally at the box office it is trailing far behind the collections of Ayushmann Khuranna's Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan. After the first weekend Khuranna's latest film also already made over Rs. 30.75 crores. Bhoot: Part 1- The Haunted Ship's collections are particularly sad as it was not able to make a big profit out of the holiday on Friday for Maha Shivratri.
Despite the national award winner Vicky Kaushal's presence the film has failed to capture the hearts of either the critics or the average Indian viewer. The film's negative word of mouth hasn't helped it in increasing its profits. The actor had previously stated that he will consider doing a sequel depending on how well the film does at the box office. Seeing the current run there is a very slim chance that Bhoot will be able to get a sequel.
The film produced by Karan Johar among others. Bhanu Pratap Singh has written and directed the film. Vicky Kaushal previously also stated that he is extremely excited about doing his first horror film as he has not explored this territory before.
