Box Office: Yesterday, the box office witnessed another clash of the year in the form of Ayushmann Khurrana’s Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan and Vicky Kaushal’s Bhoot: Part One – The Haunted Ship. Expectedly, Ayushmann’s film managed an upper hand but speaking about the overall scenario, the film remained lower than Varun Dhawan-Shraddha Kapoor’s Street Dancer 3D and Kartik Aaryan-Sara Ali Khan’s Love Aaj Kal.
Released on the occasion of Maha Shivratri, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan earned 9.55 crores on opening day, thus missing the double-digit score by a small margin. Nevertheless, it’s good enough considering the clash. The film recorded 4th best opening of the year below Street Dancer 3D (10.26 crores), Love Aaj Kal (12.40 crores), Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior (15.10 crores).
On the other side, Bhoot: Part One – The Haunted Ship too started its journey on a decent note by bringing in 5.10 crores. It surpassed the opening day collections of Deepika Padukone’s Chhapaak (4.77 crores), which too released in a clash.
