Taking to Twitter on Saturday, film trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared a poster of the film featuring Varun. He shared a different box office figure, and tweeted, "Bhediya opens way below the mark on Day 1, despite favourable word of mouth… Reported better occupancy during evening/ night shows, which gives it a chance to gather momentum… Biz (business) needs to multiply on Day 2 and 3 for a healthy weekend total… Friday 7.48 cr. India biz."

Bhediya follows Bhaskar (Varun), who transforms into a werewolf on every full moon night after he is bitten by a mythical wolf. The film also stars Kriti Sanon, Deepak Dobriyal and Abhishek Banerjee. The horror-comedy is produced by Dinesh Vijan. It is presented by Jio Studios and Vijan's Maddock Films.

The Hindustan Times review of Bhediya read, "Varun Dhawan is in top form and owns each frame. He has literally pushed the envelope, tried a new genre, and looked so convincing in it. His transformation scenes from a man to a wolf are stunning and scary at the same time with his ripped muscles and sculpted body giving you the chills. He excels in both comic as well as serious scenes. Kriti Sanon is decent and delivers a fine performance, however, her character, I felt, could have had more depth and better placement in the narrative."
