The last Bollywood release in the theatres was Yash Raj Film’s Jayeshbhai Jordaar, starring Ranveer Singh, Ratna Pathak Shah, Boman Irani, and Shalini Pandey. The directorial debut of Divyang Thakkar could only collect 3 crore net on its opening day, similar to the day 1 earnings of the recent films Attack, Jersey, Runway 34, and Heropanti 2.

Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 has also crossed the opening day earnings of Bollywood's last bonaf Gangubai Kathiawadi. The Sanjay Leela Bhansali film, led by Alia Bhatt, had collected 10.50 crore after its release on February 25. 

Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is the standalone sequel to the popular 2007 horror-comedy Bhool Bhulaiyaa, which was directed by Priyadarshan and starred Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Amisha Patel, and Shiney Ahuja in the lead roles. Rajpal Yadav is the only cast member from the first part who reprised his role in the sequel as Chhote Pandit.

The Hindustan Times review of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 reads, “While there's nothing common in this sequel and the first part--except Manjulika--the background score and the song Ami Je Tomar constantly take you back to the 2009 film and you again end up comparing. Nevertheless, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is a fresh story and it holds its ground.”
