Filmmaker Hansal Mehta, after watching Bhediya, praised the film on Twitter, saying that it 'deserves' to become a franchise. However, after a Twitter user called Bhediya 'a box office failure', Hansal schooled him. Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon, who feature as lead actors in Bhediya, also reacted to Hansal's tweet.

Taking to Twitter on Saturday night, Hansal wrote, "Bhediya is an achievement, an experience. I went in as an @amarkaushik fan and emerged out of the cinema hall as a bigger fan. Top class VFX, good storytelling, technically top class and very well acted. This film deserves all the encouragement and success to become a franchise." He also tweeted, "@nirenbhatt @Varun_dvn @kritisanon @nowitsabhi @jiostudios @MaddockFilms and the entire team that made Bhediya possible."

Reacting to his tweet, a Twitter user wrote, "Kar lo support, box office failure hai ye (support it, but this is a box office failure)." Hansal replied, “Tere pappa ke paison ka afsos hain… (I feel sorry for your father's money)." The person responded, "Collection bhi dekh lena (look at the box office collection too)."

A fan supported Hansal, “Agree sir, if this film fails, we will fail as an audience and then we are the only ones that say, 'Ab Bollywood acchi movies nahi banaata (now Bollywood doesn't make good films)'.” Both Varun and Kriti Sanon thanked Hansal, responding to his tweets. Varun wrote, "Thank u so much sir for the encouragement." Kriti tweeted, "Thank you so much sir!"

Bhediya has so far earned over 17.05 crore gross at the domestic box office after it was released on November 25. Meanwhile, Maddock Films, the production house behind the Amar Kaushik-directed horror comedy, said the box office total of Bhediya stands at 26.66 crore following the addition of 14.6 crore on day two. "Bhediya's howl at the box office just got mightier," the banner said in a tweet on its official Twitter account.

Also starring Deepak Dobriyal, Abhishek Banerjee, and Paalin Kabak, the film follows Bhaskar (Varun), who transforms into a werewolf after he is bitten by a mythical wolf. Bhediya is presented by Jio Studios and Dinesh Vijan's Maddock Films.
