Kangana Ranaut starrer Dhaakad and Kartik Aaryan’s Bhool Bhuliayaa 2 released on the same day i.e on May 20 and looks like audience has chosen the winner. Bollywood traders and critics were shocked when Ranaut’s Dhaakad only managed to collect 50 lakh on its opening day and its ‘A’ certification definitely did not help it. On the other hand, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 had the second best opening for a Bollywood film in 2022.
Bollywood Hungama has now reported that, Dhaakad had released on 2100 screens but these screens were reduced by 250-300 because there were hardly any people who wanted to watch the movie. A multiplex owner told the media outlet, “I am playing Dhaakad in 2 shows. For the Saturday evening show, only 2 tickets were sold, believe it or not! I’ll still play the film till Sunday. From Monday, I’ll have no choice but to remove it. Jab Saturday shaam ko 2 log aaye hai, toh Monday ko toh koi bhi nahin aayega.”

Several cinema owners are replacing Dhaakad shows with Bhool Bhuliayaa 2 and even KGF: Chapter 2. Manoj Desai, executive director, G7 multiplex and Maratha Mandir Cinema, told the outlet, that there was hardly any audience for Dhaakad so they had to cancel a few shows due to no show by moviegoers. He said, “We decided to shift the film to Gemini (seating capacity of 230). KGF – Chapter 2, which was playing in Gemini, was shifted to Galaxy (seating capacity of100) , as it’s still getting an encouraging response from the moviegoers.”
