Anees Bazmee’s Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 released in theaters on May 20 and received positive response from critics and audiences. The film also stars Tabu, Rajpal Yadav, Sanjay Mishra and Kiara Advani. The film, produced by Bhushan Kumar-led T-Series and Cine1 Studios, has 230.75 crore worldwide to date.

In an interview with News18, Kartik said: “I was confident in the content and knew that the film at the very least 100 crore at the till. But I didn’t know we’d be able to revive the industry. We never thought it would cross 200 crore mark. It is beyond our expectations. It was my first theatrical release after the pandemic, so I was nervous about the audience reaction. There was a lot of buzz in the market that as the film crosses 80 to 90 crore, it will be good considering the times we are in. But like I said, it’s going extremely well.”

The film has hit ₹230.75 crore worldwide to date.

He also added: “We were convinced that the family audience will enjoy it because it is an entertaining film. What amazed me was the reaction of children, such as three-year-olds, singing Hare Ram. It all feels unreal. We had never thought it would penetrate so much Jayesbhai Joradar came out a week before us We had Top Gun a week after us and later we had Samrat Prithviraj Later came in Jurassic World Dominion which also opened well We are in our sixth week and the film is in theaters and is even in the top five on Netflix, which is unreal in today’s time.”

Kartik has several projects in the pipeline, including Shehzada, directed by Rohit Dhawan. He also has Hansal Mehta’s Captain India and a self-titled musical love saga with Sameer Vidwans in the works.
