‘Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship’ box-office collection Day 1: The Vicky Kaushal starrer opened to a decent collection of Rs 5 crore on Friday – Times of India

After receiving mixed reviews from the audience and critics alike, Bhanu Pratap Singh’s ‘Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship’ starring Vikcy Kaushal opened at the box-office at Rs 5 crore nett on its first Friday, according to a report in
While the opening collection seemed to be decent, it could have collected more, given that it released on the eve of Mahashivratri which made it a holiday release. The film reportedly needs to do more business than Friday on Saturday to keep up in the race. Although not a lot of growth is being anticipated, but it has chances of going a little higher than its opening collection on Friday.

Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship’ has recorded very poor collections in North multiplexes.

Calling his director as a person with brilliant conviction, Vicky said in an interview that ‘Bhoot’ is different from other horror films because of its unique format. He said that although initially he thought the film would have a romantic angle, he was surprised when he read the complete script and discovered that it was a pure horror film with no romance.

Vicky also said that he was keen to explore similar roles in the future. Despite not being a fan of horror films while growing up, the actor said that he wouldn’t mind doing more horror films and called ‘Bhoot’ a learning experience.

Based on true events, ‘Bhoot’ features Vicky as Prithvi, the surveying officer of Seabird, an unmanned ship which washes ashore on Mumbai beach. How Prithvi tries to investigate what happened on the ship while dealing with a spirit is the plot.
The horror film locked horns with Ayushmann Khurrana starrer ‘Shub Mangal Zyada Saavdhan’ at the box-office. While Ayushmann Khurrana’s ‘Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan’ can be seen as a progressive take on the homosexuality, Kaushal’s ‘Bhoot: The Haunted Ship’ is a horror flick revolving around a haunted ship.

Both the films hit the theatres all over the country on February 21.
