Phone Bhoot Box Office Collection Day 1: Another dull Friday at the ticket windows as new Bollywood releases fail to deliver great business. Phone Bhoot, led by Katrina Kaif, and co-starring Ishaan Khatter and Siddhant Chaturvedi, opened to crashing numbers with a decent release of 1300-1400 screens. Although the genre has quite a potential, Phone Bhoot took a spoofy route, which does not have many takers in India. The supernatural-comedy was released alongside Janhvi Kapoor starrer Mili and Huma Qureshi and Sonakshi Sinha's Double XL.
Phone Bhoot Box Office Report
Phone Bhoot will reportedly need a huge growth on Saturday to stand a chance at the box office. According to trade reports, "The main release this week was Phone Booth and it opened to a dull 5-10% response with a decent release of 1300-1400 screens. The opening is low and the other problem for the film is that this genre does not grow like a concept drama. It will need huge growth on Saturday to stand a chance at the box office."
Film trade analyst and critic tweeted, "#PhoneBhoot records low numbers on Day 1… Biz did pick up towards evening shows, but not enough to record a healthy total… All eyes on Day 2 and 3… Fri ₹ 2.05 cr. #India biz."
"The only plus can be is that opened better than competition of Mili and Double XL but that is not much of an achievement as those films opened to horrible collections with Mili being better of the two," Box Office India added.
