READ | Bhediya: Hansal Mehta reacts to Twitter user calling Varun Dhawan’s film ‘box office failure’, says ‘tere papa ke…’
For Varun, Bhediya is his second theatrical release of the year after the family entertainer JugJugg Jeeyo co-starring Kiara Advani, Anil Kapoor, and Neetu Kapoor was released in June earlier this year. Produced by Karan Johar, the film did a decent business of around Rs 85 crore at the domestic box office.
Drishyam 2 is Ajay’s third theatrical release in 2022 after two box office failures in the form of Runway 34 and Thank God. He made powerful cameo appearances in two successful films earlier this year, namely RRR and Gangubai Kathiawadi. He also made his OTT debut this year with psychological crime thriller series Rudra: The Edge of Darkness.
