National Award-winning actor Vicky Kaushal‘s latest horror flick ‘Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship‘ which opened at Rs 5 crore saw a rise on Saturday and has managed to keep up the momentum as it minted another Rs 5.50 crore on Sunday. According to the latest Box Office India report, the film has now reached a total of Rs 16 crore.
The film which is helmed by Bhanu Pratap Singh has received mixed reviews from the audience and critics alike but it failed to allure the masses to the theatres. Furthermore, the report also suggests that the film has done well in Mumbai and South but failed to excel in other regions. With Ayushmann Khurrana‘s ‘Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan‘ also giving a strong competition in the domestic circuit, Vicky’s ‘Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship’ is expected to have a tough route ahead.
Meanwhile, in an exclusive interview with ETimes, Vicky opened up his experience of filming ‘Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship’. He said, “My experience of shooting for Bhoot was amazing and it was a great learning experience for me because it was a completely new genre. It was a genre I was not prepared for, a grammar I was not prepared for. It becomes very technical and intricate while performing scenes, especially when you are alone in that haunted ship, where you are reacting to nothingness. All the audios and the visuals that I have reacted to were created later on so performing becomes all the more difficult. You have to keep engaging with your director as to what his vision is like and what are the things he is planning to add. So it becomes very clinical and technical.”
