Self proclaimed superstar Kangana’s Dhaakad screenings in various theatres have been canceled due to ‘zero’ attendance; replaced by Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 screenings

The comedy-thriller Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 created a lot of buzz and was the audience's first choice. As a result, Dhaakad's dismal start was to be expected.

Dhaakad, starring Kangana Ranaut, was released in theaters on May 20. The trailer promises a slick action thriller while also attempting to provide something fresh. Unfortunately, the hype surrounding the picture was little. It likewise obtained an ‘A’ rating, and it competed alongside Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, starring Kartik Aaryan, Kiara Advani, and Tabu. The comedy-thriller created a lot of buzz and was the audience’s first choice. As a result, Dhaakad’s dismal start was to be expected. The aim was that word of mouth would spread and it would grow.

A source told BH, “There was absolutely no excitement among the audience to see Dhaakad. There were reports that there were a handful of viewers in the theatres on Day 1. Many shows across the country got cancelled due to no audience. On top of it, the word of mouth was terrible. Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, meanwhile, has been enjoyed by the audience. As a result, it has grown from strength to strength while Dhaakad has got outright rejection from the audiences.”

The source further added, “Dhaakad had got a limited release in the single screens. On Saturday, several theatres removed it as it didn’t make sense to play the film with less than 10-15 audiences inside the large single screen theatres. Multiplexes too reduced the shows to some extent. From today (Sunday), there would be a heavy reduction as Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 has tremendous demand. Hence, its shows will be replaced with that of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2.”

A three-screen multiplex owner, on the condition of anonymity, said, “I am playing Dhaakad in 2 shows. For the Saturday evening show, only 2 tickets were sold, believe it or not! I’ll still play the film till Sunday. From Monday, I’ll have no choice but to remove it. Jab Saturday shaam ko 2 log aaye hai, toh Monday ko toh koi bhi nahin aayega.”

Meanwhile, Mumbai’s iconic Maratha Mandir, which was showing the film in one show, has stopped showing it as of Sunday. The position has obviously been taken over by Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. Dhaakad was shown for two days in the G7 multiplex, also known as Gaiety-Galaxy, which has a seating capacity of nearly 1000. Dhaakad’s events were moved to Gemini, which has a seating capacity of 230, on Sunday.
