Despite Drishyam 2's dominance, Varun Dhawan's Bhediya has also managed to secure a decent spot at the box office. The movie has surpassed the Rs 50 crore threshold after a week of modest development.
Dishing out details about the same, Taran Adarsh wrote, “#Bhediya gets moving in Weekend 2, but the growth is restricted due to #D2 dominance… An upward trend on [second] Sat and Sun is a positive sign, but the 10-day total is below expectations… [Week 2] Fri 1.95 cr, Sat 3.70 cr, Sun 4.36 cr. Total: ₹ 52.06 cr. #India biz.”

We have been talking about doing something for a long time and hopefully it should happen in some time. Once it happens, it will be announced. But, we are working towards working together."
Dhawan will reportedly commence shooting for his web series debut Citadel, the Indian version of Amazon Studio's ambitious spy series, next month. It will be directed by Raj & DK and also feature Samantha Ruth Prabhu. "I'm going to be shooting something which I will announce, it will start from December 7," he said.
