Written and directed by Faruk Kabir, the film is a direct sequel to the 2020 film Khuda Haafiz, released on Hotstar amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Also, starring Shivaleeka Oberoi, the action drama was released on July 8. He made a business of around Rs 1.25 crore on the first day. Since then, the film has struggled to hit decent numbers. Also on Day 8, Khuda Haafiz 2 failed to attract audiences to the theater.

A report from Box Office India said that “Khuda Haafiz 2 collections have dropped a bit from Monday as that Eid factor has come out of play and the movie may hold up better on Wednesday and Thursday. The numbers are low, the advantage being that the collections don’t go down off a cliff which can happen for this type of action movie as seen last week with Rashtra Kavach – Om This is really where the second Friday and it would have been nice if he could have picked up 1 crore net on the second Friday, but that seems unlikely now.”

“The first week would end at just under 10 crore nett and the film can compete with new releases in places like UP, CPCI and Bihar in the second week,” the report added. ALSO READ: Thor Love And Thunder Box Office Collection: Chris Hemsworth’s film surpasses Rs 80 crore in first week
