The first weekend of Bholaa, which starred Ajay Devgn in the lead role, saw some growth at the domestic box office.

Ajay Devgn Films, T-Series Productions, Reliance Entertainment and Dream Warrior Pictures are the producers of Bholaa. Gajraj Rao, Sanjay Mishra, Vineet Kumar, and Deepak Dobriyal are also featured in Bhola.
Taran Adarsh, a film trade analyst, shared a poster for Bholaa on Twitter on Monday and remarked, “Bholaa puts up a healthy score in its *extended* 4-day weekend… The spike on Sat and Sun added strength to its overall total… Thu ₹11.20 cr, Fri ₹7.40 cr, Sat ₹12.20 cr, Sun ₹13.48 cr. Total: ₹44.28 cr. India biz.”
“Bholaa needs to maintain the momentum over weekdays… In fact, his performance on weekdays will determine where it’s headed.”
Bholaa is a Hindi remake of Kaithi, a successful Tamil film written and directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj. It centres on an ex-convict (Karthi) who intends to see his daughter for the first time after being freed from jail but gets caught in a shootout between the police and the drug mafia. Ajay plays a newly released prisoner in the film Bholaa, and Tabu plays an IPS officer.
