Aamir Khan starrer Thugs Of Hindostan is released today and it is creating a havoc at the box office as it is the biggest release of 2018 and is a solo Diwali release. The crowd is huge at the ticket windows and Aamir Khan has brought the Diwali gift to the audience. Brace yourself, the records are going to break and many more are going to be rewritten.
After a strong advance booking, this Aamir Khan lead movie has taken a record breaking start on Thursday. Thugs Of Hindostan’s 1st day box office morning occupancy was around 80-85% which is impressive and easily, the best of 2018.
North India is the best performer for the film and now, Mumbai has also joined the party. The shows were almost housefull across the country throughout the day.
Single screens were also packed for the film. Only Baahubali 2 has the better occupancy in morning than Thugs Of Hindostan now. This means there is a record breaking opening for this Diwali entertainer.
Thugs Of Hindostan’s 1st day box office collections are looking huge, with 46-48 crore total seems easily achievable. The problem is that the audience word of mouth for Thugs Of Hindostan is not much positive and critics too, are giving it a mixed to negative response. This may hamper its collections, at least in the long run, if not in the opening weekend.
By the time the official numbers come in, Thugs Of Hindostan might also score a half century; yes, it can cross the 50 crore mark today. All the other big movies are looking small now before TOH.
With 5000 screens in India, the potential for Thugs Of Hindostan is humongous. Let’s see how much it earns with respect to that potential.
