Diwali release Thugs Of Hindostan has a disappointing 1st week at the box office. After a record breaking opening day, the film just couldn’t witness the growth on any of its further days as audience simply rejected it. Critics too, gave it negative reviews. TOH has just managed to touch the 135 crore mark in its 1st week.
Thugs Of Hindostan was the biggest releases of 2018 and it had such a huge buzz pre-release that the trade was expecting it to cross the 300 crore mark minimum, but now, it won’t even touch the 200 crore mark in its theatrical run. No one had imagined that an Aamir Khan film to perform such poorly but that happened.
Here are Thugs Of Hindostan’s 1st Week Box Office Collections (Extended):
1st Thursday: 50.75 crore
Friday: 28.25 crore
Saturday: 22.75 crore
Sunday: 17.25 crore
Monday: 5.50 crore
Tuesday: 4.35 crore
Wednesday: 3.50 crore
2nd Thursday: 3.30 crore (approx.)
Total: 135.65 crore (approx.)
Moreover, YRF had invested a lot in Tamil and Telugu dubbed release to market the film in South India but there too, it failed, as it has merely collected 2 crore from there in those languages. This Friday, there are no big releases but Thugs Of Hindostan won’t witness much occupancy in 2nd weekend. It will wrap up below 160 crore for its lifetime collections.
Due to the dismal performance of TOH, shows for Badhaai Ho, AndhaDhun, Tumbbad and Baazaar have been increased and other new releases will also be getting increased shows. Thugs Of Hindostan had been released in 5000 screens in India with a solo release. Directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, it also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh.
