Box Office Day One collection: Thugs of ...

 

You must have thought that Aamir Khan starrer Thugs of Hindostan will create a new record in the Box office as he established himself as Mr Perfectionists and undisputed king of the box office, though at slightly longer intervals than other Khans. Despite having received negative reviews on Twitter, Thugs of Hindostan is no different, it has already minted around Rs 50 crore on the opening day.

The star-studded film, Thugs of Hindostan, features megastar Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh playing pivotal roles.According to reports, Thugs Of Hindostan has also surpassed the first-day collection of Dangal (Rs 29.78 crore), which currently holds the record for the highest-grossing Indian film ever.

The film Thugs Of Hindostan was released across 7000 screens worldwide, as opposed to Dangal’s 5300 screens may have had a role to play. Ticket prices were also increased for Aamir’s latest release.The film was directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya. Its story revolves around the “thugs” led by the fierce Khudabaksh (Amitabh Bachchan), who poses a threat to the John Clive-led East India Company in 1795 Hindostan. The British recruit Firangi Mallah (Aamir Khan) infiltrates the band of rebels and get them the leader of the thugs.

It has also recorded the third highest pre-sales of all time with around Rs 27.50 crore net, as reported by Boxofficeindia.com. It is the first Bollywood film with such an advance ticket sale as only magnum opus Baahubali 2: The Conclusion and Hollywood film Avengers: Infinity War have recorded higher advance sales.

On Karan Johar’s chat show, Aamir Khan revealed that he was “nervous” about the audience response to the film. “I am especially nervous about this film for one reason that people are used to seeing my films with some message in it or some new concept. This is a film, which is really a mainstream kind of a film. So I am hoping that people will not get disappointed. I enjoyed doing the film, I hope the audience enjoys it as much,” he said.
