With Thugs of Hindostan bagging opening day collections worth 52 crores, we’d hoped that this would be another Aamir Khan biggie.
Sadly, the negative word of mouth publicity along with really poor performance by the ensemble cast resulted in the film crashing and burning at the box office.
On the first Sunday since its release, the film which had tremendous promise could only reel in about 17 crores.
On Monday, the film made only about 5 crores, which is a major downturn from Sunday’s collections. The film experienced a drop of 82 % from Friday, and 70 % from Sunday. So far, the total collections have been at only 122.50 crores. And we can estimate, that it is only going to get worse.
The collections are as follows:
Day 1 (Thursday) – 52.5 crores
Day 2 (Friday) – 28 crores
Day 3 (Saturday) – 23 crores
Day 4 (Sunday) – 17 crores
Day 5 (Monday) – 5 crores
Total – 122.50 crores.
Whoa. Who would have thought? It is estimated that by the end of this week, the film will only have made about 135 crores, whereas it should have crossed the 200 crore mark by then. What do you think?
