Aamir Khan's Thugs Of Hindostan (Thugs Of Hindustan) which was expected to skyrocket at the box office, is now moving at a tortoise speed. The movie is showing no signs of resurrection neither at the Indian market nor overseas and it feels like it should now rest in peace.
Audience felt so cheated after watching director Vijay Krishna Acharya's period drama that they veered away from it and decided not to watch it again in theatres. Cinema hall owners have been cursing the makers for making a film with such a trash content which acted like a repellent to the audience.
Thugs Of Hindostan which stars an ensemble cast of Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Katrina Kaif managed to earn a merely Rs 1.75 crore (approximately) on its second Saturday, according to Box Office India. The movie's total business now stands at Rs 143 crore (approximately) and it looks like the lifetime collections of the film may wrap up soon.
Thugs Of Hindustan is the most expensive Hindi film produced by Yash Raj Films banner with an estimated budget of Rs 300 crore. It was released across 5000 screens in India and 2000 screens overseas. However, after witnessing the film's poor performance and less occupancy in theatres, TOH was revoked from around 1500-1600 screens across the country.
