Despite pathetic feedback, ‘Thugs of Hindostan enters the 100 crore club

Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan in a still from the film

The week is expected to close out at Rs 135 crore net which is enough to tell the rest of unfortunate story.

After collecting a very large Rs 52.25 crore on day 1 (Thursday), Thugs Of Hindostan witnessed nearly 50 percent drop in its collections and earned merely Rs 28 crore (approximately) on day 2 (Friday).

The drop in the collection has been consistent since the second day and Sunday took another dip with just Rs 17.25 crore in its kitty and rs 123 crore in its extended weekend. Looking at the current status of the film, made at the budget of 300 crores, YRF seems to be at a huge loss and nothing at all might save this sinking ship. Thugs of Hindostan managed to reap in the benefits of the Diwali season but failed to maintain the rhythm in the following days.

Amnesty International takes back its highest honor from Aung San Suu Kyi
South Africa's Amnesty International exec Shenilla Mohamed says the decision to strip away the honour was not taken lightly. The views of columnists published on News24 are therefore their own and do not necessarily represent the views of News24.

Despite negative reviews and criticisms, "Thugs of Hindostan" succeeded in securing its place in the list of movies that have entered the coveted 100 crores business club.

It is to be noted, the three-day collections of the film stood lower than Ranbir Kapoor's Sanju and Salman Khan's Tiger Zinda Hai.

Thugs of Hindostan became the first ever Bollywood film to make half a century on its opening day. The movie was backed by huge pre-release buzz due to the presence of living legend Amitabh Bachchan and Superstar Aamir Khan and touted as a strong contender to beat the record of Baahubali 2: The Conclusion (Hindi version). Meanwhile, Badhai Ho which released a few weeks ago is still doing well at the box office.
