Thugs Of Hindostan starring Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif, Fatima Sana Shaikh has finally hit the theatres and seems like it is not that a Diwali bonanza it was touted to be! The VFX-heavy ambitious period drama had a lot of buzz going on pre-release but it’s only been a few days and it has already been labelled as a disaster! Yes, despite bad reviews the action-adventure fantasy film raked in over Rs 5 crore on its first day to become the highest opener of all time in the Indian cinema but it was a downhill after that. In fact, the negative word of mouth and memes on the film have filled the internet have not let the film lift its graph.
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. And now, if Monday numbers are anything to go by, the ship has sunk further. After collecting Rs 123 cr, the film has witnessed a massive dip on its first Monday and raked in around Rs 5.25 crore. It currently stands with the grand total of Rs 128 crore. Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh even took to Twitter to cite reasons as to why it faltered at the ticket windows.
It is safe to say, that while ToH managed to reap in the benefits of the Diwali season, it failed to maintain the influx in the following days and the rest is in front of you.
