The audiences had expectations from the movie and the makers had a chance to cash their bonus on the big day. It was the most anticipated movie of the year as it was marking the first movie of Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan together and it had an extended weekend of four days for the release. Earlier this year we saw Salman Khan’s race 3 couldn’t find the pace at the box office as the movie was criticized much by the viewers, but it is looking that the collection of TOH is even lower than Race 3 as it earned on its first monday 5.50 crores which is less than race 3 first monday. The movie took its total to 123.50 crores.
Thugs Of Hindustan In Coming Days
Now, we have to see how the movie fares in the coming days as it already had a dull phase at the box office, if the movie continue its bad performance at the BO, then the makers of the movie would have to face loss as it is made on a budget of 300 crores. Let’s see if the movie could find the pace or its going to continue its dull run at the BO.
