‘Thugs of Hindostan’ breaks box-office record, earns 52 crore on day 1

YRF’s Diwali bonanza ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’ breaks the all time record of Hindi cinema at the box-office. The action-adventure film may not have opened with rave reviews but the multi-starrer film has won the heart of the audience. On it’s opening day, ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ has earned a whopping amount of 52 crore including the Tamil and Telugu-dubbed versions. The Hindi version alone has garnered Rs 50.75 crore.

‘Thugs of Hindostan’ is also the biggest opener of 2018. The film had a huge screen release of over 7000 worldwide. Ticket prices were also hiked considering it is Aamir's latest release.

Along with the plot, the star cast played a massive role for the massive first day collection. For the first time Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan are sharing screen space and so the excitement level has been sky high.

On Karan Johar's chat show, Aamir revealed that he was "nervous" about the audience's response to the film.

"I am specially nervous about this film for one reason that people are used to seeing my films with some message in it or some new concept. This is a film, which is really a mainstream kind of a film. So I am hoping that people will not get disappointed. I enjoyed doing the film, I hope the audience enjoys it as much," he said.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted about the film’s collection.

 "Thugs Of Hindostan smashes all records (Hindi films) as it breaches Rs. 50 crore on Day 1. Sets new benchmarks in some circuits. Big holiday (Diwali) + tremendous hype + massive screen count help put up a sensational total," tweeted Mr Adarsh.

He elaborated the figures:
