Aamir Khan’s Thugs Of Hindostan was expected to be the highest earned film of the year but it has failed to score magical numbers as it now stands with Rs 145.95 crore. The film has made a record on its opening day with Rs 52.25 crore and termed as the highest opening film of the year. Meanwhile, the film also labeled as a biggest Diwali opener. Thugs Of Hindostan stars Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Fatima Sana Sheikh, and Katrina Kaif.
The film managed to earn Rs 2.46 crore on its eleventh day and hard to show any growth in its last one week.
Thugs Of Hindostan’s second-week box office collection goes like this, On Friday Rs 1.30 crore, Saturday Rs 1.70 crore, Sunday Rs 2.40 crore and the total amount stands with Rs 140.35 crore.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted its second-week box office collection “#ThugsOfHindostan [Week 2] HINDI: Fri 1.30 cr, Sat 1.70 cr, Sun 2.40 cr. Total: ₹ 140.35 cr.

The story of the film derives from a novel ‘Confession Of A Thug’ which explained the struggle of thugs who fought with the Britishers. Taran also tweeted about its overseas collection “#ThugsOfHindostan is an underperformer in international markets… OVERSEAS total after Week 1: $ 7.80 million [₹ 56.11 cr]… Breakup of key markets: #USA + #Canada: $ 1.76 mn #UAE + #GCC: $ 2.72 mn #UK: $ 810k Rest of the World: $ 2.51 mn Few cinemas yet to report… #TOH.”
Aamir Khan essayed the role of a Thugee while others performed their part as Katrina Kaif played Suraiyaa’s role as a dancer, Amitabh Bachchan as a Khudabaksh and Fatima Sana Sheikh as a freedom fighter. Shahrukh Khan has supported the film as he said that the people have become too harsh for their efforts.
