Aamir Khan’s much awaited mega epic film ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’ released and broke all records on Day 1 as it raked in INR 50 crores but post that things have been on a downhill for the Yash Raj film.
After earning mediocre numbers on a long weekend, the film saw a dip of 90% and earned a figure of just 6 crores at the box office. The negative word of mouth affected the film very badly and the film is now on the verge to become a ‘Disaster.’
Amidst all the chaos, celebs came out to support Aamir and his film, even SRK came out to lend a sympathetic shoulder to Aamir, he said: “There are people who have given excellence to cinema for years. A film can be good, a film can be bad; none of us can ever claim ki ‘maine duniya ki sabsi achchi film banayi hain.’ Mr Bachchan and Aamir have been people who have constantly contributed to the excellence of cinema. The greatest contribution to Hindi cinema in the last 10 years has been from Aamir, and with Amitji, it’s been even longer. Now if a film of theirs (Thugs of Hindostan) doesn’t reach the level that you expected it to, does it take away from what they have done for cinema?”
He also added: “I think some people have been a little too harsh. It’s heartbreaking. It doesn’t mean that their spirit is broken, they are all amazing artistes who will bounce back. But one needs to be a little less harsh. Aamir has never done a film in which he hasn’t put in his best… I’ve known him for 20 years. And if there’s anyone who can put in even more effort than Aamir — which Aamir will also agree — it’s Amitji… and at this age! So they’ve come in with good hearts and great talent and tried to make a film which tries to open up a new genre.”
Meanwhile, Shah Rukh is prepping for his Christmas release titled ‘ZERO’, the film’s trailer was loved and lauded by one and all, let us see how the film fares at the box office.
