Big B, Aamir Khan cre­ate box of­fice his­tory

Mid Day - - Hitlist -

De­spite un­favourable re­views, the team of Thugs Of Hindostan had much to cheer about. The ad­ven­ture drama amassed R52.25 crore on day one, thus shat­ter­ing pre­vi­ous first day col­lec­tion records. In col­lect­ing R50.75 crore from its Hindi ver­sion and R1.50 crore from its Tamil and Tel­ugu counterparts, it has be­come the first film to cross the R50 crore­mark on its open­ing day. Di­rec­tor Vi­jay Kr­ishna Acharya says, “We’re ec­static with the love the au­di­ence has show­ered on Thugs to help the film cre­ate box of­fice his­tory on day one. We made the film with a vision to pro­vide a pure fes­tive en­ter­tainer and the re­sult is extremely grat­i­fy­ing.” TOH also boasts of the big­gest Di­wali open­ing ever.
