Will Thugs Of Hindostan Become First Bollywood Film To Cross 400 Crores?

Thugs Of Hindostan movie is all set to release on November 8, 2018. It is being touted to be the costliest Bollywood film of all time. Made with a humongous budget of around 250 crores, will this film able to collect 400 Crores and start a new 400 club in Bollywood?

Aamir Khan is the one known for starting 100 crore club with Ghajini in 2008, 200 crore club with 3 Idiots in 2009 and 300 crores club with PK in 2014. Well, his Dangal lifetime collection was 387 crores and misses the 400 crore club entry in 2016. Now, it’s the perfect time for Aamir Khan to create new history with Thugs Of Hindostan to make it enter in 400 Crores Club in 2018.

Thugs Of Hindostan is releasing on November 8, 2018 on Diwali day. That means it is the perfect time to rake a big money at the box office. Last year, Golmaal Again and Secret Superstar performed well on Diwali with a clash. This time, TOH releasing as solo so it would definitely make a massive collection at the box office.

If we talk about Aamir’s past two films PK and Dangal, they both have started slow in first week but remains stable in weekdays. Interestingly, they did better collection in second week as compare ot other stars releases like Tiger Zinda Hai and Sultan. Here, the trend of TOH will be similar in the second week.

Suppose, if Thugs breaches over 40 crores plus collection on Thursday at day 1. It will surely end its four days weekend total over 150 to 160 crores. It is only possible if the film get good word of mouth publicity, which looks positive now after the release of Thugs Of Hindostan motion logo. By the end of 1st weekend, TOH will easily cross 210 to 215 crores. As there is no competition in the second week and that means it will easily earn over 120 plus crores as Aamir Khan films don’t drop over 50 percent in second film example, Dangal and PK. That means, Thugs Of Hindostan will easily earn around 320 to 330 crores by the end of second week (15 days – November 22, 2018).

Aamir Khan film won’t face any clash in third week too as Student Of The Year 2 Postponed From November 23, 2018 to Next year. TOH will have free run till November 28 (Wednesday) and in this 6 days TOH able to cross 45 to 50 crores easily. In such a way, TOH will touch 370 to 380 crores till third week.

From November 29, 2019, Thugs Of Hindostan will face a clash with Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar starring 2.0 which is made with a budget of over 545 crores. Now, how much shows will remain for TOH will be depend upon the buzz around 2.0 release. Still, if TOH get only 10 to 15 percent of screens in fourth week still it will able to cross 25 to 30 crores mark till its lifetime. That will take the lifetime total of Thugs Of Hindostan to 405 to 410 crores.

One thing is for sure, Thugs Of Hindostan will run for a month and it has a strong chance to beat Dangal lifetime collection of 387 crores. As per my presumptions, Thugs Of Hindostan has a potential to cross 400 crores.

Directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, Thugs Of Hindostan stars Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Ronit Roy and Katrina Kaif.
