Diwali has often turned out to be a lucrative option for the filmmakers. The festive time often sets cash registers ringing and many films have earned the fruits of a festive release. So when Aamir locked in Diwali 2018 for Thugs of Hindostan, all eyes were on this festive bonanza. However, rather than bursting into the sky with innumerable colours, Aamir’s latest releases turned out to be a damp squib.
Aamir Khan is referred to as Mr Perfectionist for a reason. The 53-year-old actor dives into any project with all his creativity and candour. From beefing up in Ghajini to learning the nuances of wrestling in Dangal, Aamir likes to get into the skin of the character. Unlike his contemporaries, he likes to work on one project a year, and it’s been the same drill for over a decade now.
What began at Rs 52 crore on Thursday dipped to Rs 30.75 crore on Friday. The numbers took a further plunge at the box office as it came down to Rs 26 crore on Saturday. Though the film managed to cross the Rs 100-crore mark within three days of its release, Thugs of Hindostan can be called Aamir’s worst film in the recent times.
