The much hyped magnum opus Thugs Of Hindostan has taken off to a flying start at the ticket windows in advance bookings across the country as per the trade.
Apparently, it has sold around 2 lakh tickets across the country on Saturday. While this is better than Tiger Zinda Hai, Sanju and Avengers – Infinity War it is less than Baahubali – The Conclusion. The NETT amount collected in advance will also be lower than Avengers – Infinity War as Thugs Of Hindostan has nearly half the tickets sold coming from single screens while Avengers – Infinity War was far less in single screens as per the trade.
As per the trade, though it has taken taken a good start at the advance bookings it may be difficult to judge where it will land up just before release. If the first day pace continues it could be near Bahubali – The Conclusion but past history says the pace over the next few days may not be like films released in other periods so it may even finish like a Tiger Zinda Hai or Sanju. But irrespective of advance its pretty certain that the on the day audience will come on day one after the Diwali festivities are over. Generally 15 lakh tickets sold prior to release would be huge today.
One will have to wait and watch how Thugs Of Hindostan performs at the box-office over the coming days.
