Box Office Collections: After being in the industry for three decades, Aamir Khan has scored a personal record again with the biggest opening ever for a film of his. Though he has done that earlier too with Mangal Pandey which had taken the biggest opening ever of all times, and moreover also has the unique distinction of being the father of 100 crore, 200 crore and 300 crore club, his eyes were on scoring the first ever 50 crore day in the history of Bollywood.

Well, that has happened now, what with Thugs of Hindostan managing this feat. The film has gone past the 50 crore mark and with that has also turned out to be Aamir Khan’s biggest opening ever and that too by a huge margin.

Dhoom: 336.22 crore (including Tamil and Telugu)

Dangal 29.78 crore (including Tamil and Telugu)

Incidentally, the first two in the list have both been an Aditya Chopra production with Vijay Krishna Acharya as the director.

What one waits to see now is the kind of momentum that Thugs of Hindostan maintains over the extended four day weekend. That would decide if more records are in store for Aamir Khan in days to come.

  1. It’s a waste of time. Film will succeed only because of Aamir, Amitab, Katrina and the yash banner which gained 5000 release screen. Katrina is just for few minutes and the marketing was as if lead role as well. This movie is just cheating the people.
