Thugs of Hindostan, from Yash Raj Films starring Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan, saw a big drop in box office numbers on day 2. 

According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the film made Rs 28.25 crore on Friday, taking the total to Rs 79 crore in Hindi. The film had earned Rs 50.75 crore on day 1. Its overall India business stood at Rs 81.50 crore on day 2.

Tweeting the figures, he wrote: “#ThugsOfHindostan HINDI: Thu 50.75 cr, Fri 28.25 cr. Total: Rs 79 cr TAMIL + TELUGU: Thu 1.50 cr, Fri 1 cr. Total: Rs 2.50 cr Total: Rs 81.50 cr [5000 screens] India biz. #TOH”

Taran Adarsh commented about the film’s prospects, and declared that the decline had set in.

He wrote: “And the DECLINE begins... #ThugsOfHindostan slips on Day 2, facing a fall during #Diwali holidays... Mass belt / single screens are holding better, but the cracks are already showing at plexes... Day 3 [Sat] and Day 4 [Sun] are extremely crucial... #TOH.”

He further tweeted:

“#ThugsOfHindostan has to show a positive upturn on Day 3 [today], else its sustainability from Day 5 [Mon] onwards will be extremely doubtful... One thing is crystal clear: #TOH has NOT met the monumental expectations... The BO numbers are doing the talking now.”

However, YRF states that the film has made several records. According to Yash Raj Films  themselves, the film has made seven box office records. On its opening day, Thugs shattered all previous opening day box office records in the history of Bollywood, and it also became the first ever film to cross the 50 crore nett mark on a single day.
