Yash Raj Film's latest release 'Thugs Of Hindostan' has been faring well at the box office despite choppy reviews. The Aamir Khan-Amitabh Bachchan starrer was at the receiving end of the biggest opening day collections on day one. With day two, TOH has made yet another mark.
According to a report on BoxofficeIndia.com, 'Thugs Of Hindostan' opened to a whopping collection of Rs 50 crore on day 1. The film has gone on to bag the title of the highest opener ever. It has beaten 'Baahubali - The Conclusion' by around 9 crore nett and 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo' by around 11 crore nett, further states the report. Now a new report states that the Saturday collections of the film was as much as 28 crore making the total of Rs 78 crore. With this speed, the film is inching closer towards the 100 crore club raking in the Diwali weekend moolah.
While the film may not enjoy much success from a critics point of view, it is certainly generating the footfalls to cinema halls. Recently, the movie has a different kind of problem to encounter, that of online piracy. According to reports, the Vijay Krishna Acharya directorial has been leaked within hours of it releasing across the country. The ones responsible for this crime are none other than the notorious online piracy website Tamilrockers. Ever since the news of the leak has come out, outraged fans have demanded authorities to take severe action, as this is the second major film that has fallen prey to them in the last one week.
The Aamir Khan-Amitabh Bachchan starrer touted to be a period film set in the backdrop of pre-Independence era sees the duo come together on screen for the very first time. 'Dangal' star Fatima Sana Shaikh and Katrina Kaif are also seen in pivotal roles in the film. Aamir, in one of his interviews, also mentioned that Firangi has been one of the toughest characters to play in his career.
