Thugs Of Hindostan was announced, fans were waiting to watch this mega blockbuster on screen.
Thugs Of Hindostan featured some of the biggest names in the world of Indian cinema failed to live up to the expectations of people. The film stars Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Sheikh in leading roles and is directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya. The film has just managed to collect a little over Rs. 143 crore, which is way below the predictions given by trade pundits before the film’s release.
A report in a leading portal claims that the disappointing box-office figures have resulted in the producers and exhibitors of the film suffering heavy losses. The web portal claims that it is only the sub-distributors of Yash Raj Films, who distributed the film on a commission basis, are at profit.
Since the production house distributed the film on a minimum guarantee deal, they have pocketed a heavy chunk of the profit. The report also reveals that the losses faced by the exhibitors are even higher than Salman Khan’s Tubelight. In fact, even the producers of Shah Rukh Khan’s Harry Met Sejal made profits, however, it isn’t the same case with this one. Their last and only hope is now China where the film will be released next month.
