This Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif starrer is all set to release in India on November 8, but its release date in China is also grabbing some attention. Aamir is a massive star in neighboring China as is clear from the success of all of his previous movie releases there including Dangal, Secret Superstar and 3 Idiots.
In a big triumph for Aamir Khan, which also shows how big a star he is in China, Variety reports that Thugs of Hindostan is set to release in the middle of December in China, which is considered as the best period for a profitable outing at the box office.
Thugs of Hindostan film, produced by Yash Raj Films’ (YRF), will release in Hindi, Telugu, and Tamil versions in regular 2D and IMAX format in India. Storyline is based on 18th century fight for freedom from the British rule in India. The film has some big names such as Fatima Sana Shaikh and Lloyd Owen too.
If reports are to be believed, over 2 lacs tickets are already sold out. The advance booking of TOH is far better than Sanju and Tiger Zinda hai but it is less than SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali: The Conclusion. The Aamir Khan starrer has fared extremely well in the single screens but the sell is less in the multiplexes which could affect the nett advance collections of the film. Well, the pre-Diwali booking has always helped several films in the past, best being Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal Again which had released last year on Diwali. Golmaal Again had competition from Secret Superstar and yet managed to cross 30 crores on its day 1. Same as Thugs Of Hindostan, Golmaal Again too released on the 2nd day of Diwali.
