Thugs Of Hindostan has taken a huge hit on Monday with collections of 5-5.25 crore nett. The writing was on the wall with what happened on Saturday and Sunday with a clash being inevitable and that is what has happened.
This takes the business of the film to around 122.50 crore nett in five days and the first week will be looking at a total of 135 crore nett.
The film will continue to suffer over the next few days and also in the second week when business could be next to nothing and it could stay below the 150 crore nett mark which actually should have been covered in the extended weekend even if the film was just decent.
Its a huge setback to the industry as its the big ones that have to score big to have a big year.
Thugs Of Hindostan released across a whopping 7000 screens worldwide, and its ticket prices also witnessed a hike of at least ten per cent.
Reportedly, the prices in multiplexes ranged from Rs 400 to Rs 1,500, while the average price in single screens went up to Rs 200.
