Aamir Khan is one actor and filmmaker who always manages to be at the top of the game in Bollywood. When it comes to delivering extraordinary entertainment to the audiences, his films surely stand a class apart. Be it ‘Ghajini’, ‘3 Idiots’, ‘Dhoom 3’, ‘PK’ or ‘Dangal’, Aamir Khan’s films have been the most awaited ones among Bollywood fans. In fact, after ‘Dangal’ broke numerous records of international box office collection and popularity, Aamir Khan has managed to garner a huge fan following globally as well.
The next film Aamir Khan is working on is ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ that also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Katrina Kaif in lead roles. It is an action-adventure film based on Philip Meadows Taylor’s novel ‘Confessions of a Thug’.
There is no doubt that ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ is one of the most awaited films of this year. And Aamir Khan and his team are leaving no stone unturned to make sure that the film turns out to be a huge success.
Recently, the release date of the film was pushed by one day and it will now release on November 8, 2018, instead of November 7, 2018. There is an interesting reason behind the shifting of release day by the makers of the film after Aamir Khan’s suggestion.
It is believed that Aamir Khan has a very deep understanding of business at the box office. And therefore he suggested the makers of ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ to postpone the film’s release by one day.
Interestingly, earlier, the release of the film was coinciding with Diwali, the festival which Indians celebrate on a very grand scale. Therefore Aamir Khan believed that the film might not be able to do well at the box office as people would be busy with Lakshmi puja at their homes. And this will affect the first-day collections of ‘Thugs of Hindostan’.
It is important to note that Yash Raj Films is preparing for the release of the film on a very large scale. Apart from Hindi, the film will also be released in Tamil and Telugu and not just in 2D but in 3D and IMAX as well.
As per a report by Amarujala, the decision to push the release of the film by one day upon Aamir Khan’s suggestion will make sure a collection of at least Rs 500 crore!
