Superstar Aamir Khan’s ‘Thugs of Hindostan‘, after failing to leave a mark at the domestic circuit, has failed to impress his diehard Chinese fans too. Yes, the film has taken a poor start at the Chinese box-office too. The movie, which released in China almost a month after in India, made just Rs. 10 crore at the Chinese box office on day one.
‘Thugs of Hindostan’ had failed to cast its charm on the Indian fans but was expected to make up for some of the lost ground in China where the Perfectionist has a humongous fan following. In China, his last two films – ‘Dangal’ and ‘Secret Superstar’ – have done stupendous business.
Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the figures on Saturday. He wrote that Aamir Khan’s Thugs Of Hindostan has had a shockingly low start in #China… Fri $ 1.53 mn [Rs 10.67 cr]… Includes previews Showings: 27,577 Admissions: 338,601#TOH.
But though the movie failed to leave a mark at the box office, the producers have still minted money.
According to a report in Box Office India, ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ is the only Indian film where producers made huge money by its release in China. Earlier, the Chinese distributors pocketed the profits, but this time it will be them who will face the loss. Yash Raj Films will still be in profit as the deal in China for ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ was Rs 115 crore which means the recovery is close to Rs 400 crore.
Looks like this will be Aamir Khan’s first film in China that has not been able to garner much at the box-office.
