This Diwali looks like Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan starrer ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’ is all set to break the records held by ‘Tiger Zinda Hai‘ and ‘Dangal’ as it has earned more screen count than any other previous Hindi film. Yes, the Mr.Perfectionist’s film is all set to be released in as much as 7000 screens worldwide.

Sharing details of the film’s screen count, Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted,

‘Thugs of Hindostan’ will release on 5000 screens in India combining the Hindi, Telegu and Tamil screenings. Overseas it shall be released across 2000 screens. The Aamir Khan starrer has broken the record held by Salman Khan‘s ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ that released on 4,600 screens across India. However, ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ failed to match ‘Baahubali 2’s screen count, which was allotted 6,500 screens (including Hindi, Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam) across India. ‘Baahubali 2’ still remains the biggest Indian release ever.

With such massive release, ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ is expected to create new box office records. Considering the hype around the film, and the advance booking status, trade analysts are predicting that the Vijay Krishna Acharya directorial will pass the 100 crore club within three days of its release.

‘Thugs of Hindostan’ is a fictional tale of Indian thugs fighting against the East India company set in the pre-independence era. It also features Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh in pivotal roles and will be releasing on November 8 i.e tomorrow.
