Despite poor reviews Aamir Khan is humbled by the love that the audience has showered on Thugs Of Hindostan

The film had collected a shattering Rs 50 crore on the first day and has crossed the domestic record of Shahrukh Khan's 'Happy New Year'. With a screen count of 5,000 across India and an vast hype, it was well expected that the period drama would have a huge opening at the commercial circuits.

On its second day, Thugs Of Hindostan continued its glorious run, despite being unanimously panned by critics. Occupancy rate of Thugs of Hindostan in the theatres reportedly dropped by around 50 percent as compared to the first day.

The movie collected Rs 28 crore (approximately) at the Indian box office on day 2, registering a fall of nearly 50 percent, according to Box Office India. The 2-days total collection at Indian box office of Thugs of Hindostan now stands at around Rs 80 crore.

It was expected to do some mind blowing numbers but negative reviews and poor word of mouth, literally killed the film. However, the film had a bumper opening at the box office, earning Rs 52 crore, including the Tamil and Telugu-dubbed versions.

However, considering the huge fall in its earnings on second day, things might turn worrisome for the producers of the movie.

Suchitra Krishnamoorthi, the actress who shared the screen space with our King of Romance in Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa (1994) had gone to the theatre to watch Thugs Of Hindostan, which also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif & Fatima Sana Shaikh in lead.
