New Delhi: Thugs of Hindostan is the big Diwali release of the year and boasts of a huge star cast including Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh, each with a huge fan following of their own. Film trade analysts are in no doubt that the film will get the cash registers ringing this Diwali. The makers however, have decided to raise the price of tickets, so as to justify the massive budget of the film that is made on a large scale.

The advance booking of the film, which opened on Saturday, is already hinting at houseful theatres with about 2 lakh tickets being sold on the first day itself, as reported by Boxofficeindia.com. The report also states that the film has already surpassed Tiger Zinda Hai, Sanju and Avengers - Infinity War though it’s still lagging behind Baahubali - The Conclusion in advance booking.

Film exhibitor Akshaye Rathi claims the film will smash the 100 crore mark within three days of its release. He says, “First, the day after Diwali is always considered the best day of the year for the release of a film. Second, look at the elements that have come together in this film: Aamir, Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina, YRF, the spectacle – all of these put together make it a very exciting package for people to come and watch in cinemas.”

“Third, the ticket price that the movie would be fetching will be among the highest that has ever been for any Hindi movie. That will eventually give the film a spike in the figures to come. By Saturday, it will easily run past the 100 crore mark,” he adds.
