With an overall 70-75% occupancy across the country, it registered the opening business of 52.25 crores (50.75 crores from Hindi only) and become the biggest opener of all time in Bollywood.
On the next day i.e. Friday, Thugs Of Hindostan recorded a heavy drop of 44.02% and raked the business of 29.25 crores (28.25 crores from Hindi only).
