The epic action-adventure, starring Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Katrina Kaif in the lead roles, has collected a little over Rs 143 crore in its 10-day run at the box-office, a performance clearly not at par with expectations the trade pundits had from the film. However, the collections of the film fell to nearly half on day, at around Rs 28 crore, as reviews started coming in. The film had earned Rs 50 crore on its opening day, but the earnings slipped second day onwards after reviewers trashed the film. It raked in Rs 5.55 crore in its second weekend and now stands with the grand total of Rs 145.95 crore in the domestic circuit.

Thugs of Hindostan made just Rs 5.25 crore in its second weekend, which is lower than Shah Rukh Khan's Fan and Salman Khan's Tubelight. According to Boxofficeindia, Fan had made around Rs 7.75 crore in its second weekend whereas Tubelight had collected around Rs 7.50 crore. As all the previous releases of Aamir Khan did wonders at the box office and considering the fact that director Vijay Krishna Acharya and Aamir Khan Collaboration in Dhoom 3 proved to be a tremendous profitable, exhibitors were expecting same kind of returns with Thugs. Referring to the contrasting numbers, Mr Adarsh tweeted to say: "After a dismal extended Week 1, Thugs Of Hindostan went further downhill in Weekend 2". Sure, the decline was imminent, but, in this case, it's a CRASH. "Reduced to 1800 screens in Week 2 [5000 screens in Week 1], Thugs Of Hindostan will struggle to stay afloat on weekdays", Mr Adarsh tweeted. "We hope our message reaches out to Aamir Khan and YRF, who will help us get back our money from the territory distributors", reports Bollywood Hungama.
