Aamir Khan's Thugs of Hindostan is touted as a big Bollywood release in Diwali. The film that also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh in the lead roles is a period drama set during the British era. Yash Raj Films (producer) and Aamir want their movie to earn a business like never before. While the tickets rates are expected to rise during the festive time, the makers have asked their distributors to hike ticket rates at least 10% more than Ranbir Kapoor's Sanju. This is a brilliant business move to make maximum profits and mint huge money at the box office.

Popular trade analyst, Taran Adarsh also took to his Twitter account to reveal how wide will its release be in India. According to his information, Thugs of Hindostan will release in over 5000 screens in India. Out of which, 4500 are Hindi screens and the rest are Tamil and Telegu. Yea, it's a huge feat but the number is far lesser than what Baahubali 2 had achieved in its year.

Prabhas' Baahubali 2 opened to 6500 screens alone in India. And the number is taken into consideration after adding Hindi and regional screens. Of course, SS Rajamauli's release was much anticipated and had a huge fan base even in Northern India. With Aamir's TOH, the craze is restricted to Bollywood and the movie may or may not do wonders in South India.
