If you are planning to buy a ticket for Thugs of Hindostan, be prepared to have your wallets (online and leather) get a few more bucks lighters. Thugs of Hindostan, that stars Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Amitabh Bachchan in the lead, is off to a roaring start when it is all set to release on November 8. Trade experts are predicting a Rs 40 crore plus opening day collections for the film, which make sense since it is an Aamir Khan magnum opus and releasing during Diwali in more than 7000 screens. Thugs of Hindostan Box Office: Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan's Magnum Opus Gets 7000 Screens Worldwide; Over Two Lakh Tickets Sold in Advance Bookings.

There are a couple of conjectures about the high ticket prices. There are speculations that the makers would try to capitalise on the extended holiday weekend and make as much money out of this period, in case the movie turns out to be disappointing. Secondly, Thugs of Hindostan is made on a bigger budget compared to a usual Bollywood film and hence, these ticket prices serve as a method for the producers to recover the costs in a faster way.

Recently when Aamir Khan was asked about the high ticket prices during a media interaction, he replied, "I can understand. It is an expensive film. Personally, I am always for tickets to be cheaper. I think we should have theatres that are economical and people should go and watch the film in the theatre. It is my dream that in India you should have theatres that are economical, middle group and posh. Everyone should have the opportunity to access the film and I hope that happens."
