It has been 13 days since 'Thugs Of Hindostan' hit the screens. The film became a talk of the town for so many reasons, be it the budget or the first-ever collaboration between Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan. The film which was released on 8th November is again back in the light.
After a massive debacle at the box-office, now the cinema owners are demanding a complete refund for the film. The film received utterly bad reviews both from critics and the viewers. The film which was made on the estimated budget of around 300 crores failed to make it big at the box-office. The film did a mere business of around 150 crores in the 13 days run.
Reportedly, theatre owners have lost around 50% of their investment in the movie and now they want a complete refund from Yash Raj Films for their loss. Apart from Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan, the film also starred Fatima Sana Sheikh, Lloyd Owen and Katrina Kaif.
The film which was earlier speculated to be the Indian adaptation of the Hollywood series of films Pirates Of The Caribbean is said to be inspired by Philip Meadows Taylor’s 1839 novel ‘Confessions of a Thug’ and is about a gang who posed a serious challenge to the British Empire in India during the early 19th century.
The film was directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya and it was the second time when he collaborated with Aamir Khan (the first one being Dhoom 3). Even Dhoom 3 failed to be a critic's favorite but it managed to make some really good bucks at the box-office.
Earlier, when the other two biggies Shahrukh and Salman failed to impress the audiences in their movies, they have paid the compensation to the theatre owners. Now it would be interesting to see that Aamir will be paying off their money or not.
