first of all ..... the way they have answered questions ...is clear they know absolutely nothing.
secondly ..... aamir khan is far from being india's biggest star.... indian movies release in dozens of circuits / territories ..... and out of which he's number 1 in one territory called china.... and in INDIA/US his movies have been working only due to christmas.....
i mean just check talaash. a non christmas release.
and yrf is putting so much money on aamir khan even when his movie is not releasing on two weeks of holidays ..... all that money they'll earn from TZH will come to their rescue ...after their loss from thugs show up.
thugs is a guaranteed huge FLOP. movie budget will be over 250cr and it will earn anywhere between 170cr-190cr with victor as director.
its opening day will be decent like 35cr-37cr and opening weekend wed-fri will be 75cr-80cr
