Thugs Of Hindostan has become the 34th film since 1990 to break the opening day record. It means 34 films over the last 28 years. Now it remains to be seen which film is the one to break this record.

Khalnayak (1993) and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001) would be the pick of the lot considering how they broke the records and the time they held them for. This Thugs Of Hindostan record is a big one as its beaten the previous record holders by a distance but its time which tells how great a record is. Also the game is about holidays nowadays whereas the likes of Khalnayak and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham set on a normal day.

The list of opening day record holders since 1990 are as follows.


Aaj Ka Arjun (1990)

Hum (1991)

Saudagar (1991)

Khuda Gawah (1992)

Kshatriya (1993)

both Salman & Srk have 6 movies out of this
Salman solo - Dabangg, Bodyguard, ETT & PRDP - 4 movies
Multistarrer - Karan Arjun & Biwi no.1 - 2 movies
Srk solo - Koyla, MHN & HNY - 3 movies
Srk multistarrer - Karan Arjun, Trimurti & KKKG 3 movies ..
Salman still has upper hand in Record Solo openers 4 Vs 3 ... p

Many movies of SRK missed this list due to releasing on Diwali day.

VZ, OSO, RA.One and few others I guess, also CE missed due to PP.

So in reality, Domination level - SRKING

3 missed opportunities for SRK - veer zara, oso n ra 1, all these were diwali day releases unlike hny n thugs of hindostan, that's why cudn't create day 1 record but ultimately had record weekend/single day. Had they released on post diwali day, SRK wud have had 9 opening day records, much higher than both aamir n salman.....chennai express too missed it just by a whisker only due to those paid previews......so that makes it 10 for SRK

Aamir also missed with Pk dangal ... They were a week before christmas....... So very unlucky.
Dangal had it been not for cash crunch it would be crossed 400cr easily.......
Btw, 400cr is more than last 4-5 films of Shahrukh combined.
