Thugs Of Hindostan is 15 crore nett short of Prem Ratan Dhan Payo after five days. Prem Ratan Dhan Payo was a film which had the same release as Thugs Of Hindostan. It was released on Thursday which was the big Diwali holiday and had an extended four day weekend just like Thugs Of Hindostan.
Prem Ratan Dhan Payo was a HIT but did not found appreciation all over and was mainly liked in the Hindi belt. But if we take the scenario of mid level audience appreciation and going by Prem Ratan Dhan Payo then Thugs Of Hindostan should have done 175 crore nett over five days going by the initial. The biggest difference is Monday as Prem Ratan Dhan Payo held up very well in Gujarat, Rajasthan, CP Berar, CI and Maharashtra (outside Mumbai and Pune).
Thugs Of Hindostan has managed to score over Prem Ratan Dhan Payo in Bihar, Assam and Tamil Nadu / Kerala over the five day period. Bihar is mainly because the market is grown over the last three years and the other two do very limited business anyway for Hindi films.
