Q. Thugs Of Hindustan will also be releasing in Tamil & Telugu and Aamir Khan is a big pull especially in Chennai and Hyderabad so can that version of the film pull in 4 or 5 crore nett day one.

A. Bethi

A. When Dhoom 3 is only Hindi film has to go over 1 crore nett on day one then what chance is there for 4-5 crore nett. There is no market there for Hindi films even if dubbed. Padmaavat till date has done best but its only 13 crore nett apprx lifetime. The likes of Bajirao Mastani, Happy New Year and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo fell apart. A Hum Aapke Hain Kaun in 1994 has higher business than these lot in its Telugu version. Infact Hum Aapke Hain Kaun and Maine Pyaar Kiya are the only films which we can call SUPER HIT and HIT respectively in dubbed versions and both were Telugu only. Another point Aamir Khan pull is better in Bangalore than Chennai or Hyderabad.

HAHK collected 5.02 cr in its dubbed version in 1994. At that time ATP is around 10 rs. If adjusted in today's time its gross fig. Is 75 cr and nett is 65 cr. That is a very big number.
