Actor Aamir Khan has taken complete responsibility for the disappointing performance of his film ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ at the box office. He has also apologized to the viewers for not being able to entertain them.
While speaking at the award ceremony of India’s Storytellers Script Contest, Aamir Khan addressed several questions about his recent venture Thugs of Hindustan
Film was released earlier in the month of November on the occasion of Diwali this year. Though film opened with a record braking opening of 50 crores on day one. But unfortunately could not sustain the winning streak at the box office.
According to Boxofficeindia.com, the total collections of the film stood at Rs 139.50 crore after 11 days.
Talking about Thugs of Hindostan’s disappointing performance at the box office, Aamir Khan said, “I would like to take full responsibility for that. You can be sure that we tried our level best. There are people who have liked the film a lot and we would like to thank them. We are happy that they liked the film but that’s a minority. Majority of the people did not like the film and we are aware of the fact. So there is no doubt that we did go wrong. I want to apologize to the viewers who came to watch my film in the theatres as I was not able to entertain them despite trying my best. But those who came with so many expectations did not enjoy the film and I am feeling very bad about it.”
On being asked upon if he had any idea about the reason behind such a response, the actor repiled, “I am not very comfortable talking about these things in public. My film is like my child. So failure is also mine.”
Talking about the film’s release in China, Aamir Khan added, “The audience is free to speak and say what they want to say about me or the film. I am feeling very bad for not entertaining the audience. Next time we will try harder. The China release will be happening next month so let’s see what happens”.
