Over the years, big budget films like Shah Rukh Khan’s Happy New Year, Prabhas’ Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, Salman Khan’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Ranbir Kapoor’s Sanju have opened huge on day 1 at the domestic box office and stunned one and all. However, it was Aamir Khan’s Thugs of Hindostan that broke all the records in 2018 and surpassed each and every Hindi film (original, dubbed or otherwise) to become the highest opening-day grosser of all time. But how much did it collect on day 1? And which other film make it to the list of all- time top opening-day grossers? Well to know that and more, we listed down the top 10 openers and we were surprised to see one trend!
Each and every film that has opened to huge numbers had a superstar associated with it and was one of the most-anticipated films of the year. Most of the top 10 opening day collections, including Thugs of Hindostan‘s collection, came from holiday releases. So clearly, big ticket films releasing on holidays can guarantee you a huge opening, however, what happens post the first weekend clearly depends on the content you provide to the audience. It is important to know that there were a few exceptions as well, so non-festival releases can get you massive opening as well if the plot seems interesting. Anyway, check out the list of the all-time top 10 highest opening day grossers right here!
Can any film releasing in 2019 overtake Thugs of Hindostan to become the highest all time opener at the domestic box office? Well, we will have to wait and watch. In the meantime, stay tuned to Cine Blitz as we get you all the updates from the world of Bollywood and box office right here.

Student of the Year 2 box office collection day 10: Tiger, Ananya, Tara’s film has a lackluster second weekend
Tiger Shroff, Ananya Panday, Tara Sutaria’s Student of the Year 2 showed minimum growth over the second weekend at the box office
Tiger Shroff, Ananya Panday, Tara Sutaria’s Student of the Year 2 was one of the most-exciting releases of the year. However, it failed to take off at the box office. The movie had a decent first week and everyone expected it to show some upward trend in its second weekend at the box office. However, SOTY 2 had a lackluster second weekend. In fact, with minimal growth, the film could just manage to rake in Rs 6.62 crore in three days.
Student of the Year 2 earned Rs 1.62 crore on day 8 (Friday), Rs 2.25 crore on day 9 (Saturday) and Rs 2.75 crore on day 10 (Sunday). With that, SOTY 2 took its collection to Rs 64.52 crore at the domestic box office. With De De Pyaar De, John Wick 3 continuing their run at the box office, we expected Student of the Year 2‘s second week to be low. Meanwhile, what did you think of the movie? Share with us your review of SOTY 2 in the comments section below!
Also, check out our Student of the Year 2 review right here:
Directed by Punit D Malhotra and produced by Dharma Productions, Student of the Year 2 is a sequel to the hit movie, Student of the Year (2012). While the story and performances were decent, the execution lacked the punch. And hence, SOTY 2 got mixed reviews! In the meantime, stay tuned to CineBlitz for more news and updates about Student of the Year 2 right here.
