New Delhi : Despite of negative reviews, Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan starrer Thugs of Hindostan is doing quite well in the box-office. The movie which was expected to give a big bang because of casting superstars like Aamir Khan and Big B seems to have disappointed the audiences. Yet, it seems to be breaking the records. But, in a major setback for the makers, sources confirmed that the full movie in HD has been leaked by a website, which is known for having a host of pirated movies.

Now, a big question rises regarding the box-office collection. It has been reported that fans have requested the authorities to take strict action against the website. Earlier, the website also leaked Tamil actor Vijay’s Sarkar following which Tamil Film Producers Council (TFPC) issued a warning saying that the site must be stopped from releasing pirated versions. The association also urged theater owners to employ personnel inside the halls to check if audiences are recording films on phones.

Aamir Khan's film Thugs of Hindostan is set in the pre-Independence era also has Fatima Sana Shaikh and Katrina Kaif in it. With easy-to-guess story and poor execution, it will probably be the biggest failure of the year. To inform, this is the second time, Aamir Khan and Vijay Krishna Acharya are collaborating with each other. Earlier, the duo worked together in the third installment of the Dhoom franchise, Dhoom 3.

Meanwhile, Aamir Khan took social media to send a message”A journey which has been so special and memorable for me. Each one of you has done such a mind-blowing job, and I am so happy to be a part of this team. We have no idea how successful it will be, but irrespective of the fate of the film, I want to thank you all for a very fulfilling two years. I think we can all be satisfied that we have given it our best,'' he wrote.
