Amir Khan's and Amitabh's Thugs Of Hindostan Should Break All Indian Film Records

I think Amir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan's long awaiting Thugs of Hondostan is going to break all time Indian box office records. Currently the record is held by Amir Khan's Dangal which has made 300 to 310 million us dollars (2000 to 2100 crosses indian rupees). This I won't be surprised if crosses 400 or 500 million us dollars. There are many reasons why I think so. The most important reason, of course, is that you are getting 2 greatest Indian actors together competing in act in 2 different very string characters - Amir Khan and Amitabh. They have never worked together in the past, and both of their fans would love to find out who acted better (a very subjective call though). Second the plot is very near and dear to Indians, and all the Indian sub-continent people - the British invasion of India and how some natives fought for freedom. This plot alone would draw many into the theater. Third, the animation or CGI looked very top class to me from the trailer. Fourth, in such a heavy weight topic, enough comedy and commercial strings like Katrina Kaif, have been mixed well. Let's see does it do, once it comes out in the theater at November 8th.
