- Going by the film's YouTube score, TOH beat Rajinikanth's 2.0 numbers
- The final number of TOH trailer views is awaited
- TOH trailer released to mixed response on Thursday
The trailer of Thugs Of Hindostan, with over 27 million views on YouTube (consolidated views from Hindi, Tamil and Telugu videos), has gone insanely viral. The upcoming Yash Raj Films project, featuring Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh in lead roles, has created quite an impact on social media but did it beat the unflinching Baahubali: The Conclusion? Well, no. The trailer of Baahubali 2 crossed over 50 million views - YouTube and Facebook combined - in the first 24 hours when it released last year. The final numbers from Thugs Of Hindostan, which will include clicks from Facebook and Twitter, is awaited, however, it has to cover a tall margin to beat S S Rajamouli's film.
Going by YouTube views only, Thugs Of Hindostan trumped the teaser of Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar's 2.0. The long-awaited teaser of 2.0 released earlier this month and it had 24.8 million views from YouTube (views from Hindi, Tamil and Telugu videos), which is slightly less than the views of Thugs Of Hindostan's final score.
