The earnings of movie Thugs of Hindostan have dropped drastically following the severe backlash the movie got from the audience for its poor story-line and direction. The movie got such bad reviews from almost every quarter, that most have decided not to watch it in theatres. But as per actor Suniel Shetty, the movie should be given a chance to perform and that nowadays everyone consider themselves film critics.

Thugs of Hindostan, the big budget multi-starrer from the Yash Raj Films stable starring Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan, saw a big drop in box office numbers on day two because of negative word of mouth publicity. Suniel, who was interacting with the media at the success party of the first season of Mud Skull Adventure Race along with Sahil Khan on Saturday in Mumbai, said it’s unfortunate the movie is receiving such criticism.

“I feel it’s really unfortunate that the film is receiving criticism because I have a whole lot of friends who have gone and seen Thugs of Hindostan and they loved the film. It’s a ‘paisa vasool’ (value for money) film because of its scale and canvas,” IANS quoted him as saying.

“We sometimes expect a lot from a film and nowadays, everyone out there consider themselves as film critics and they think they know all about entertainment but I think we should give an opportunity to every film to get a smooth release and then audience should give their opinion. We shouldn’t criticise it so much that it gets pulled out from theaters,” he stated.

Suniel, who has worked with Shah Rukh Khan in Main Hoon Na, also talked about the trailer of movie Zero, saying, “I loved the trailer of Zero and I think this film is going to be Shah Rukh’s biggest film. I genuinely feel he has performed brilliantly. The kind of attitude Shah Rukh has been able to bring in his character despite being complex is really amazing. I have a very strong feeling that the film is going to create magic onscreen.”

Suniel was last seen onscreen in A Gentleman along with Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez.
