Thank God, directed by Indra Kumar and starring Ajay Devgn, Sidharth Malhotra, and Rakul Preet Singh, was released in theatres on Diwali. Thank God was Ajay Devgn's fourth theatrical release and his second as a leading man after Runway 34. The film clashed with Ram Setu on Govardhan Pooja day, which is widely regarded as the busiest ticketing day of the year. On Diwali, the audience's second pick was Thank God, but Ram Setu remained the #1 choice. Both films had minimal advances but reasonable to strong spot-booking activity throughout the day.
Thank God, the company launched lukewarm day-one statistics ranging from Rs. 8.25 crore to Rs. 9.15 crore net. The three largest multiplex chains each donated Rs. 3.79 crores. These statistics are adequate in normal circumstances but not particularly impressive given that the film was released on Govardhan Pooja day's most important day of the year. Despite being a two-hero film with a worldwide topic, Thank God did not make the top five openers in 2022. To make an impact at the box office, the picture must perform well during the Diwali season. Thank God's occupancy hovered around the 25% level for the day, making it one of the lowest occupancies for an A-list picture in a long time. With a combined total of Rs. 23 crore net for the two Hindi releases, it is clear that both films have a lot of work ahead of them.
