Laal Singh Chaddha Extended Weekend Box Office: Aamir Khan films stay low with Rs 46.25 crore in 5 days


Laal Singh Chaddha marked Aamir Khan’s return to the big screens after four long years. The film was highly anticipated upon its official announcement, months after the release of his last film Thugs Of Hindostan and had been in production for over 3 years. The film’s journey began when Laal Singh Chaddha screenwriter Atul Kulkarni pitched the idea of ​​doing the Indian version of Forrest Gump to Aamir. Aamir took nearly 8 years just to get the remake rights to the movie. Not every effort put into directing the film shows returns to the same degree as the film was unable to put on a show, wherever it came out.

Laal Singh Chaddha has been mounted on a large scale and a lot of effort has been put into making it right. However, the film missed the mark, especially from a box office perspective. The Aamir Khan star opened at an atrociously low Rs. 11.50 cr on day 1, and that too on Raksha Bandhan, which is a partial holiday in India. The movie saw a steep drop on Day 2 and consolidated over the weekend, albeit at very low levels. The numbers for Independence Day are lower than those for the first, third and fourth days, which basically explains the story. The 5-day cume of the film sits at a very low Rs. 46.25 cr. The holiday factor is over, and the movie is set to face a big drop on Tuesday. The lack of competition next week might have helped the content get accepted. But as it stands, the content hasn’t.

The film’s performance overseas was fair, though far from what was expected. The 5 Days Overseas gross is just over $5 million and as the trend suggests, the film could be lucky enough to make $9 million in its first phase. Positive reception in Taiwan and Hong Kong next month could help the film top $10 million, but that again depends on the film’s reception more than anything else. Paramount will place all of its stakes on the reception of China. The reception in China may change the fortunes of this otherwise flopped film.

Take a look at the Indian box office of Laal Singh Chaddha:

Thursday – Rs. 11.50 credits (Raksha Bandhan)
Friday – Rs. 7.25 credits
Saturday – Rs. 9 credits
Sunday – Rs. 10 credits
Monday – Rs. 8.50 cr (Independence Day)
Total = Rs. 46.25 cr

It should be noted that Akshay Kumar led by Raksha Bandhan was not able to do well either and his total of 5 days is lower than Laal Singh Chaddha nationally. Overseas, it’s a 1 horse race, with Laal Singh Chaddha recording Raksha Bandhan’s 5+ numbers. You can watch both movies at a theater near you.
