INDIA: After a long wait, Aamir Khan’s much-anticipated film Laal Singh Chaddha made its box office debut. Critics and fans gave the drama-romance film mixed reviews. The film finished its one-day run, and the box office figures for the first theatrical release are now available.
Multiple media estimates show the film had a 15 per cent first-day occupancy. Given the movie’s promotion and celebrity cast, it was thought that the opening day would be a success. Despite the fact that the film’s opening day was a holiday, which could have helped its statistics, the picture underperforms on its first day.
Laal Singh Chaddha opened to low box office numbers
As per various box office reports, the film earned between ₹ 10 and ₹ 11 crores. Thugs of Hindostan, Aamir Khan’s previous film, grossed ₹ 52 crores on its debut day. Despite being a better box office performance than Laal Singh Chaddha, the film was the actor’s biggest disaster. When it comes to Laal Singh Chaddha’s opening numbers, the drama-romance film had the worst start.
Kartik Aaryan’s Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 had the greatest opening on the first day in 2022. The horror-comedy film grossed around ₹ 14 crores at the box office. With ₹ 13 crores at the box office, Akshay Kumar’s ‘Bachchan Pandey took second place, yet it still bombed.
Laal Singh Chaddha is now in third place, with a box office revenue ranging from ₹ 10 to ₹ 11 crores. The film starring Aamir Khan has many days ahead of it that could decide its outcome.
Even in the worst-case scenario, Aamir Khan’s film does well, but Laal Singh Chaddha suffers a significant dip at the box office. The film’s trailer got varied reactions from fans, with some admiring Aamir’s makeover and others preferring the original version of the Hollywood picture.
The upcoming week is jam-packed with holidays, which could boost the film’s box office statistics. Word of mouth will also play a significant role in the film’s collection.
