The two most awaited movies of the year Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha and Akshay’s Rakshabandhan are struggling in theatre. According to a recent report Aamir’s Laal Singh, Chaddha came crashing down on Tuesday, which was its first working day at the box office. The film had collected ₹45.83 crores in its five-day extended weekend but earned just ₹2 crores on Tuesday. In contrast, Aamir's Thugs Of Hindostan had an opening day collection of ₹50.75 crores in 2018.
Meanwhile, On Tuesday, A Trade Analyst wrote, “that the film has been ‘rejected’ and could not benefit from the Rakshabandhan and Independence Day holidays. Sharing the collections of the five-day weekend, he wrote on Twitter, “Laal Singh Chaddha is rejected... # LSC's five-day total is lower than day 1 total of Thugs Of Hindostan [ ₹50.75 crore; Hindi version], do the math... Thursday ₹11.70 crores [Raksha Bandhan], Friday ₹7.26 crore, Saturday ₹9 crore, Sunday ₹10 crores, Monday ₹7.87 crores [Independence Day]. Total: ₹45.83 crores. India biz (business).”
Speaking about Laal Singh Chaddha, It marks Aamir's return to the silver screen after more than 3 years. His earlier film Thugs of Hindostan had opened big due to advance bookings and curiosity around it, but fell flat after a week, due to negative reviews. Some called for a boycott of Laal Singh Chaddha, some also got offended by the film for allegedly portraying the Indian Army in a bad light and hurting religious sentiments, as claimed in a statement by a Delhi-based lawyer.
Laal Singh Chaddha also stars Kareena Kapoor, Naga Chaitanya, and Mona Singh in pivotal roles. The Film has failed to win the Box office Battle and is struggling in theatres.
