After a break of four years, Aamir Khan surely would have expected better theatrical prospects from his drama, Laal Singh Chaddha. According to early estimates, the Advait Chandan film had collected in the range of Rs. 11.00 to 12.50 crores. It was a very poor show for the film across the board with the national multiplex chains being the saving grace.

Laal Singh Chaddha Box Office Estimate Day 1: Takes a VERY POOR start; LOWEST opening for Aamir Khan in the past 13 years shocks the industry

The opening is worse than the Kabir Khan directorial, 83, and the Farhad Samji film, Bachchhan Paandey, which speaks volumes of how much it underperformed on the opening day. The performance in mass belts was dismissal, to say the least, and given the film reports, we don’t anticipate Laal Singh Chaddha to do any sort of business outside the metros.

The opening of Laal Singh Chaddha has sent shock waves across the Hindi film industry, and everyone has gone into a state of rethinking and restrategizing. An Aamir Khan film, even in the worst of scenario, should have opened at Rs. 15 crores. With such a start, the message from the audience is loud and clear – make good big screen worthy cinema.

The trailer of Laal Singh Chaddha was highly criticized and that was followed by a poor marketing campaign, which led to minimal pre-release buzz and hence the very poor start. It’s a week full of holidays and hence, Laal Singh Chaddha still has some chance to do face-saving numbers, but the opening has put an end to the dreams of it doing big numbers at the box office.
