Laal Singh Chaddha, starring Aamir Khan and directed by Advait Chandan, has been one of the most talked about releases of recent times. The remake of Forrest Gump, the film that also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, has received much anticipation before its release. However, the question at the moment is whether Laal Singh Chaddha will entice the audience to make it to theaters.

Laal Singh Chaddha is reportedly off to a slow start and occupancy on morning shows is between 15-20%. This gloomy start can be attributed to the fact that, despite the hype, the public has been skeptical about spending the time and money to see movies in theaters. This phenomenon has become more apparent after the pandemic, as audiences prefer to hold back movie theaters based on reviews and word of mouth. In fact, the metro circuit dominated by multiplexes has given a slightly better response to the film compared to areas dominated by overcrowding, where openings were in the single digits. Based on the available data, it seems that the morning show engagement is the lowest for Aamir Khan as 3 Idiots has caused a stir in the industry.

Compared to other premieres, Raksha Bandhan, Aamir Khan’s leading man Laal Singh Chaddha has seen lower ticket sales rates in Tier II and Tier III cities. In fact, Raksha Bandhan, which has a higher penetration in such markets, seems to have gained a slight advantage over Lal Singh Chaddha.

However, even with this low-key debut, all is not lost for Laal Singh Chaddha. Judging from recent releases, Laal Singh Chaddha will have to rely heavily on positive words. Despite the mixed response to the film, business remains optimistic and states that Laal Singh Chaddha’s business will definitely see growth from overnight. The reason behind this is that the movie enjoys a long weekend with Raksha Bandhan and the Independence Day festivities increasing in the movie collections.
