Laal Singh Chaddha Box Office Report

"Laal Singh Chaddha had a low first day in the 10-11 crore nett though with a pick up post the afternoon it managed to get in double digits but it will just about. No doubt the number is low as its come on a holiday as well though its not a huge holiday but when a film does not cater to the youth or mass then you cant really expect big opening numbers in todays scenario.," reported Box Office India.

It is being projected that the film's box office earnings will be the lowest for an Aamir Khan film in recent times. "Laal Singh Chaddha has taken a slow start of 15-20% and the opening numbers coming across India are likely to shock the film industry but with the trends of business over the past 4 months its not really shocking but just disappointing that the audience has kept away from the film initially," stated another BOI report.
