It also features Kareena Kapoor Khan, Mona Singh and Naga Chaitanya. The movie's box office fate will be eyed closely. Meanwhile, the IMDb ratings of Laal Singh Chaddha are very low.
Laal Singh Chaddha receives poor ratings on IMDb
Laal Singh Chaddha has received a rating of 3.5 on IMDb on the basis of 12,000 votes. This is a very poor rating on the popular movie rating site. In fact, Laal Singh Chaddha has become Aamir's lowest-rated film on IMDb. His major flops like Mela (2000), Dhoom 3 (2013) and Thugs of Hindostan (2018) are rated better. This is not a good sign for the makers however, the ratings change as more votes are cast so there are chances that the rating may rise in the coming time.
