Aamir Khan's Laal Singh Chaddha 'rejected' at BO, collects Rs. 45.83 crores in 5 days

Mumbai/IBNS: Aamir Khan's Laal Singh Chaddha has been unable to make an impressive run at the box office with the film garnering only Rs. 45.83 crores so far. 

The long weekend, during which the film was released thanks to Raksha Bandhan and Independence Day, the latter being a national holiday, failed to set cash registers ringing as pointed out by trade analyst Taran Adarsh noted in a social media post.

In a post on Koo, Taran Adarsh shared that the total earnings of the film over five days has failed to cross the first-day earnings of Aamir Khan's last film, Thugs Of Hindostan, which received flak from critics and audience alike.

Sharing details, Taran Adarsh said, “Laal Singh Chaddha is rejected... LSC 5-day total is lower than *Day 1* total of Thugs Of Hindostan [₹ 50.75 cr; Hindi version], do the math... Thu 11.70 cr [Raksha Bandhan], Fri 7.26 cr, Sat 9 cr, Sun 10 cr, Mon 7.87 cr [Independence Day]. Total: ₹ 45.83 cr."

Laal Singh Chaddha is the official Hindi remake of Tom Hanks' Forrest Gump.

It has been directed by Advait Chandan and is collaboratively being produced by Aamir Khan, Kiran Rao and Viacom 18 Motion Pictures.

In Laal Singh Chaddha, Aamir Khan shares screen space with his 3 Idiots co-stars Kareena Kapoor Khan and Mona Singh. It also stars Naga Chaitanya.

The film was released worldwide on August 11.

However, the film has been caught in the middle of a boycott trend that began after a section of the Internet dug out Aamir Khan's 2015 interview, where he said that his ex-wife Kiran Rao had suggested they move out of India owing to "growing intolerance."
