Aamir’s “Laal Singh Chaddha” which is riding on negative audience word of mouth with the help of overseas collections has grossed 125 crores at the box office worldwide.
The Hindi remake of Forrest Gump (1994) is doing decent business at the box office overseas, so far it has grossed $7.5M (In Indian Rupees 59.88 Cr approx) from there. Contrary to this, the domestic collection of the film is very poor.
Advait Chandan’s directorial is backed by Aamir Khan, Kiran Rao, Jyoti Deshpande, and Ajit Andhare under Aamir Khan Productions and Viacom 18 Studios.
To Face Huge Losses
Aamir’s film is one more addition to the list of the big budget box office flops of this year, domestically after Prithviraj, Shamshera, Radhe Shaym, Attack, etc. It is made with Rs 180 crore budget and seems like will not going to recover the amount.
The total collection of the movie stands at Rs 56.2 crores, day 12 was its first below 1 cr figure at the box office. And now it seems will wrap up under 65 crore lifetime due to the arrival of Liger it will be pulled from many theatres from Thursday onwards.
Box Office Collection Day 13
As we have discussed above Aamir’s film has already tanked at the box office in India and has now become an affair of a few days, the daily earning of the film has gone below 1 crore. From here it will hardly bounce back, Rs 50-60 L came in the cash registers of the film on Tuesday (Day 13).
Will BO China Save LSC?
Recently, it was reported that Aamir’s film was rejected by Netflix owing to the poor performance of the flick at the BO. Now it is being said, that the OTT partner of the film is Voot, they acquired the rights for a very low amount. Following all this, the return on investment of the film will go in negative which means it would have to suffer a huge loss. However, one will wait for LSC’s China release as Aamir enjoys a huge fan base there, and his films do exceptional business in China, though it is remained to be seen whether it turns the film into a profitable venture or not.
