Laal Singh Chaddha – A Major Box Office Flop Despite Aamir Khan’s Star Power:
|Movie Details||Laal Singh Chaddha|
|Lead Actor||Aamir Khan|
|Producers||Aamir Khan Productions, Viacom18 Studios|
|Worldwide Box Office Collection||₹129.64 crores|
|India Net Box Office||₹58.73 crores|
|Overseas Box Office||₹70.91 crores|
Laal Singh Chaddha, the official Hindi adaptation of the classic Hollywood film Forrest Gump, has sadly emerged as one of the biggest flops of 2022.
The Aamir Khan starrer was produced on a lavish budget of ₹180 crores by Aamir Khan Productions and Viacom18 Studios. However, it has posted deeply disappointing box office numbers so far.
As of September 2022, the total worldwide gross collection of Laal Singh Chaddha stands at just ₹129.64 crores, as per media reports. This is far below the recovery mark for such a high budget film.
Out of the total earnings, the India nett box office contribution is a mere ₹58.73 crores which is an outright disaster. The rest ₹70.91 crores came from international markets, but even that was not enough to salvage the film commercially.
So with such a massive underperformance compared to its hefty budget, it is evident that Laal Singh Chaddha is a clear box office flop. There is no doubt about its fate – Laal Singh Chaddha is one of the biggest flops of 2022.
Laal Singh Chaddha has failed despite the immense star power of Aamir Khan who is known for giving some of Bollywood’s biggest hits. The feel-good drama received mixed reviews with praise for Aamir’s performance but criticism for being too loyal to the original.
Weak word-of-mouth, lack of appeal for a faithful remake, average music and competition from other Independence Day releases like Raksha Bandhan are being seen as factors for its failure.
The collections dropped sharply after the poor opening day. As a result, Laal Singh Chaddha has posted huge losses for its producers and emerges as one of the biggest flops of 2022.
