Aamir Khan starrer Laal Singh Chaddha has hit the theatres and has opened to a mixed response. The film, also starring Kareena Kapoor Khan and Mona Singh, is an official adaptation of Forrest Gump. As per early estimates released by Box Office India, the film has taken a slow start. The morning shows have reportedly seen a 15-20% occupancy, which is a worrying figure for an Aamir Khan film. The opening day figures are pegged to be between 10-15 crore, with the maximum buzz coming from metro cities.
LAAL SINGH CHADDHA TAKES A SLOW START
The film was written by Atul Kulkarni and directed by Advait Chandan. Laal Singh Chaddha is reportedly performing better in Delhi NCR and South on Day one. Mumbai, West Bengal and East Punjab too have seen a positive occupancy rate. The buzz is picking up in Punjab given that Aamir plays Sardar in the movie. However, the mass belts which includes UP and Bihar is relatively dull. The recently released Ek Villain Returns showed better buzz in these areas, as per BO reports.
ABOUT LAAL SINGH CHADDHA
Laal Singh Chaddha faced a lot of controversy even before its release. There was a Twitter trend on boycotting the film, over statements made by Aamir and Kareena in the past. Aamir has even apologised to the audience and requested them to watch the film in the theatres.
As per the initial audience reaction, the film got divided reviews. While a action is all praise for the film and its heartwarming story, another section can’t seem to enjoy Aamir’s performance.
