Aamir Khan, on the boycott, calls for “Laal Singh Chaddha”
Laal Singh Chaddha, starring Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor, had a weak box office debut. Only Rs 11 crore has been made from it domestically. Fans were dismayed by the movie’s opening day numbers when it premiered to mixed reviews. A particular group of individuals advocated for a boycott of Laal Singh Chadda before the movie opened in theaters. Has the online trend changed the movie’s BO performance? Experts provide their opinions.
Laal Singh Chaddha, according to movie exhibitor Akshaye Rathi, is a word-of-mouth movie. The statistics stand as they do. But also consider the genre of the movie. It’s obvious that this is a word-of-mouth movie rather than an explosive opener,” he remarked.
Rathi said several of Aamir’s movies, including Dangal, Dhoom 3, and Thugs of Hindostan, were made to have intense opening weekends at the box office.
However, movies like this and Secret Superstar are inherently made to spread by word of mouth, start strong, and then get better and better.
