Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan starrer Laal Singh Chaddha was one of the most talked about movies of the year. However, ever since its release, somehow the buzz around the movie subsided and the #Boycott trend spread like a wildfire. This caused a huge loss for the film business. However, LSC’s fate changed after international numbers came in.
LSC got a disastrous number at the domestic box office collection, where it collected not even Rs 60 crore. Even the star value of the film couldn’t save it.
But Aamir Khan’s film Laal Singh Chaddha has been doing quite well in the international market. The film has earned more than Gangubai Kathiawadi, The Kashmir Files and Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. Its total collection at the international box office has been Rs 63 crore (close to 8 million $).
Film crossed the lifetime gross of Vikram (£780,000) in the UK. The Aamir Khan starrer is now the 3rd highest grossing Indian film in the UK this year with a total gross of £802,000 till date.
Following are the top Indian grossers post pandemic in UK:

LSC has legs to inch close to RRR and finish as 2nd highest grosser though it still far away. Overall it’s a fair performance by film in overseas.
