Aamir Khan starrer Laal Singh Chaddha is releasing tomorrow worldwide and it is one of the widest releases ever in the overseas market in addition to domestic markets. The film stars Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Mona Singh, Naga Chaitanya in lead roles.
The film is clashing with Akshay Kumar starrer Rakshabandhan but this clash will affect LSC more in the domestic market than the overseas market. The domestic market will see a clear split between the two films as Rakshabandhan will get more shows due to a shorter running time of 110 minutes and mass family appeal on a family festival occasion.
While Laal Singh Chaddha has the upper hand in urban centers and high-end multiplexes where Aamir Khan holds a big pull. Laal Singh Chaddha will have 3500 screens and 9000 shows in India in all languages.
Overseas market :
When it comes to the overseas market then Aamir Khan has an indisputable record over the last few years starting from 3 Idiots. His records in China are mammoth and even the European to US market responds well to his films.
As per reports, LSC will release in more than 2100 screens overseas which is the biggest ever and the biggest reason is the support of Hollywood studio Paramount plus the value of being a remake of an Oscar-winning film.
This big release size gives a huge opportunity for the film to shatter a few records overseas and it shook to target lifetime number of Dangal.
