EXCLUSIVE Opening Day Box Office Numbers Of Aamir Khan Starrer Laal Singh Chaddha

Aamir Khan starrer Laal Singh Chaddha released today alongside another biggie Rakshabandhan. This clash is much hyped and both the actors are promoting their films as best as they can.

Codes of success:

Aamir Khan comes once in a while and this time he is coming after a gap of 4-5 years. This film seems like an honest one and a remake of a cult Oscar-winning Hollywood film.

But Rakshabandhan will put obstacles as that film take away the family audience in beginning. Still following factors will work for the film –

  • hype of clash will ensure initial
  • string of holidays in opening week will ensure a huge number of footfalls
  • Aamir Khan has big brand value among urban and high-end multiplex going audience
  • Aamir Khan’s films generally get good reviews and great word of mouth can take this film to unbelievable business
    The film started well in advance booking numbers and though it’s not huge but better than most of the recent releases and only second to 83.

Number game:

As per opening trends, film has opened at 30% occupancy and day one prospects are bleak. Film will struggle to cross 13 cr nett day one and realistically 11-12 cr nett day one is on the card unless there is huge growth during the day.

Following are the key numbers for the film :

Release size : 3600 screens
No. of shows : 10000 plus shows all of India
Opening day : 11.50 cr nett
Opening weekend : (4 days) 58 cr nett

Opening week : (8 days) 90 cr nett
Lifetime: 120 cr nett
Verdict : Average to below average

Obviously, after opening day this all depends on word of mouth and going by early reports, it’s not a film that will crash or drop big but even jumps seem improbable. Struggling times ahead!
