Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan Starrer Laal Singh Chaddha has not met the expectations when it comes to box office collection in India. However, the film did better business in overseas markets. Now the film is all set to digital premiere on OTT and the makers are hoping that the film will get the love that is due during the online streaming.
Laal Singh Chaddha will have its digital premiere on Netflix on October 20. Previously Aamir Khan made a statement that the film will release on OTT not before six months of the actual theatrical release. But the makers and the OTT platform have decided to not wait that long and catch the audience who may still be interested in watching the film.
The makers of Laal Singh Chaddha didn’t get the amount that they were expecting from this deal. While they were expecting Rs 150 crore, Netflix offered Rs 80-90 crore. The final deal seems to be somewhere upwards of Rs 100 crore with both Aamir Khan and Netflix mutually agreeing to the terms. It is also reported that Aamir decided to forgo his acting fee for the film, around Rs 100 crore, to shoulder the losses incurred due to the film’s poor box office performance.
Aamir Khan was down and disappointed because of the failure of his film at box office and he decided to take a break from films. However, Aamir is only on a short break before he bounces back and starts working on his upcoming projects.
