Laal Singh Chaddha took a lower than expected start at the box office on day 1 and nosedived further on day 2. The advance booking was not promising to begin and the lack of interest showed from the first day itself. The 12 crore nett opening that the Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor starrer took sent shock waves across the trade and film industry and the second day collection of 7.50 crore nett only intensified said shock waves. If Laal Singh Chaadha had any hope of recovering, it needed a big jump today, day 3, Saturday, 13th August. Well the growth has come, but it’s still not as high as desired.
Laal Singh Chaddha box office collection day 3
Laal Singh Chaddha is another big-ticket Bollywood biggie that has the entertainment news trade reeling, but, thankfully, the film has at least managed about a 20% spike on day 3. The thing is this jump isn’t enough because of the massive dip on Friday, and is even lesser than the 30% jump the trade had expected after tracking shows till evening. However, collections fell more than expected for the night shows. The film collected 9 crore nett on the third day, brining hitherto its total to 29.50 crore nett nowhere near enough after 3 days given its budget and star cast.
Laal Singh Chaddha continues to perform at only few centres…
The biggest issue plaguing the Advait Chandan directorial is that it has only spiked, that, too, marginally, in a few territories like Delhi, NCR, East Punjab and Mumbai, and even here, it’s the high-end multiplexes that are driving the numbers for Laal Singh Chaddha. Besides these places, the Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor starrer continues to be extremely poor in all mass circuits, including UP, Bihar, CI, Gujarat and Rajasthan.
