Aamir Khan is back and with it the excitement in the industry for his next film. Laal Singh Chaddha. Ticket offices for the film opened on Friday and the response so far has been average. Laal Singh Chaddha has so far sold around 30,000 opening day tickets across India with a total collection of Rs. 75 lakhs.
2 days remaining Laal Singh Chaddha is expected to make an advance of Rs across India. 5 crores for the opening day with weekend advance sales ranging from Rs. 8 crores. That would be the 2nd best progress since the beginning of the pandemic afterwards 83. Similar to 83even Laal Singh Chaddha is high in advance and low in walk-in film. But still, the start will be much better than 83 because Aamir Khan is one of the biggest multiplex stars in Hindi cinema.
Of the total of 30,000 tickets, the three national chains sold around 17,000 tickets, with the remaining 13,000 coming from non-national chains. The advance is rather sluggish outside of the national chains and the film will bring in the spot bookings depending on the holiday factor. The top performing areas for Laal Singh Chaddha so far these are Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Delhi, Punjab and Calcutta. In fact, it has a comfortable edge over its competitor in these spots, Raksha Bandhan and it is these centers that will also give him a head start Raksha Bandhan on the day of publication in the overall scheme of things.
Laal Singh Chaddha should aim for a first day collection in the Rs range. 15 crores and then grows from strength to strength over the extended holiday week due to positive word of mouth.
