Earlier this month we saw the release of the much talked about, heavily promoted and keenly anticipated release Laal Singh Chaddha. Directed by Advait Chandan the film starring Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan was expected to set new collections benchmarks at the box office post the pandemic. However, in what can only be termed as shocking, Laal Singh Chaddha received rejection on almost every front. With less than appreciative critic reviews, and highly negative audience feedback the film has been struggling at the box office. In fact, after a low-key opening week, the second weekend business of Laal Singh Chaddha has continued to remain low.
In this box office report, we look at the second weekend collections of Laal Singh Chaddha while comparing the same to previous release of 2022. Collecting Rs. 4.55 cr the film has emerged as the tenth highest second weekend grosser of 2022. Shockingly, the dismal performance of Laal Singh Chaddha has placed the film below previous releases like Samrat Prithviraj, which collected Rs. 7.25 cr, Ek Villain Returns, which collected Rs. 6.02 cr, and Runway 34, which collected Rs. 4.75 cr. On the other hand, Laal Singh Chaddha, which was expected to be one of the biggest money-spinners of the year, has managed to surpass certain other releases like Badhaai Do, which collected Rs. 4.29 cr, Raksha Bandhan that collected Rs. 3.90 cr, and Jhund which collected Rs. 2.60 cr.
As of now, Laal Singh Chaddha continues to run but at a much diminished rate. In fact, trade predictions state that the film, which has managed to, collected Rs. 55.53 cr will struggle even more to reach the Rs. 60 cr mark. In fact, as per estimates, Laal Singh Chaddha could end its theatrical run below the Rs. 75 cr mark.
