Aamir Khan's film became a victim of piracy
A full HD version of 'Lal Singh Chaddha' leaked online a few hours after its release
Actor Aamir Khan's 'Lal Singh Chaddha' has been released in theatres today (August 11). The film is getting mixed reviews from the audience and critics. According to reports, the film has now been leaked online just hours after its release.
According to reports, the full HD version of 'Lal Singh Chaddha' has been leaked on TamilRockers, Filmyzilla, Movierulz, Telegram and many other websites. This may affect the box office collection of the film. In recent times, many films like 'Shamshera', and 'Ek Villain Returns' have also become victims of piracy.
Aamir Khan has returned to the big screen after four years with this film. Apart from Aamir, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Mona Singh and Naga Chaitanya are also in the lead role in 'Lal Singh Chaddha' directed by Advait Chandan. Laal Singh Chaddha is the official Hindi remake of Tom Hanks' Forrest Gump released in 1994.
Along with 'Lal Singh Chaddha', Akshay Kumar's 'Raksha Bandhan' has also been released in theatres. According to reports, due to this clash, both films have a slow start at the box office. Now it has to be seen how much the business of both the films will be in the first weekend.
However, Aamir Khan was ahead of Akshay Kumar in advance booking. 'Lal Singh Chaddha' did a business of about Rs 13 crore in 6 days from advance booking. At the same time, 'Raksha Bandhan' was able to earn only Rs 6 crore in 6 days. Accordingly, only 'Lal Singh Chaddha' can stay ahead of 'Raksha Bandhan' in terms of collection on the first day.
Trade analysts believe that 'Lal Singh Chaddha' made in the budget of 180 crores on the opening day i.e. the first day can earn 15-17 crores and 'Raksha Bandhan' made in the budget of 70 crores can earn 12-14 crores. At the same time, the combined business of both the films can be 30 crores. Now it has to be seen which of the two films will win in this big box office clash.
Apart from Akshay Kumar, 'Raksha Bandhan', directed by Aanand L Rai, also stars Bhumi Pednekar, Saadia Khatib, Sahajmin Kaur, Deepika Khanna and Smriti Shrikant in lead roles.
