  • Aamir Khan starrer Laal Singh Chaddha and Akshay Kumar’s Raksha Bandhan slated for release on August 11.
  • According to BookMyShow, Laal Singh Chaddha got 54% more interest than Akshay Kumar’s Rakshabandhan.
  • Aamir Khan’s films reported a collection of ₹280 cr per film based on the average of his last three films.

Laal Singh Chaddha is the most anticipated Bollywood movie in 2022, according to
imdb ratings, followed by Akshay Kumar’s Raksha Bandhan. Both films come out on Thursdays, during the August pre-Independence Day long weekend.

Laal Singh Chaddha is featured on more than 350 screens from INOX Leisure, one of India’s largest theater chains with 692 screens in 73 cities. It is a remake of the 1994 classic Tom Hanks movie Forrest Gump.

“We expect Laal Singh Chaddha to have one of the best post-pandemic openings. It can earn a minimum of ₹18-20 crore (on opening day). The same goes for Akshay Kumar’s Raksha Bandhan,” said Rajender Singh Jyala, INOX Leisure’s head of programming.

Jyala also said that Bollywood is expected to grow in the second quarter of 2022 with mega movies like Laal Singh Chaddha, Raksha Bandhan, Vikram Vedha, Brahamastra, Pathaan and Ram Setu.

Both Bollywood and cinemas have been waiting for a blockbuster as most of the movies that have made big money this year are either Southern multilingual or Hollywood movies.

However, the official site of BookMyShow revealed that 54% of the Indian audience is more interested in watching Laal Singh Chaddha than Raksha Bandhan.

Even if it gets the opening as predicted by Inox, Aamir’s latest film will not live up to the many superhits he has delivered in the past.

“Aamir Khan’s films have reported a collection of ₹280 cr per film, averaged over his last three films as a lead actor. So if the above (opening day) estimate of Laal Singh Chadha is reported, it will be considered below par given the scale of the film,” said Karan Taurani, senior VP and analyst at marketing firm Elara Capital.

This month, Ranbir Kapoor starrer Shamshera posted a dismal performance as it collected just ₹45 crore. Another recent release, Ek Villain, reported a collection of ₹38 crore until yesterday, Elara Capital revealed.
