The poor run of the Bollywood film continued with earnings going down by 85 per cent and 70 per cent of the of its shows on Tuesday were cancelled.
Laal Singh Chaddha, a Bollywood remake of Hollywood classic Forrest Gump, will earn more than INR 50 crores. Its theatrical run is expected to close at INR 55 crores to INR 57 crores.
It is proving to be a disaster for the filmmakers and Aamir Khan himself who is the mastermind behind the masterpieces Taare Zameen Par and 3 Idiots.
Earlier, the reports of its leading actor compensating the producers after the film became a box office failure were making rounds. However, the production company Viacom 18 refuted them.
“There are no external distributors, it’s being distributed by V18Studios, and no money is lost in the first place,” the Chief Executive Officer of Viacom 18 Ajit Andhare said. “The film is still running in theatres both in India and internationally. This is baseless speculation.”
