Laal Singh Chaddha succeeds abroad despite failing domestically

Laal Singh Chaddha, directed by Aamir Khan, debuted to dismal reviews domestically, but it is raking in cash abroad and is expected to top all Hindi-language box office records in 2022.

The movie reportedly made $7.5 million, or INR 59 crore, in its opening week, outperforming Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 ($5.88 million) and Gangubai Kathiawadi ($7.47 million).

The movie still needs to open in China for it to break even on the box office; it’s important to remember that Aamir’s earlier movies, including Dangal and Secret Superstar, did extremely well in China.\

Laal Singh Chaddha, directed by Advait Chandan, with Kareena Kapoor and Mona Singh as co-stars, was dubbed “the biggest flop” in Aamir’s career following 2000’s Mela.
