The Laal Singh Chaddha Aamir Khan Show for 4-day, extended Independence Day weekend is likely to generate the most rupees.
Laal Singh Chaddha is an imitation of the 1994 Hollywood classic Forrest Gump. Laal Singh Chaddha traces the evolution of Tom Hanks’ Forrest Gump through the annals of American history. Laal Singh Chaddha is expected to take a similar path, which is clear from the trailer of the new film that just dropped and which stars Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor. It follows a young Aamir Khan with a walking impediment, mental challenges, and problems with the death of his sister, only to conquer the former and take on a life-changing, cross-country marathon.
Aamir Khan strikes deal for Laal Singh Chaddha tickets
A highly placed industry source has informed BollywoodLife that Aamir Khan has signed a contract with high-end multiplex chain PVR that for the first four days of release, ticket prices are locked in at an exorbitant amount and supposedly higher than what the prices were for movies like RRR and KGF 2 or any other Bollywood movie this year during their opening weekends. As Laal Singh Chaddha releases on 11th August, Aamir wants to ensure that it gets the biggest buzz possible during the four-day, extended Independence Day weekend, as he’s not sure how the product will perform beyond that date.
Aamir Khan strikes deal for Laal Singh Chaddha with multiplexes
Sources close to the situation have revealed exclusively to BollywoodLife that Aamir Khan is in final negotiations with PVR and could be soon close to finalizing a deal that would result in PVR keeping the most primetime shows and most in-demand screens available for the debut of his next film, Laal Singh Chaddha. According to the deal, the premiere multiplex chain would give Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor starrer Raksha Bandhan all these prime slots for at least 8-10 days. However, Raksha Bandhan is releasing precisely on the same day as Raksha Kumar’s film.
The film is scheduled for release on 11 August 2022.
