New Delhi: Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha has been attached to a lot of controversies even before the release of the film. Even though it has failed to impress the audience, the movie continues to create a buzz on social media. Earlier, it was reported that the film would make digital release six months after its theatrical release. However, as per India Today, owing to the poor performance at the box office, the makers have decided to release the film early on Netflix. The makers of the film stated that the movie will premiere on Netflix on October 20.
India Today reported that the makers of Laal Singh Chaddha signed a deal with Netflix after a hustle. Previous reports state that Aamir Khan had demanded an approximately Rs 150 crore deal with Netflix for streaming rights. However, the lack of poor performance at the box office, the deal was negotiated for the cost of nearly Rs 80-90 crore.
According to a report by Bollywood Hungama, Aamir Khan has waived his acting fees which are around Rs 100 crore to “absorb all the losses” of the film that faced all boycott calls on social media. A close source stated, “He gave four years to the film but has not made a single penny from it. His opportunity cost on Laal Singh Chaddha is upwards of Rs. 100 crores, but he has decided to absorb all the losses taking the complete blame of failure on himself.”
Last month, Laal Singh Chaddha has joined the list of movies that have failed to create an impression on people. This list includes Anek, Liger, Dhaakad, Jersey, Heropanti 2, Runway 34, Jayeshbhai Jordaar, and Raksha Bandhan, among several others.
Directed by Advait Chandan, Laal Singh Chaddha is the Hindi adaptation of the Academy Award-winning movie Forest Grump featuring Tom Hanks. The film starred Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan in the lead role along with Chaitanya Akkineni, Mona Singh, Manav Vij, Ahmad Ibn Umar, and Hafsa Ashraf in pivotal roles. It made a theatrical release on August 11 and earned over 125 crores.
