Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan starrer Laal Singh Chaddha fell flat at the box office. The film failed miserably to make remuneration as shows went empty and were later canceled. The boycott Laal Singh Chaddha trend was a major aspect of the failure. Mona Singh who played the mother of Aamir Khan in Laal Singh Chaddha claims the film ‘will stay with people for a long time’ despite not performing well at the box office.
In a recent interview with Mid-Day, Mona Singh said, “The film (Laal Singh Chaddha) will reach more people when it releases on Netflix. They will have a different point of view. This isn’t a short-term film that can be labelled hit or flop. It will stay with people for a long time. I am so glad to be a part of such a sweet film.”
Speaking of box office collection she told Hindustan Times, “I am not a filmy person and don’t understand box office at all. This is the third film of my life. What is so satisfying is whoever has seen the film has only good things to say about it. That is what I take from it. I don’t want to think about the short term things like how much money it made, that’s beyond me. I am sure I am part of a movie which will be remembered for a very long time.”
Laal Singh Chaddha is an official adaptation of the Hollywood movie Forrest Gump featuring Tom Hanks. The comedy-drama film also stars Kareena Kapoor and marks the Bollywood debut of Telugu actor Naga Chaitanya. The comedy-drama movie is directed by Advait Chandan and produced by Aamir Khan Productions and Viacom 18.
After receiving disappointment in theaters the movie also struggled in getting digital rights. However, the film is now sold to Netflix at a lower deal of 90 crores. The Hindi remake of Forrest Gump will premiere on Netflix after completing eight weeks in theaters.
