After Laal Singh Chaddha’s lukewarm box office performance, reports claimed that the film’s distributors had asked the producers for compensation.

Aamir KhanLaal Singh Chaddha’s latest film has not worked as expected at the box office. As Aamir’s first release in four years and backed by a major studio, it was expected to be knocked out of the park in terms of ticket sales. But in the four days since its release, the film’s revenue has been rather disappointing. Recently, reports even claimed that certain distributors had sought compensation from producers for the losses they had allegedly suffered. Now the production house behind the film has responded to these messages. Also read: Laal Singh Chaddha box office: Aamir Khan’s movie won’t beat Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2

Laal Singh Chaddha was released in theaters on Thursday to mark Raksha Bandhan. The movie deserved 38 crore in the domestic market in the four-day opening weekend, a disappointing figure. In comparison, Kartik Aaryan’s Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2–a much smaller movie deserved 55 crore in the first three days three months ago. Industry insiders have said Laal Singh Chaddha is not allowed to cross the border A 100 crore barrier in domestic revenue, something all Aamir movies have been doing for the past 15 years. This led to reports that distributors are dealing with losses and have asked the production house Viacom 18 for compensation.

Responding to this, Ajit Andhare, CEO of Viacom 18, told ETimes: “There are no third-party distributors, it is distributed by V18Studios and no money is lost in the first place. The film is still running in theaters both in India and international. This is baseless speculation.”

Most major production houses and studios in India have their own distribution networks. They take care of the distribution directly in the major centers and for smaller cities they give the film to sub-distributors on a commission basis. Laal Singh Chaddha has also been released with the same model. The report also quoted an exhibitor as saying, “Most studios don’t sell their territory, it’s always distributed directly. Even if we try to ask for the rights, it is too expensive for us. And the reports of distributors asking for money in the case of Laal Singh Chaddha are unfounded as the producers are only distributors of the film.”

Laal Singh Chaddha, directed by Advait Chandan, is the official Hindi remake of Tom Hanks’ Forrest Gump. The film also stars Kareena Kapoor, Mona Singh and Naga Chaitanya. Laal Singh Chaddha has received mixed reviews from critics, who have called it a faithful adaptation but criticized the acting and screenplay. The film has also faced calls for a boycott of a particular trend section condemning the film on Twitter weeks prior to its release.
