Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan's Laal Singh Chaddha and Akshay Kumar-Bhumi Pednekar's Raksha Bandhan clashed at the box office on Thursday. While the former is an adaptation of Forrest Gump, the latter is a social drama. Since Laal Singh Chaddha and Raksha Bandhan released on Raksha Bandhan yesterday, they managed to open their accounts at the box office with a decent figure.
Despite the 'Boycott Laal Singh Chaddha' trend, Aamir and Kareena's film caught the attention of the audience. The Advait Chandan directorial reportedly collected Rs. 12 crores at the box office on Thursday.
Amid the 'Boycott Raksha Bandhan' trend, the film sustained well at the box office. The Aanand L Rai film also starring Sadia Khateeb, Deepika Khanna, Smrithi Srikanth and Sahejmeen Kaur collected Rs. 8.20 crores.
All eyes are now on the weekend collection of Laal Singh Chaddha and Raksha Bandhan.
