Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha has no buyers for OTT release

Laal Singh Chaddha had to make a quick, unexpected trip. In just a few short days, the movie that had just been released had completely disappeared from theatres. LSC, which had Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan in the major roles, was anticipated to earn approximately 300 crores. The picture did reach its half-century mark, nevertheless, 8 days after its debut. The film’s producers decided to compete with Akshay Kumar’s Raksha Bandhan to capitalise on the long weekend.

Both movies are doomed at the box office, despite their release over the Raksha Bandhan and Independence Day weekends.

However, it appears that Laal Singh Chaddha is still having trouble at the box office. The Aamir Khan-starring movie is reportedly working very hard to recruit customers for its impending debut on the OTT platform.

According to a report in Mid-day, the Laal Singh Chaddha producers have requested Rs 150 crore and a 6-month window. The streaming behemoth reportedly made them an offer of Rs 50 crore in exchange for a shorter six-month timeframe. Aamir Khan requested Rs. 125 crores after being told 50 crores. It’s been reported that the major streaming service has lost interest in buying the rights for its OTT digital debut.

“At present, 42 days is the time gap that the Kerala film chambers have agreed to before releasing a film on OTT. But, many are releasing their films on OTT platforms much before the agreed-upon time. And the film chambers are unable to respond to this situation. So, we have decided if a film is released on OTT before the agreed-upon time, the FEUOK will take action against the stars and the directors of that film,” Aamir Khan said earlier.

“One of the reasons primarily I think the curiosity of going to theaters has reduced because films come on OTT right after they come in theaters, they come on OTT very fast. So I have always tried to keep a 6-month gap for my films. I don’t know what the industry follows, but I like to keep a 6-month gap. So that’s what I tried to do for all my films and up till now, we have managed that”,” he added.
