Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha Becomes The HIGHEST Grosser Of 2022 Overseas, Beats Gangubai Kathiawadi And The Kashmir Files
Aamir Khan-Kareena Kapoor starrer Laal Singh Chaddha is the official adaptation of 1994 Hollywood classic 'Forrest Gump' starring Tom Hanks.
Laal Singh Chaddha Breaks International Records: Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan starrer Laal Singh Chaddha that was released in theatres worldwide on August 11 failed miserably at the Indian box-office. Reportedly the film tanked at BO due to the ‘boycott trend’ and managed to earn just Rs 50 crores in first week. However the movie wowed the international audience and has broken a significant record at the worldwide box office. According to Bollywood Hungama, Laal Singh Chaddha is now the highest-grossing Hindi film of 2022 in international markets, surpassing hits such as Gangubai Kathiawadi, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and The Kashmir Files.
