'Laal Singh Chaddha' producers dismiss reports of distributors asking for compensation: ‘No money lost’

'Laal Singh Chaddha', which released in theatres on August 11, has received mixed reviews from critics, as well as fans. 

Aamir Khan-Kareena Kapoor Khan starrer 'Laal Singh Chaddha' has failed to rake in good box office numbers despite the long weekend. The film was expected to be a blockbuster, but it has failed to draw audiences to the theatres and has reportedly managed to collect Rs 37.96 crore in its four-day opening weekend. Recent reports claimed that distributors have requested the producers for compensation because of the losses they have reportedly incurred. However, Viacom18, the production house behind the film, has responded to these reports and called them 'baseless speculation'.

Ajit Andhare, CEO of Viacom 18, told ETimes, 'There are no external distributors, it's being distributed by V18Studios, and no money is lost in the first place. The film is still running in theaters both in India and internationally. This is baseless speculation.'

The report also quoted an exhibitor as saying, 'Most studios don’t sell their territories, it is always distributed directly. Even if we try asking for the rights, it is too expensive for us. And the reports of distributors asking for money in case of Laal Singh Chaddha is baseless as the producers are only distributors of the film.'

The Advait Chandan directorial is the official Hindi remake of 'Forrest Gump', starring Tom Hanks. The film also stars Mona Singh, and Naga Chaitanya in pivotal roles.
'Laal Singh Chaddha', which faced boycott calls from a certain section of social media users, has received mixed reviews from critics, as well as fans.
