The film has left behind hits like ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’, ‘Bhool Bhulaiya 2’ and ‘The Kashmir Files’.
‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ earned $ 7.5 million i.e. Rs 59 crore in a week of release. The film has left behind ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ ($7.47 million), ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ ($5.88 million) and ‘The Kashmir Files’ ($5.7 million). All three films were superhit in India.
