A great adaptation of a classic. Check it out for its Indian character!! Good Luck #AamirKhan & Kiran,” he said in a message.

The movie opened with a slow start with about 10-11 crore at the till. Laal Singh Chaddha did not perform well in the Hindi circuits, boxofficeindia.com reported. However, it is expected to do reasonable business in the metro cities, all thanks to the extended five-day weekend.
