It was a big day for Bollywood on Thursday as two of the highly anticipated projects, #LaalSinghChaddha and #RakshaBandan premiered on August 11 amid huge fanfare. So, how did the films perform on their opening day?… Image
Akshay Kumar starrer 'Raksha Bandhan' marked the actor's third outing in 2022. His previous two films, 'Bachchhan Paandey' and 'Samrat Prithviraj' were disasters at the box office. So, this film's success is important for him. Image
'Laal Singh Chaddha,' on the other hand, marked #AamirKhan's come back to the big screens after about four years. Naturally, all eyes are on the movie's success. Image
The opening day of 'Laal Singh Chaddha' fetched the makers Rs. 10-11 crore. Though it had a slow start in the morning, the film saw more footfalls post afternoon which helped in a double-digit figure record. Disappointingly, it did not perform well in the Hindi circuits. Image
'Raksha Bandhan' had a pretty bad opening day as it minted Rs. 8cr, which is lesser than Kumar's previous 2022 movies 'Samrat Prithviraj' and 'Bachchhan Paandey.' Though the film showed more progress than 'Laal Singh Chaddha' post afternoon, its box office figures are worrisome. Image
Starring Kareena Kapoor Khan as the leading lady, 'Laal Singh Chaddha' is directed by Advait Chandan. It's a remake of the Hollywood movie 'Forrest Gump' and marked Telugu star #NagaChaitanya's Bollywood debut. Image
'Raksha Bandhan' stars Bhumi Pednekar as the leading lady and is directed by Aanand L Rai. Sadia Khateeb, Deepika Khanna, Smrithi Srikanth, and Sahejmeen Kaur played key supporting roles in it. Image

Urvashi Rautela & Indian cricketer Rishabh Pant have found themselves in a controversy. In an interview, Rautela had mentioned a "Mr. RP" who waited for her at a Delhi hotel for over 10 hours. Reacting to this, Pant took a dig at her on his Insta Story.… Image
Cricketers being linked to actors isn't a new phenomenon in India. Pant and Rautela have made headlines repeatedly due to rumors of their alleged "relationship" and it was also reported that the duo eventually split up since things didn't work out. Image
Rautela, finally breaking her silence amidst immense social media trolling, has strongly retaliated. Calling Pant a "chotu bhaiyaa [little brother]" who should "play bat-ball," she wrote in her post, "Main koyi Munni nahi hoon badnam hone with young kiddo darling tere liye." Image
