The premiere of Laal Singh Chaddha and Raksha Bandhan, two of the most anticipated movies of the year, makes this coming Thursday vital for the Hindi cinema industry. The box office receipts of the Aamir Khan starrer and the Akshay Kumar starrer are crucial in rescuing Bollywood from the slump it has fallen into given the poor performance of Bollywood films during the first half of the year (the only exceptions being Gangubai Kathiawadi, The Kashmir Files, and Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2) and the flourishing business of the non-Hindi films.

The film sector experts have a reason for optimism after examining the tendencies of Laal Singh Chaddha's advance bookings, which were reportedly made on a budget of around ₹180 crores. Large theatre chains like PVR, INOX, and Cinepolis have collectively sold more than 95k tickets, indicating that the movie has already made more than ₹11.5 crores in revenue. 

The family drama Raksha Bandhan, starring Akshay Kumar, has only sold about 50k tickets so far, but it has made about ₹4.5 crores before its Thursday premiere, falling behind the Aamir Khan's movie in box office receipts.

Both of these films are going to release at a time when Bollywood has lost its throne to the Southern Cinema. The success of these movies is crucial for the fraternity because of what has happened, which has led to unrest within it at the moment. Corporates and celebrities are creating projects rather than adhering to the films' or the story's original intent, which is probably why it's failing. Even Hollywood directors are returning to theatrical releases, so everyone's rush to OTT is definitely backfiring as well.

Every movie with well-known actors linked with it, not simply Laal Singh Chaddha and Raksha Bandhan, is significant in the current situation. The Aanand L. Rai film has about 4200 screens, compared to about 4000 for the Advait Chandan-directed film. Johar claims Laal Singh Chaddha will have an advantage at the ticket counters "due to Aamir Khan" despite a somewhat lower number of screens.
