The August 12 box office for the Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar starrer Raksha Bandhan, directed by Aanand L. Rai, dropped by almost 25%, according to early estimates. Raksha Bandhan has brought in between 5.65 and 6.25 crore, bringing the two-day total to 14 crore. With the exception of some populous regions like Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, where the receipts have actually increased due to Raksha Bandhan celebrations, the movie's performance has decreased nationwide.

Forrest Gump's official Hindi adaptation Laal Singh Chaddha has been written by renowned actor Atul Kulkarni and directed by Secret Superstar alumnus Advait Chandan.

Laal, a slow learner but kindhearted guy, recounts the important occasions in his life, many of which coincide with well-known events in Indian history. The movie was released in Tamil and Telugu in addition to Hindi.

Additionally playing important roles in the film are Bollywood diva Kareena Kapoor Khan, Mona Singh, Naga Chaitanya, and Manav Vij. Both veteran actress Kamini Kaushal and superstar Shah Rukh Khan make cameo appearances.

Raksha Bandhan's lifetime collection may be comparable to Laal Singh Chaddha in the long run even though both movies may seem to have similar results on the verdict front. Few people would have imagined that Laal Singh Chaddha and Raksha Bandhan would end up with comparable numbers. The trailers of both Laal Singh Chaddha and Raksha Bandhan received mixed reviews. While some found it audacious to do a Hindi remake of the Tom Hanks classic, some considered it unacceptable to see a lenient view on issues like dowry in Akshay Kumar’s movie.
