Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan starrer Laal Singh Chaddha was one of the most anticipated films this year. Having invested four years of his life in the film, Aamir couldn’t live up to the audience’s expectations and from constant shifts in the release date to the ‘Boycott Laal Singh Chaddha’ trend, the film faced multiple hiccups prior to its release.
Unfortunately, all these factors contributed to Laal Singh Chaddha being tanked at the box office and it could barely manage to earn Rs 100 crore. ALSO READ | WHAT!

However, as per the latest reports, Aamir has decided to forgo his fee to make up for the losses incurred by producers, Viacom 18.
While the LSC turned out to be a box-office dud, several cinephiles believed that the film could have been a game-changer for Bollywood, and it went on to become a centre for controversies!
Now, according to the latest Bollywood Hungama report, Aamir has reportedly decided to waive his fee for the film to compensate for the producers’ loss after the film failed at the box office.
“If Aamir Khan decides to charge his acting fees, Viacom 18 Studios would have entailed losses of nearly Rs. 100 crores. However, that loss is something that Aamir Khan has decided to absorb himself. Now, the producer will lose nominal money,” said a source quoted as saying by India Today.
“He gave four years to the film but has not made a single penny from it. His opportunity cost on Laal Singh Chaddha is upwards of Rs. 100 crores, but he has decided to absorb all the losses taking the complete blame of failure on himself,” the source added.
