Despite the absence of major clashes at the box office, “Lal Salaam” faces an uphill battle in generating substantial weekend collections. The lack of broader acceptance among audiences has hindered its growth potential, with current projections estimating a weekend total of around Rs 15 crore.


Critical Acclaim vs. Commercial Success

Therefore, the film’s struggle to attract a wider audience highlights the challenges thought-provoking cinema faces in today’s entertainment landscape.

As fans eagerly await updates on “Lal Salaam’s” box office performance, whether the film can overcome its sluggish start and gain momentum in the coming days remains to be seen. Regardless of its initial setbacks, Rajinikanth’s star power and the film’s thematic resonance may yet propel it to success in the long run.
