As per Twitter poll; ‘Raksha Bandhan’ is a more popular choice than ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’


This August 11, 2022, movie going audiences will feel like they are spoilt for choice and two big movies are releasing on the same day – Aamir Khan’s ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ and Akshay Kumar’s ‘Raksha Bandhan’. The former is the official adaptation of the Tom Hanks starring classic Hollywood movie, ‘Forrest Gump’, while the latter is an emotional roller coaster about the relationship between brothers and sisters.

While we have to wait until August to see which movie eventually comes on top and is more preferred by viewers, entertainment portal, Bollywood Hungama ran a poll on Twitter where they asked users, which film they would go to watch on August 11 – ‘Raksha Bandhan’ or ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’?

The results might be surprising as Akshay Kumar’s ‘Raksha Bandhan’ came out on top. As per the survey results, nearly 39,870 people participated in the survey and of that number nearly 48% voted for ‘Raksha Bandhan’ while only 31% opted for ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ and sadly for both movies, 21% of the participants voted that they had no interest in watching either movie.

Here is the survey result:

Of course, August is still a while away and for both the movies, the huge advantage is that they are releasing on an extended weekend of 5 days starting from Raksha Bandhan festival day on August 11, leading up to Independence Day on August 15.
