It was surely a clash of the titans as two big budget films were releasing on the very same day. Both the films had stars attached to them and the promotion/marketing for the films was a success as the buzz around them both was worth seeing. But what happens at the box-office window, well nobody can really predict. People thought that the Mahira Khan starrer would emerge as the clear winner given her recent escapades in Bollywood, but well the box office has a different story to tell.
According to independent box-office reporting sites, Wrong Number has collected approximately .75 crore while Bin Roye has collected .50 crore at the box-office. We cannot vouch for the authenticity of the numbers, but this is all we have until the official numbers come from the makers themselves ( which though are not accurate either), but until we have some official box-office tracking system in Pakistan this is all we have got.
Moreover Bajrangi Bhaijaan made 1.4 crore while Terminator made .31 crore.
We decided to talk to some cinema people and ask how the films fared at their cinemas
Mohsin Yaseen, General Manger Marketing and Operations at Cinepax said “Well both the films ( Wrong Number and Bin Roye) are doing equally well at Cinepax. The shows for both the films are equal and almost all of them are sold out.”
He also added “However since the film Wrong Number has been playing in cinemas for two-three days now so it is very likely that it has a bigger aggregate but the first day of Eid was equal for both the films”
We also talked to Khurram Gultasab, General Manager of Super Cinemas, and he mentioned something similar at Super Cinemas “Well both the films are doing equally well at Super Cinemas.Also, most shows are housefull in our different centers which include Lahore, Sialkot and Gujrat”
So looks like both the films are doing equally well at cinemas. Lets wait for the official numbers to arrive now.
