The film ‘Jawani Phir Nahi Ani’ was expected to to take a great start at the box office, but the mayhem that is being witnessed all over Pakistan is just crazy. The film created a new record when it scored the biggest first day collections on Friday but it was the growth on Saturday that has taken everyone by surprise.
Quoting from the website box office detail ” Jawani Phir Nahi Ani is having phenomenal run and is running to 100% occupancies everywhere. Film has become a nationwide phenomenon as there are extra seats installed at few localities to cope up with the demand. There are extra shows at many places, tickets are being blacked out. The next few days are sold out at most places and few places are sold out for whole week. Such things happen rarely in the history of cinema and in Pakistan this happened last when Chooriyan released in 1998.”
Therefore it should not really come as a surprise that the second day of the film brought in a collection of 2.68 crores. Add in the .30 crores from Thursday previews and 2.07 crores from Friday and the two day( + previews) totals to 5.05 crore ( Box Office Detail).
Thursday (Previews) .30 crore
Friday( Day 1) 2.07 crore
Saturday ( Day 2) 2.68 crore
Total 5.05 crore
Given that the shows have been further increased, lets see what Sunday has in store for the film.
