We cannot vouch for the authenticity of these box office numbers given by independent box office tracking site Box Office Detail. However until we have some official box-office tracking system in Pakistan this is all we have got. Also the numbers are revised at times and hence you may observe fluctuations.
This is Eid-ul-Azha was rather filmy as we had not one or two but three big budget local films hitting cinemas and fighting for the viewers attention. Among them were the Fahad Mustafa- Mehwish Hayat starrer ‘Actor In Law’, the Feroze Khan- Sajal Aly starrer ‘Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hay’ and lastly the Armeena Khan-Bilal Ashraf-Ali Rehman starrer ‘Janaan’. All three films were well promoted so the box office was bound to take good start and that is exactly what has happened.
-Leading the race is ‘Actor In Law’ which has raked in 1.65 crore being the second highest Pakistani opener , secondary only to the blockbuster ‘Jawani Phir Nahi Ani’ which opened with 2.07 crore. But it’s worth mentioning that AIL was clashing with two other films while JPNA was a solo release. So kudos to the Nabeel Qureshi directorial for these amazing numbers.
-‘Janaan’ has opened up with 1.04 crore which is also a strong opening as only two film this year, Ho Mann Jahaan and Bachana, have managed a 1 crore opening day.
-As for ‘Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hay’ the official numbers are not out yet but an educated guess would be that the film has made somewhere around 0.75 crore considering the number of shows and the average occupancies.
So the total tally of the three films is about 3.4+ crore which shows how much our cinema has grown in the last year. Interestingly the number will grow on day 2 as growth is expected at the box office.Lets see how the films score on day 2! Stay tuned to Galaxy Lollywood for all updates.
Update: The revised numbers, obtained from box office tracking site Box Office Detail, are as follows:-
Actor In Law 1.6 crore
Janaan 1.04 crore
Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hay 0.40 crore
