Box Office: Punjab Nahi Jaungi just owned the UK Box Office with a crazy opening!

Now, this is some news you all!

Punjab Nahi Jaungi released in the UK this Thursday on limited screens and got a full fledged release on Friday. The box office numbers have arrived and they are legit crazy. The film has not only performed exceedingly well for a Pakistani film but it has actually outdone Bollywood biggie Baadshaho.

Yes, you read that right. The Humayun Saeed starrer took a thunderous opening at the box office and raked in 81,565 pounds while Baadshaho brought in 32,575 pounds. Other Pakistani film Na Maloom Afraad 2 also released but it was able to bring in only 6910 pounds.

Goes without saying that this is the biggest opening ever for a Pakistani film in the UK. Furthermore, it’s interesting that the film has brought in more money from an international market than its domestic collection.

Heres congratulating the makers and lets see what records the film breaks in the coming days.What a wonderful day for Pakistani cinema 🙂

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. The numbers are also revised at times and hence you may observe fluctuations.

I might be an Economics graduate from LUMS, but cinema is where my heart truly belongs. Always up for a discussion on fims and I guess you could call me a Pakistani Cinema aficionado. Email:
