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.
In its third week and still going strong! Yes, that is the power of content which clicks with the audiences. Punjab Nahi Jaungi’s third weekend ended on a strong note with cinema’s all over Pakistan reporting excellent occupancies ranging from eighty percent to housefull. And here we thought getting tickets for the film would now be easy!
It is worth mentioning that six new films opened in Pakistani cinemas this week, yet Punjab Nahi Jaungi was the first choice for cinegoers and collected 2.6 crores in its third weekend taking its seventeen day total at the domestic front to 22.35 crores.
Furthermore, the film has been having a dream run at the international front too and total collections from the international market have crossed 16 crores in the first 17 days. This means that the worldwide gross for the film is approximately 38+ crores for the first 17 days with 40 crore mark being hit in a day or two.
Currently, the film is the fourth highest grosser at the local front only behind Jawani Phir Nahi Ani, Actor In Law and Waar but from the looks of it, the film is likely to cross them all and emerge the second highest grosser locally, only behind JPNA which had a total local collection of 32 crores.
At the international front, the film is second only to Bin Roye which while despite an okay run at the local front, had collected 19 crores internationally! But Punjab Nahi Jaungi will soon cross this mark and will most likely touch the 50 crore mark worldwide and hence emerge as the highest-grossing Pakistani film ever beating Jawani Phir Nahi Ani’s 45 crore tally ( worldwide gross).
