Box Office: ‘Teefa In Trouble’ is on fire, records biggest opening for a Pakistani film!

He came, he saw and, he conquered!

The statement holds true for Ali Zafar whose debut Pakistani film ‘Teefa In Trouble’ released yesterday and set the box office on fire by recording a whopping 2.3 crore on the very first day itself.

The Ali Zafar-Maya Ali starrer has left behind all other Pakistani releases as the first day numbers are the highest ever for any Pakistani film. Furthermore, what is interesting is that the film was a non-holiday release whereas other Pakistani biggies like Punjab Nahi Jaungi and Jawani Phir Nahi Ani were holiday releases.

The success of the film shows that good content with right marketing will be well received whether its an Eid release or not, something that our Eid obsessed industry needed to understand. Ali Zafar had said that he wanted to set a precedent with releasing his film on a non-holiday weekend and looks like he has just done what he wanted to.

We congratulate the makers on the success and hope the film does even better in the coming days.

All numbers used in this article have been taken from independent box office tracking site Box Office Detail and we cannot vouch for the authenticity of these box office numbers. 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.
