Box Office: Teefa still flying high, crosses the 30 crore mark on Eid!

Teefa In Trouble is a success like no other. The film released on July 20 and first recorded the biggest day one ever for any Pakistani film despite being a non-holiday release and then it recorded the biggest non-holiday first week ever for any Pakistani film.

Maintaining the momentum the film scored big numbers in week two however the real surprise came in week three where the film registered the biggest week three ever for any film to have released in Pakistan! Yes, the film beat the likes of biggies like Punjab Nahi Jaungi, Sultan, and Sanju! And not just in week three but the film upheld its superiority and had a record week four number.

Week five has opened on a positive note for the film and as you read this on Eid-ul-Azha (Wednesday) the film has crossed the 30 crore mark at the box office which makes it the third highest-grossing Pakistani film only behind Punjab Nahi Jaungi and Jawani Phir Nahi Ani. If you add foreign films to the mix, then Teefa is the fifth highest grosser ever!

Here is the weekly break down:

(Week One): 11.31cr

(Week Two): 7.48cr

(Week Three): 5.77cr

(Week Four): 4.17cr

(Week Five- 5 days): 1.19cr

Grand Total.. 29.92cr

Lets see how the film fares on Eid where it has to face major opposition from three Lollywood biggies ‘Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2’, ‘Load Wedding’ and ‘Parwaaz Hai Junoon’. But given the showtimes ‘Teefa In Trouble’ has secured and the excellent trending, it would not be a surprise if the film does exceedingly well and emerges as the highest-grossing Pakistani film ever! Stay tuned.

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.
