Box Office: Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2 totally owned the five day Eid Weekend!


Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2 had blockbuster written all over it the day it was first announced! When you are making a sequel to one of the biggest films of Pakistan and take things a few notches higher, your creation is bound to translate into a box-office bonanza and that is exactly what has happened. Now while content-wise the film may not be the strongest contender, but the outright masala entertainer has definitely connected with the audiences which is clearly visible in the box office numbers that are emerging.

The film which released on Wednesday has been on a record-breaking spree and currently, the film holds all domestic number records whereas Pakistani films are concerned, be it day one, weekend etc. Domestically, the only film that Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2 hasn’t been able to beat is the Salman Khan starrer Sultan which also released on a Wednesday two years back on Eid and raked in about 17.7 crore in its five-day extended weekend.

Here is a breakdown of the daily domestic numbers for Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2

Tuesday (Previews): 0.24 crore
Wednesday: 2.99 crore
Thursday: 3.57 crore
Friday: 3.36 crore
Saturday:3.7 crore
Sunday: 3.07 crore

Total: 16.9crore

The film has done exceedingly well at the international front too but unfortunately wasn’t able to beat the numbers of Punjab Nahi Jaungi which had recorded a five day International weekend of 8.5 crore while JPNA2 has raked in 8.12 crore. But since the film has done wonders at the domestic box office the total five-day global box office goes to 25.02 crore which is the highest ever for a Pakistani film! Heres a quick comparison of JPNA2 and Punjab Nahi Jaungi.

Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2:
[16.9 crore (domestic) + 8.12 crore ( International) = 25.02 crore]

Punjab Nahi Jaungi:
[9.53crore (domestic) + 8.5 crore ( International) = 18.03 crore]

Here’s congratulating the makers of the film on this success, let us see what other records this film creates in the coming days.
