Teefa in Trouble has been a mega blockbuster through and through, for the local cinema. Interestingly, it is the only film which was released on a non-holiday but still managed to amass mammoth collections, at the local box office. In simpler words, the film opened amidst election days but still managed to stay afloat and collect big numbers.
A Box Office marvel
Teefa in Trouble, during its original run, collected a total of 34.5 crores locally and 14 crores from the overseas, taking its total to 48.5 crores approximately.
Since the ban on Indian content, that was imposed in February, many local films were brought back in the cinemas; Teefa being one of them. Last night, Ali Zafar announced on his social media accounts that the film has amassed a total of 50 crores worldwide on the revived run. This shows that the film, despite releasing online, could still add 2.5 crores more to its tally.

50 CRORES. 7 months in cinemas. One of the most beautifully manifested endeavours of my life. #AhsanRahim you are a magician. Take a bow team as we set another record! @tadpolefilms @mayaaliofficial @mahenurhaider @danyalzee @faisalqureshi_official @salmaan.bokhari @fia_sofiakhan @tahasadaqat @xainhaleem. My sincere gratitude to the entire cast and crew and all the fans who were the real reason behind this magnanimous success! 🙌🕺⚡️🏅🙏💫🤛🏻
For a non-holiday release, Teefa in Trouble has exhibited numbers which will be very tough for any other film to beat in the near future as most of our big-ticket films only release on one of the two Eids. Teefa has proved that good content does well on any given date and the public loves to watch good entertainment cinema.
Furthermore, what makes this record even more worthwhile is the fact that the film was able to collect a whopping 50 crores worldwide, despite the fact it was a debut film for three people i.e. two main leads Ali Zafar, Maya Ali, and the director, Ahsan Rahim. In my own personal opinion, no film in the near future seems capable of breaking this record. Ali Zafar’s next local release will definitely be a film to watch out for and looks like Teefa is no more in trouble.
