Islamabad | Salman Khan’s latest film Bajrangi Bhaijaan is leading at Pakistani theaters by out performing two local movies, which released around the Eid festival. Bin Roye and Wrong No so far have failed to compete with Bajrangi despite massive campaigns in the local media.
Bin Roye is the debut film of co-directors Momina Duraid and Shehzad Kashmiri, who have given some super hit dramas to Pakistani TV channels, while Wrong No is the first venture of Yasir Nawaz, who is famous for producing TV comedies.
Film distributor and cinema owner Nadeem Mandviwala said that at his theatres in capital Islamabad and Karachi, Bajrangi was ahead with PKR 3.2 million, followed by Bin Roye with PKR 2.8 million and Wrong Number with PKR2.7 million.
A director of Capri Cinema in Karachi said that Bajrangi earned PKR 2.5 million while Bin Roye bagged PKR 1.5 million, while Jerjees Seja, CEO of ARY Digital Network, stated that so far the Wrong Number has gathered more than PKR 3.4 million.
It is believed that despite losing on money to the Indian movie, both Pakistan films are still in competition. But obviously Bajrangi had advantage due to Salman factor and its theme of Indo-Pak relations. No wonder that it earned INR Rs 184 crore in India within a week of its release.
