Jawani Phir Nahi Ani, the highest grosser film, nailing across Pakistan

Beyond the prospects, this year’s most efficacious movie and currently the highest grosser ever in Pakistan ‘’Jawani Phir Nahi Ani’’ has crafted so many histories as the movie got engrossing response from the audience all over the world. It has become the highest ever grosser in Pakistan after a slit of two years by breaching WAAR’s sway and succeeded in crowning the throne on its head.

The movie Waar was able to earn Rs. 234 Million in its long time run. Jawani Phir Nahi Ani proved to be a giant by leading at Rs. 260 Million collection. ARY Films representative said,

It’s officially the highest-grossing film in Pakistani cinemas as it bettered the records of Waar and Fast and Furious 7 over the weekend.

The film has been shown on almost 80 bigger screens and it unbolted at local box office at a very good rate, even beyond the furnished hopes of the distributors. A grand opening was not anticipated but due to the big names associated with it, it was believed that it would do surely well.

JPNA earned Rs74.5 Million during the Eid Days although the target expected was Rs. 40-50 million in minds of the makers.

Before the release of Jawani Phir Nahi Ani, the distributors accolade the movie and claimed it to be the complete package for Eid-ul-Azha.

It is still foresighted that JPNA will shine on the silver screens for many more weeks because there are no big releases pending until November except for ‘Mann ho Jahan’ whose release has been postponed due to Muharram.

Until now the top 6 highest grosser movies ever in Pakistan with their weekly collection are:

  • Jawani Phir Nahi Ani with over 26.5 crore PKR
  • Furious 7 with 25.05 crore PKR
  • Dhoom 3 with 25 crore PKR
  • Bajrangi Bhaijaan with 23.3 crore PKR
  • Waar with 23 crore PKR

So we can explicitly conclude that the movie was a houseful as it didn’t face any fiercer competition by any local or global films unlike other movies released by our local directors without taking any privilege from the movie!
