After making new records of business on a single day, now Jawani Phir Nahin Aani (a film released on Eidul Azha) has also exceeded the all time one week collection record. The film has earned more than 13 crore in the first week, leaving behind Furious 7 which earned 12.5 crore rupees in the first week of its release in April 2015.
The film has also the highest earning Pakistani film in a week, leaving behind Waar which earned 9 crore in its opening week in October 2013.
The records of top three films highest earning in a week are now as follows.
1- Jawani Phir Nahin Aani (2015,Urdu – Karawood) – 13+ crore
2- Furious 7 (2015, Hollywood) – 12.5 crore
3- Dhoom 3 (2013, Bollywood) – 12 crore
Seeing this trend many filmi pundits are predicting the film could be the highest earning film on the Pakistani box office. Currently the record of highest earning for a single film in Pakistani rupee is held by Bollywood’s Dhoom 3 which earned between 24 crore – 25 crore in 2013 followed by Pakistani film Waar which earned nearly 23 crore in 2013.
However the film is expected to face a stiff competition from upcoming Bollywood films like Singh is Biling which is releasing on 2nd October 2015.
