Another big budgeted movie Operation 21 was also announced to be released on Eid, but release of O021 might be further delayed. Last year Waar released on Eidul Azha became the highest grossing Pakistani film ever. Despite the success of Waar very few Urdu films have been released this year. Films released this year like System, Tammana and Sultanat have failed to attract viewership.
