FAN crossed 8cr mark in Pakistan yesterday and is looking set end it’s Week in region of 9-9.5cr approx making it biggest Week One of the year and first non-Holiday release ever after Furious 7 to have 9+cr opening Week. It will be third biggest Week One for Hindi films after Dhoom 3 and Dilwale and both these films were festival releases.
FAN left festival releases like Happy New Year, KICK, Bajrangi Bhaijaan way behind in it’s first Week.. Is 3rd highest grosser of 2016 overall after Ho Mann Jahaan and Bachaana.. Will be crossing Bachaana coming Friday. There is local release Hijrat this Week but it won’t create any problem for FAN, then there is a major Hindi film Baaghi coming Week which will be a threat at masses but plexes won’t see a threat. Film which will dead stop FAN is Captain America: Civial Wars.
Civil Wars is looking monstrous at buzz and will take away everything from FAN and even local release Mah e Mir which features famous local hero Fahad Mustafa. Mah e Mir and Civil Wars are clashing at boxoffice on 6th May Weekend but it seems one way as Civil Wars will topple Mah e Mir easily. Film’s buzz is super big and will easily open over 1.5cr mark but it is yet to be seen that can it open big like Furious 7? It will be tough but film should go better than Avengers: Age Of Ultron which is currently 2nd biggest grosser ever for English releases in Pakistan.
