Fawad Khan, Sidharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt starrer Kapoor and Sons has registered second biggest Weekend of 2016 in Pakistan as figures are coming close to PKR 35 million. The film had a hit music and presence of Fawad Khan was always going to be a huge plus at multiplexes.
Film had record number of shows over the Weekend due to attachment of Fawad Khan but the film’s content was only catering to multiplexe audiences of Karachi, Lahore and Rwp/Isl. The film has scored big in these places as major multiplex chain in metro cities have recorded huge numbers.
Kapoor and Sons has concluded opening weekend little under PKR 35 million making it biggest opening weekend of 2016 for Hindi films whereas overall the opening weekend numbers are only behind Ho Mann Jahaan which released in January.
Film did best in plexes of Karachi followed by Lahore. Islamabad was bit slow but things have been slow there past two weeks due to heavy rains. Today is very crucial for the film.
Below is Weekend daily business.
Friday.. 13 million
Saturday.. 9 million
Sunday (Estimates).. 12.5 million
Total.. 34.5 million
Film’s business got dented on Saturday due to big cricket match but there is National Holiday of Pakistan’s Day on Wednesday and it seems film will cover up that loss on Weekdays. Furthermore, the film must take full advantage of that Pakistan Day holiday if it has to have chances of crossing 10cr mark and become highest grossing film for Fawad Khan beating Khoobsorat.
