Mahira Khan is one of the biggest stars in Pakistan and every film of hers manage solid advance sales. Stardom of an actor is measured by advance sales and opening weekend box office performance. Mahira Khan starrers have always managed strong advance bookings and good initials. However, her films usually see steep falls post opening week hence she has no film in top 5 all time highest grossing films. If Raees had released in Pakistan then Raees would have been among top 5 all time grossers.
The actress has a massive pull at box office but the projects chosen by her so far don’t compliment the stature of her stardom. A proper commercial project or a project with wider target audience would garner massive numbers for Mahira Khan starrers.
Well, 2020 is looking big for the actress and if things go right then she will rule 2020. So far one film of Mahira Khan is confirmed for release in 2020 i.e. Quaid e Azam Zindabad. Directed by Nabeel Qureshi, it is a cop action film and genre is a perfect recipe for massive initials at box office. She will be sharing screen space with Fahad Mustafa for the first time. The film will definitely run riots in it’s opening week and if treatment by Nabeel is right then there will be no stopping for this film.
Secondly, The Legend Of Maula Jatt is also tentatively scheduled to release in 2020 and that film has bright chances of becoming one of the biggest hits of all time. The film is already massive on buzz and initials will be thunderous. The film will be smashing all opening box office records and if the content gets acceptance by cine goers then The Legend Of Maula Jatt will definitely take box office to new levels in long run.
Thirdly, there is another project which has massive potential and that film can turn tables around. As per reports, Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan will star together in “Untitled Project” which will go on floors soon. The film will be an intense love story.
Action films always take massive initials as they are front loaded but romantic family films always have longer legs at box office provided the content is accepted. The film stars biggest romantic jodi i.e. Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan hence initials won’t be an issue. If content gets appreciation then the film can actually be a massive success. The film will easily become highest grossing romantic film alongwith massive long run which can set new benchmarks.
If these three films happen to release in 2020 and live upto the expectations then Mahira Khan will easily be the biggest star of 2020 and all the boxoffice records will belong to her.
