Thugs of hindostan and jab harry met sejal are the biggest disappointments recently from Khans.
Films staring Khans in lead have always garnered tremendous buzz in Pakistan. Opening numbers have always been massive. But recently two films have turned out to be a huge disappointment in Pakistan.
Firstly Jab Harry Met Sejal had a very disappointing results last year. Shah Rukh Khan starers have always managed to get big initials in Pakistan and Jab Harry Met Sejal had phenomenal start but film came down very fast post opening Weekend. Film’s opening numbers were among top openings of all time back then but film was nowhere in any list of lifetime numbers. Thugs of Hindostan even though has done little better than Jab Harry Met Sejal but film is a bigger disappointment. Film had much better release date and had much bigger release size. Furthermore content of the film was also more universal but Thugs of Hindostan has failed to impress.
Thugs of Hindostan will finish it’s run with numbers little over 15cr whereas Jab Harry Met Sejal had done little over 11cr in it’s lifetime run. Few might say that Race 3 was a huge disappointment too but that film still managed to go close to 10cr mark despite a Week late release and having huge negativity around it on social media before it’s release in Pakistan. Race 3 had actually seen better opening day number over both Thugs and Jab Harry Met Sejal despite having a Week late release and lesser number of shows.
