Pakistani cinema started from nothing and is progressing day by day with a good number of movies coming out each year and some of them doing a really good business. Actors like Humayun Saeed and Fahad Mustafa and director like Nadeem Baig are ruling the Lollywood industry.
According to global stats shared by ARY Films, JPNA 2 has become the first Pakistani movie to cross PKR 70 crores at the global box office. The film previously made 68 crores rupees but it was re-released after the ban on Bollywood movies in Pakistan. Hence, the film made 2 crores after its re-released and crossed the 70 crore mark which is most by any Pakistani film. Previously, Ali Zafar’s Teefa in Trouble made PKR 50 crores.
Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2 Pakistani romantic comedy film which was released last year, in 2018. The film starred Fahad Mustafa, Kubra Khan, and Mawra Hocane, Ahmed Ali Butt, Humayun Saeed, Vasay Chaudhry, Sarwat Gilani, and Uzma Khan. The story revolves around a suicidal Sherry who falls in love with an Indian Muslim girl, whose father cannot stand the sight of Pakistanis. The record-making film is directed by Nadeem Baig, the film is a Salman Iqbal Films, ARY Films, and Six Sigma Plus production. The film was released on Eid ul-Adha on 22 August 2018.
The cast is really happy as their film crossed the 70 crore mark.
Humayun and Nadeem’s duo is doing really well as any film director by Nadeem with Humayun having a leading role in it does really well. Nadeem Baig said, “Our goal is to entertain the audience whether it’s through comedy, romance or drama. The success of our films has given us the assurance that perhaps we are on the right track as far as choosing the premise of the movie is concerned.”
There is still room for improvement in the Pakistani cinema and we really hope that the films do even better and make more money.
