With 2018 bringing in some stability to the box office, numbers from recently released films have managed to see some increases as both Parchi and Chupan Chupai battle it out.
According to independent box office websites and sources, the recently released Hareem Farooq starrer has managed to become quite a success throughout Pakistan according to its numbers. Although the film may have been thrashed by critics, Parchi has managed to rake in a whopping PKR 3 Crore since its release on January 5th!
Sources also suggest that the film has done extraordinarily well in Islamabad/Rawalpindi and that has contributed to the overall success of Parchi in Pakistan.
In comparison, Chupan Chupai too has made its footing strong at the box office with a collection rivaling Parchi. However, given the number of days between the two releases, it indicates a massive drop in earnings for the Ahsan Khan starrer.
While both new films may have seen an interesting few days at the box office, films like Rangreza and Arth – The Destination have mostly been removed from cinemas. Apart from that, their showtimes reduced to a minimum as well – indicating an overall fall at the box office.
What will happen at the box office next with the release of upcoming film Maan Jao Na? A month’s time will tell…
