One of the most successful films in recent years, Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2 (JPNA 2) has continually created buzz. The comedy film which had crossed the 60-crore mark last year is now officially Pakistan’s highest grossing film with global box office business of 70 crores.

CEO of ARY Jerjees Seja also shared the news on his Instagram.
“News alert! The biggest blockbuster of all time #JPNA2 becomes the first ever Pakistani movie to cross Rs.70 Crores at the Global box office!”
Last year when the film reached a benchmark, we reached out to director Nadeem Baig and he 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.”
Since 2015, the duo Nadeem and Humayun Saeed, has collaborated — along with producers Salman Iqbal, Jerjees Seja and Shehzad Nasib — on three films all of which went on to become highest grossing Pakistani films of all time — at that particular point in time. It started with Jawani Phir Nahi Ani (JPNA), which made nearly 50 crores worldwide followed by Punjab Nahi Jaungi (2017) which collected over 50 crore worldwide and finally JPNA 2, which has now crossed the 70-crore mark worldwide.
The film which stars Humayun, Mawra Hocane, Kubra Khan, Ahmed Ali Butt and Fahad Mustafa in pivotal roles is still running in cinemas.
