2019 had met with a very dull start at the boxoffice in Pakistan for Hindi films in first two months . Then there came a temporary ban on Hindi films that started with Total Dhamaal back in February and it is still in progress. At the same time, it is anticipated that the we might see the release of Hindi films from September. If that happens then YRF’s WAR starring Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff will be among biggest Hindi films of 2019 in Pakistan.
Pakistani boxoffice has always been dominated by Khans despite the younger generation of Bollywood, who are making their mark in their domestic market this year. Khans have always managed to pull huge boxoffice initials. Salman Khan’s Sultan still holds all the opening boxoffice records in Pakistan whereas SRK has the most number of 2+cr opening days.
Now the question that arises is, which film will be able to rake in the highest initials this year in Pakistan among Hindi films?
As per buzz, it is likely to be Yash Raj Film, WAR starring Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff. Film is slated for release on 2nd October. Tiger Sheroff has been unstoppable in the genre of action in Pakistan. The film is a high octane action film and teaser guarantees a full fledged action flick. Tiger’s last film action film Baaghi 2 had made 2cr on its opening day which is among top 10 all time opening days in Pakistan.
We will also have Hrithik Roshan with him this time so this will be a fitting and effective combination which will take a massive start at the boxoffice. We will not be surprised if this film opens above 3cr.
The only film this year which has chances of beating this film will be Salman Khan’s Dabangg 3. Salman Khan is easily the biggest boxoffice star in Pakistan and if Dabangg 3 sees a simultaneous release in Pakistan then it will easily open bigger than WAR. But for now Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff starrer is looking set to put boxoffice on fire in October.
