Shahrukh Khan is another promising contestant with a lot of star power in Pakistan. The actor has opted out of Saare Jahan Se Accha. In addition, Farhan Akthar has clarified that he will not be making Don 3 as of yet. Therefore, it is uncertain which film will Shahrukh Khan be doing now? Shahrukh Khan is likely to do a film and his film has fair chances of contesting with leading films. If Shahrukh Khan is able to create a film with good content, then his film will definitive feature among toppers of 2019.

Only one Akshay Kumar starrer has chances to deliver this year in Pakistan which is Houseful 4. Film will definitely open big but will find it difficult to hold on in long run as Indian comedies usually do not do big at boxoffice in Pakistan.
Then Rohit Shetty’s Suryavanshi will have some good initials but again as Akshay is not a big star in Pakistan, numbers won’t go as high as Simmba or Singham. However, if the content of these films is good, then Houseful 4 and Suryavanshi both have chances of hitting 10cr mark in Pakistan.
It is also important to mention that there are many other Indian films releasing such as Ajay Devgn’s Total Dhamaal and multiple Varun Dhawan films. Any film may surprise as audience tends to respond to good content. Any film that has powerful content can create an impact.
Salman Khan starrer Bharat and Ranbir Kapoor’s Brahmastra are anticipated to lead provided no film come from Shah Rukh Khan in 2019. However, as we are unsure of Bharat’s release in Pakistan, the only film which has chances of going over 30 crores mark in Pakistan is Brahmastra .
