Sara Loren and Arshad Warsi starrer Fraud Saiyaan made history in Pakistan by emerging as the only Indian film which did more business in Pakistan than it did in its domestic market. Normally Indian films gross a 10 times greater business in their domestic market than the business they make in Pakistan. However, Fraud Saiyaan registered surprising box office numbers in Pakistan.
One of the major factors that contributed to the success of this film in Pakistan was the presence of the gorgeous Pakistani actress Sara Loren in the film. Her presence drew crowds to the cinemas. The actress was a highly popular actress in Pakistan a few years back, although she is not as popular anymore as she has largely been away from screens. However, she certainly has the potential to come back with a bang. Currently the actress is working on Mohib Mirza’s upcoming film Ishrat Made In China.
Fraud Saiyaan’s box office collection saw ups and downs in Pakistan. The film opened with an estimated 22 lacs. However at the end of its third week run the film raked in 1.80 crore. After four Weeks run, Fraud Saiyaan crossed the 2 crore mark which was 2 % more than its opening numbers in India.
This also become Arshad Warsi’s highest grosser to date at Pakistani Box Office. His film Golmal Again raked in 12 crore but that was a multi-starrer film. If we talk about a solo release of Arshad Warsi, then this is by far the highest grosser.
