Eid is just few days away and three films are set to battle it out for the top position over the Eid period. Eid-ul-Azha is falling on Monday which means that the films will have a long week of Eid influx which will go till Sunday. All the three films feature young and emerging superstars of the industry.
Firstly, Sheheryar Munwar has three films under his belt and this is his 4th film. He debuted at the silver screen with Ho Mann Jahaan which turned out to be a major HIT. Then he appeared opposite Mahira Khan once again in 7 Din Mohabbat In.7 Din Mohabbat In couldn’t do much to emerge as a success at boxoffice but the film did manage to open really well at the boxoffice. His latest release was Project Ghazi earlier this year which was a major disappointment at boxoffice. With Parey Hut Love he is back with Asim Raza, the director of Ho Mann Jahaan. The promos and songs on Parey Hut Love has received quite good response so far. The three films of Sheheryar has done over PKR 280 million.
Stakes are quite high for Shehryar with Parey Hut Love as he is in the production seat too this time after Ho Mann Jahaan. Parey Hut Love will definitely open big but to ensure HIT status the film will need to hold exceedingly well after Eid Week.
Secondly, Bilal Ashraf has also done three films. Actor started career with Janaan which had emerged a good success at the boxoffice and that was followed by Yalghaar. Yalghaar did manage to do good business but the film had very high budgets hence it wasn’t a boxoffice success. Third one was Rangreza which released couple of years back and it had bombed at the boxoffice. Combined business of the three films of Bilal Ashraf goes over PKR 350 million.
With Superstar Bilal Ashraf will be scoring his highest grossing film till date and the combined business of his films will be hitting PKR 500 million mark. The response to Superstar has been phenomenal and it looks like that film has very bright chances of leading at the boxoffice over first three days of Eid.
Thirdly, Ali Rehman Khan has done only two films . He started with a success in Janaan and then went on to do Parchi. Parchi wasn’t a big grosser but the film was a plus economically. The combined gross of two films of Ali Rehman Khan stands over PKR 260 million.
Heer Maan Ja is third venture of Ali Rehman Khan and it is with the same team of Janaan and Parchi. The film has seen pretty good response to music so far and it will open well due to huge influx of Eid but the film will need to hold well post first week.
Advance bookings of all the three releases are open at the major multiplexes across Pakistan.
