The Donkey King has been one of the biggest blockbusters of all time in Pakistani cinema history. Film raked in huge numbers in first four Weeks with marvelous trending. Numbers in Karachi and Rawalpindi/Islamabad were just phenomenal. Thugs of Hindostan released on Thursday and took away huge number of screens and most number of shows from the film. Despite the mega release of Thugs Of Hindostan Donkey King has remained rock solid on it’s 5th Friday.
With early estimates coming in for 5th Friday film is looking to go over 25lacs mark. Considering the whole craze and phenomenon of Thugs of Hindostan this number is very good and film will show huge growths over the Weekend. Film had very limited number of shows on Friday and actually average occupancy was much better than Thugs of Hindostan on it’s 29th day compared to second day of Thugs. Film has taken it grand total close to 17cr approx and will probably hit 18cr over the Weekdays. Looking at the reports of Thugs of Hindostan it looks like Donkey King will see good increment in number of shows next week especially at multiplexes. And if it does happen then we are definitely going to see film hit 20cr mark very soon.

Week One.. 4cr
Week Two.. 5.1cr
Week Three.. 5.05cr
