Hobbs and Shaw is in its 4th week of release and the film has emerged a Super Hit in Pakistan. The film has already become fifth highest grossing English film in Pakistan. Since last year, English films have started to rake in massive numbers at Pakistani boxoffice.
Two years back, PKR 150 million mark seemed an impossible task for English films. Before 2019 only five English films had managed to hit PKR 150 million mark in Pakistan but in 2019 four films have already crossed 150 million mark. Earlier this year, Avengers: Endgame became first English film to hit PKR 300 million mark.
When we look at all time list then only four English films have managed to hit PKR 200 million mark in Pakistan. Two of them are Avengers movies whereas other two are Fast and Furious movies. Now Hobbs and Shaw has collected around PKR 187 million till now and very soon it will hit 200 million mark becoming 5th English film to reach that mark.
Out of top 5, three positions belong to Fast and Furious series. This tells that Fast and Furious is the biggest brand for English movies in Pakistan followed by Avengers. Below are top English grossers in Pakistan with release year in brackets.
