Humayun Saeed confirmed the third installment of JPNA in a post on Instagram. He shared a picture with the film’s cast and director Nadeem Baig. The actor captioned “JPNA 3 script sessions on the cruise”. While on a cruise to celebrate Salman Iqbal’s wedding anniversary. The team decided to take advantage of their timing as the whole team was together.
With the script of JPNA 3 in the works, one wonders if the film will be able to replicate the performance of its previous installments. The JPNA franchise has definitely become the biggest franchise of Pakistan, being the only film to breach the 50 Cr mark in Pakistan.
Jawani Phir Nahi Ani became the first film in Pakistani’s history to hit the 30cr mark. The film collected 34cr approx back in 2015 which is still the 5th highest grosser of all time till date. Then came the second installment of the brand, which outperformed its first part. Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2 became the first film to hit the 50cr mark. Film has collected 52cr approx at the boxoffice. If the film follows its pattern, then the third part of the franchise is anticipated to outperform its previous part too!
JPNA has truly become a brand in Pakistan. With a stellar cast on board and well directed and executed scenes, the film always does wonders.
With Avengers: End Game, The Legend of Maula Jatt and JPNA 3 on the cards, all of which are hugely acclaimed and anticipated films, the question is which film will be able to break JPNA 2’s records in Pakistan?
JPNA is a tried and tested formula which has been successful in Pakistan. Likewise its third installment is anticipated be a hit. Whereas, The Legend of Maula Jatt has a stellar cast and has managed to impress people with its trailer however the film’s content will determine if the film can breach the 50 cr mark or not! So far people definitely think that the Fawad Khan and Hamza Ali Abbasi starrer will rake in good gains.
This time it will be Fawad Khan VS Humayun Saeed at the boxoffice. While Fawad Khan has been largely absent from the local cinema, Humayun Saeed has been ruling as the boxoffice king. With Fawad Khan’s return after a hiatus, we surely want to know who will create the highest records at the boxoffice!
