Pakistan’s first superhero film Project Ghazi released last Friday. The Sci-fi stars megastars Humayun Saeed and Sheheryar Munawar in lead roles. Film was initially slated to hit the screens back in July 2017 but it got delayed at the last moment due to technical issues. Shelved film Project Ghazi released two years later.
Exclusive: Humayun Saeed has tremendous potential – Nadeem Baig
Film opened with poor numbers on Friday which was the lowest opening for a Humayun Saeed starrer. Project Ghazi has fallen flat over the Weekend and it has completely crashed. Film has registered the lowest numbers for a Humayun Saeed film since 2010 by a huge margin. The film raked in a mere 75 lacs approx over the Weekend and the week is looking to wrap a little over 1 crore approx.
Project Ghazi will be concluding its lifetime run with extremely low numbers. Humayun Saeed’s “Main Hoon Shahid Afridi” released back in 2013 and collected over 5 crores. Six years later, his latest film Project Ghazi won’t even do half of Main Hoon Shahid Afridi.
Humayun Saeed had a 100% track record at the boxoffice prior to Project Ghazi with monstrous blockbusters like Punjab Nahi Jaungi, Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2 and Jawani Phir Nahi Ani. Even his film Bin Roye had emerged a Hit back in 2015 despite clashing with Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Wrong No. 2. Project Ghazi is Humayan Saeed’s first flop since 2010. Although his film Yalgaar was also not well received but it still managed to do a huge business.
Humayun Saeed : King Of Boxoffice For A Reason
Project Ghazi has definitely affected the star’s boxoffice track however will Project Ghazi’s dismal performance affect the stardom of Humayun Saeed?
Humayan Saeed is easily the most bankable Pakistani star at the boxoffice. Even though Project Ghazi has miserably flopped however this will not affect his stardom at all. Project Ghazi was always expected to be a flop at the boxoffice ever since it was delayed back in 2017. Film was never going to become a hit and no star, not even Humayun Saeed could have saved it.
Humayun still has immense power at the boxoffice and he will definitely run riot at the boxoffice with his next one.
