While the critics on the internet have been in unison with regard to Zero being an under average film, the film has proven other wise in terms of box -office collection in Pakistan.
The 5 day long weekend saw a whopping total of 9 crore 10 lacs(estimated). The opening day of the film managed to cross 2 crore mark with a total of approximately 2.30 crore.
Day 3 total: Approximately 2.25 crore,
Day 4: Approximately 1.85 crore,
Day 5 :Approximately 1.20 crore
On Wednesday the film managed to rake a good amount despite it being the first weekday. According to early numbers coming in the film has made close to 90 lacs in Pakistan.
The number has managed to beat super hit Bollywood films like Baaghi 2 that made 65 lacs on its 6th day.
This box-office collection is the second biggest Wednesday after Sanju. What is intriguing is the fact that even though all these films had received good reviews and Zero has been under fire for not being quite there, yet the movie has still managed to do better. This indicates that not only does SRK has huge fan following but also the film’s content is being harshly judged. It has managed to make 10 crores in 6 days and the numbers can be expected to go further up.
The film will be clashing with Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan’s Simmba which is releasing tomorrow. It will be interesting to see how the film holds in competition with the new release.
