23 Dec (Sunday) 09:00pm: Zero is racing ahead of Thugs of Hindostan in first two days at Pakistani boxoffice. Both films have failed to create magic at domestic markets but both films have taken smashing start in Pakistan. Thugs of Hindostan was a solo release and had much more shows compared to Zero and being an action film it had initial pull. But film was held back by Thursday release. Zero has much less shows compared to Thugs due to clash with Aquaman and couple of other films but still film has collected more than Thugs of Hindostan in first two days. Thugs of Hindostan had seen steep fall on Monday and Zero will need to hold well on Monday to have good lifetime total too. Below are the numbers of both releases in first two day.

Can Zero be the 4th to hit the 2 crore opening day benchmark?
21st Dec (Friday) 02.00 pm:So far three of SRK’s movies had opening day record of 2 crore in Pakistan. Two of Salman Khan’s Sultan and Race 3 did such business, Pakistan’s very own Humayun Saeed’s JPNA franchise have reached this benchmark. This makes SRK’s movies to be in the lead with opening day records of Fan, Jab harry met Sajal and Dilwale. Lets see if Zero can join in the league. Based on how well the previous films have done Zero can be expected to make it big on the box office.
Aanand L Rai’s movies’ BO history in Pakistan
21st Dec (Friday) 12.30 pm: Zero is a film by director Aanand L Rai. Previously only one film from this director has been released in Pakistan which was Tanu Weds Manu returns. The film had Madhvan and Kangana Ranut, who are very decent actors, but do not have that much star power in Pakistan. The film raked decently at the box office with a total of approximately 5.5 crores. In case of Zero, the cast has big names who are deeply loved on this side of the border as well. SRK alone is the major pull for fans to head to the cinemas. Consequently we can expect it do much better.
Updated number of shows of Zero
21st Dec (Friday) 11.20 am: Today is the opening day of SRK starrer Zero. We previously according reported that the number of shows allotted to Zero in Pakistan were 360 however the number seems to have increase. According to updates, the total number of shows is now 409.

SRK films have made unbeatable records over Christmas in Pakistan
20th Dec (Thursday) 11.45pm: Srk’s film, Don 2 saw release on Christmas and this film broke all records of Hindi films back in 2011.

Second Shah Rukh Khan film to release on Christmas in Pakistan was Dilwale. This film might not have outperformed in India but it was a huge hit in Pakistan.
Dilwale broke opening day records for Hindi films despite having a clash with Bajirao Mastani back in 2015 and it also went on to collect over 20cr approx which is still the highest grossing film of Shah Rukh Khan in Pakistan. SRK’s films releasing near Christmas have been lucky for the star in Pakistan. Now Zero is releasing near Christmas as it hits the screens tomorrow and we are expecting the same magic to happen.
Can Zero Repeat History Like Jab Tuk Hai Jaan in Pakistan?
20th Dec (Thursday) 10.45pm: Zero is a highly anticipated film under the Red Chillies Entertainment banner starring an extremely powerful cast. What is interesting is that the trio had appeared in Yash Raj film together back in 2012. Jab Tak Hai Jaan was the last film directed by Yash Chopra before his demise. Jab Tak Hai Jaan was the first film ever to hit 1cr mark in a single day in Pakistan. Film had a crazy start in Pakistan and we expect nothing less from Zero. Even though Shah Rukh Khan’s films couldn’t perform well lately but they have always been able to take thunderous start in Pakistan no matter the content.
