Karachi: Sonam Kapoor and Fawad Khan-starrer Khoobsurat has earned Rs 3 crore in its opening weekend at the Pakistan box office.
The film marks the Bollywood debut of Pakistani television star, Fawad Khan, and it was released on 46 screens across Pakistan.
Amjad Rasheed, owner of IMGC Entertainment, said this was the first time this has ever happened because no Pakistani film has ever made Rs 1 crore on a non-holiday weekday.
It was previously reported that Khoobsurat had comprehensively beaten the Yash Raj Films, ‘Daawat-e-Ishq’, in advanced bookings in cinemas in Pakistan.
It is also said that the comedy film, jointly produced by Disney India and Anil Kapoor Films Company, has had such high demand that cinema owners had to increase the number of shows per day from the initially decided three shows per day to the current seven to eight shows a day.
