Bilal Lashari and Ammara Hikmat’s magnum opus cannot be stopped by anything other than themselves. Despite the fact that The Legend of Maula Jatt has only been released for a little over two weeks, it has already accomplished a historic milestone. Fawad Khan and Hamza Ali Abbas-starrer PKR 100CR ($4.5 million) is the world’s first film to cross PKR 100 crore ($4.5 million) on a global scale, according to Deadline.
According to the publication, the Legend of Maula Jatt was bringing in PKR115 crore ($5.2 million) at the box office through Tuesday. A total of PKR33 crore ($1.5 million) of the movie’s revenues are generated from the home market and PKR82 crore ($3.7 million) is generated from offshore markets. The film is the highest-grossing Punjabi movie in the UK with £1 million – the highest grossing Punjabi film in history.”
Moreover, according to the report, more than $728,000 have been achieved through two weekends in the US, and $525,000 have been achieved through Sunday in Canada. Midweek performances have also been good, notably in the UK, Canada, and Australia
A strong response to the movie has begun on the 10th day of its release and it seems as though it may have surpassed two recent Bollywood films at the global box office. It has been reported that two Diwali releases, Ajay Devgn and Sidharth Malhotra’s Thank God and Akshay Kumar and Jacqueline Fernandez’ Ram Setu, have failed to attract an international audience. The Indian film trade analyst has taken to Twitter to share that the Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan-starrer has been able to pull in more sales on its 13th day than the aforementioned Indian films were able to do on their day of release in December.
‘The Legend of Maula Jatt on 13th day is higher than both Bollywood films on their first day on their first day,’ Nahta shared in a tweet, noting “Ram Setu and Thank God at least managed fair collections on day one in India on account of Diwali holiday, but both were poor overseas. Pakistani film The Legend of Maula Jatt on 13th day is higher than both Bollywood films on their first day,” said Nahta.
His claim was further supported by numbers he shared from multiple countries to support him. On Tuesday, October 25, the following data has been provided by the Ministry of Information in Canada: “The Legend of Maula Jatt: $31,183. Punjabi [film] Honeymoon: $20,923, Thank God: $14,444; and Ram Setu: $12,714.
The Legend of Maula Jatt is ranked at £32,261, based on the 13th day of the film on Tuesday, October 25. Ram Setu’s day one number was £11,794 and Thank God’s day one number was £11,884. Nahta also revealed Australia’s day-one number, which was $10,282. Ram Setu’s day one number was $11,307 and Thank God’s day one number was $9,273.
