The box office collection of "Daawat-e-Ishq" and "Khoobsurat" are disappointing in India, but the latter is performing very well in overseas market.
Sonam Kapoor and Fawad Khan starrer "Khoobusrat" has underperformed at the domestic box office, but the film is creating records at Pakistan's box office.
Khan's debut Bollywood film raked in ₹ 1 crore (₹10 million) on a non-holiday weekday. This is the first time any movie has collected such huge amount on a weekday at Pakistan's box office.
"No film has ever made ₹10 million (₹ 1 crore) on a non-holiday weekday and this is the first time this has ever happened," Amjad Rasheed, owner of the IMGC entertainment company, told Press Trust of India.
In its opening weekend, the film garnered more than ₹3 crore from the neighbouring country. The romantic comedy film has shattered the records of Pakistani film "Dukhtar", Nadeem Mandviwalla, founder of film distributing company Mandviwalla Entertainment, told PTI.
However, in India the film has managed to earn only ₹ 13.03 crore from four days. The breakup of the film is: Friday ₹ 2.74 crore, Saturday ₹ 3.74 crore, Sunday ₹ 5.05 crore and Monday ₹ 1.5 crore.
Parineeti Chopra and Aditya Kapur's romantic film "Daawat-e-Ishq" fared better than "Khoobsurat", but the film failed to live up to audiences' expectations.
Audiences had high hopes from "Daawat-e-Ishq" due to lead pair - Chopra and Aditya. The promotion of the film happened on a large scale, which generated curiosity among audience.
But the content and storyline disappointed viewers, which in turn affected the business of the badly. "Daawat-e-Ishq" accumulated around ₹ 15.63 crore in four days from theaters in India.
Here is the four days collection of the film: Friday ₹ 3.72 crore, Saturday ₹4.35 crore, Sunday ₹ 5.53 crore and Monday ₹ 2.03 crore
"It has done better than 'Khoobsurat', but not great," Rajesh Thadani of Multimedia Combines told IANS.
