After Salman Khan, Eid al-Fitr turned auspicious for Pakistani actress Mahira Khan as her movie "Bin Roye" has turned out to be a big hit worldwide.
Pakistani film "Bin Roye" was released on 16 July worldwide along with Salman's "Bajrangi Bhaijaan". Apart from Pakistan, Mahira's film was released in UAE, UK, US and Canada.
Despite facing competition from big release "Bajrangi Bhaijaan", Mahira's film "Bin Roye" managed to rake in good numbers from the box office.
According to The Indian Express, the film minted $ 138586 (Rs 88.14 lakh) from the US-Canada box office and £165800 (Rs 1.6 crore) from the UK box office.
"Considering the competition from Bajrangi Bhaijaan, these are great figures. We plan to release Bin Roye in more countries in the coming week," Aniket Kawade, Vice-President, B4U told the daily.
"We will definitely release the film in India. The fresh date would be announced shortly," he adds.
A leading film distributor and exhibitor Nadeem Mandviwala also said that "Bin Roye" has helped rebuild Pakistani cinema. He went on to add that "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" and "Bin Roye" have opened to a good number of screens and registered record breaking collection despite facing competition from each other.
