After becoming the highest Bollywood grosser and creating yet another benchmark crossing Rs 300-crore collections in domestic markets, Aamir Khan-starrer PK has been given huge thumbs up in Pakistan.
The film, which has been helmed by Rajkumar Hirani, has not only grossed over Rs 300 crore in India, but has gotten rave reviews and repeat visits in the neighboring country and is expected to cross Rs 15 crore there, the Dawn reported.
Manager Marketing from Distributor Club (PVT) Ltd for the country, Hassaan Rizvi said that the main reasons for the movie's success are Hirani and Khan, with another factor being Pakistan presented in a positive light.
The Pakistanis are loving Khan's loveable depiction of the unaware, inquisitive alien, and a fan, who claimed to have watched the film 3 times already, said, "The film also addresses the theist question in such an effective manner. With religious extremism on the rise in both India and Pakistan, PK is an excellent film that deals with such pressing issues."
