The movie, which has already drawn big crowds in some preview screenings, being run in the multiplexes in Karachi. "By the way the advance bookings have gone and the crowds that have shown up for the preview screenings Kick should be the biggest grosser in Pakistan and break records," well known film distributor and exhibitor Nadeem Mandviwalla said.

In Pakistan, the record for the biggest box-office collections on the first day and first week are presently held by the Aamir Khan starrer 'Dhoom 3', which raked in a grand total of 240 million rupees while the Shaan starrer, Pakistani blockbuster, Waar had a net collection of 230 million rupees.

"Kick should do better than them because the release timing is good as it is only after 10 days that a high profile new Bollywood movie 'Entertainment' will be released in Pakistan," Nadeem said.

"That means for nearly 10 days there is really no competition for 'Kick' as the new Shaan spy thriller 'Operation one' release has also been delayed by a few months although it was expected to be released on Eid."

Saleem Ahmed who is the manager at Bambino cinema said that the only competition for 'Kick' should come from two big hollywood movies Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Hercules also releasing on Eid.

"But I think Kick will do big business because it is a action thriller with lots of stunts and fights and Salman is a big draw even in Pakistan," he said.

During the last Eid festival holidays, the censor board and ministry of culture and information had banned the exhibition of Salman's thriller 'Ek Tha Tiger' in the country as it had a theme of a Pakistani spy agency in the film.
