Amjad Rasheed who owns the IMGC entertainment company said the response has been outstanding. Khoobsurat has done extremely well compared to the other Bollywood release Dawaat-e-Ishq, starring Aditya Roy Kapur and Parineeti Chopra.
"No film has ever made Rs 10 million on a non-holiday weekday and this is the first time this has ever happened," he said. He pointed out the highest grossing films in Pakistan including Sharukh Khan's Chennai Express, Salman Khan's Kick and Waar were all released on Eid holidays.
The film, which marks the Bollywood debut of popular Pakistani television star Fawad Khan, was released on 46 screens across the country.
Nadeem Mandviwalla, founder of film distributing company Mandviwalla Entertainment, said Khubsoorat had not only outdone Dawaat-e-Ishq but also Pakistani film Dukhtar.
Khubsoorat had such a high demand that most of the cinema halls, multiplexes and cineplexes are running extra screenings, he said adding some theatres are running five to six shows a day.
Nadeem said the film's success could be attributed to Fawad Khan who has a star power in the country.
