Bollywood films got banned in Pakistan in 2019. Before that, Indian movies were making a great profit in Pakistan. Bollywood got a huge loss after the ban.

Several movies of great stars such as Shahrukh Khan, Amir Khan, failed to make business in Pakistan.

According to sources, Indian movies used to make a minimum of $17-$18m profit from Pakistan. Sources revealed that Kabir Singh could have made $ 2m, Salman Khan’s movies could have gained a profit of $ 3m, Total Dhammal and Houseful 4 could have generated a great profit of $2m altogether.

Other films released last year such as Chhichore, Dreamgirl, etc. could have gained many audiences in Pakistan. Films of superstars such as Khans used to be admired a lot.

On a whole, Bollywood could have generated around $ 20m profit in Pakistan which would have increased its overseas gross over $100m.

If the ban on Bollywood remains this year too, several Indian blockbusters would be lined up for this year.

Sonic the Hedgehog hopes to earn $50 million this weekend

Sonic the Hedgehog hopes to boom loudly over weekend with a four-day debut in the $45 million-$50 million range.

The adventure pic, based on Sega’s video game about the world’s speediest hedgehog, is easily expected to race ahead of a crowded pack of films and top the holiday frame.

From Paramount, the live-action and CGI hybrid sees the titular character (voiced by Ben Schwartz) team up with a small-town sheriff (James Marsden) to battle the evil genius Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey).
