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.
