Fast & Furious 7 races all the way to the top at Pakistan’s Box-Office.

By Momin Ali Munshi

That Fast & Furious 7 would open to record sales in Pakistan  was a fact that everyone knew. Well the film was an established franchise, easily one of the biggest film franchises in the world, plus the real-life death of Paul Walker( one of the main characters in the film) was further going to add to #Furious7 mania as people would see the film to pay the late actor a tribute. But no one could have thought, even in their wildest dreams, that the film would open in Pakistan the way it has.

Here I would like to mention that its a well  known fact that Bollywood films connect better with the Pakistani audiences as compared to Hollywood or the local counterpart Lollywood films. Why? Well firstly there is  a language barrier, which though is being taken care of with Urdu dubbing, and Bollywood appeals much more to the massed and well Lollywood has not established its firm market as of yet.

For it was like all the stars from the galaxy had landed in Lahore’s Royal Palm this Wednesday for a spectacular night of glitz and glamour. Fashion, Film, Television, Music, you name it and the who’s who from the industry was present. What was the event you ask?

And leading the frontier at this event was our Lollywood industry with actors  from 2015’s prominent releases taking charge at this event. The hosting was done by “Jalaibee’s” Wiqar Ali Khan and “Karachi Se Lahore Tak” star Ayesha Omar.
