"We are re-releasing  Jackpot because our mega-budget film was given few screens during its first run due to its release coinciding with the mega-hit Sanju.

This is despite the fact that our initial shows ran full house and they were making money off our film as well as Sanju. It was an injustice, " shared Jackpot's producer with Dawn newspaper.

"It should be up to the people whether they want to see the film. It's shouldn't be the cinema owner's decision," he added. The film was described as "a musical comedy that revolves around a lottery ticket that lands itself in one character's coat.


"From there on its travels from Pakistan to Phuket, Thailand and back again to Pakistan, and with it travel other characters running after the lottery, from one country to another. That's why the name is Jackpot," Khurram said.
