According to reports, the movie earned more than PKR50 million on the first day of its release.

After such an overwhelming response, the star studded cast is over the moon. The protagonist, Humayun Saeed, who flawlessly played the role of Fawad Khagga, expressed his immense gratitude thanking fans for their endless support in a heartfelt note that he recently posted on social media. The post read out:

 “I’m so, so grateful to Almighty Allah first and foremost. And then to all of you, wherever you are, for all this love you have showered upon us. Punjab Nahi Jaungi has managed to capture hearts of a larger audience across the world and has emerged as a true winner.”

The unprecedented success it has achieved in such a short period of time is certainly beyond our expectations. Whether its Norway or Canada, the US, the UK or Qatar or UAE, Punjab Nahi Jaungi has been running house full and continues to shatter records in spite of tough competition from several big budget and multi-starrer international films,” he said.

Saeed further added, “The unprecedented success it has achieved in such a short period of time is certainly beyond our expectations. Whether its Norway or Canada, the US, the UK or Qatar or UAE, Punjab Nahi Jaungi has been running house full and continues to shatter records in spite of tough competition from several big budget and multi-starrer international films.”

He went on to say, “I can’t thank you enough for all the wonderful feedback you have been sending. Just know that I have been reading every single message and couldn’t be happier. I hope I am always able to meet your expectations and can make you even more proud in the future.”
