‘The Donkey King’ Becomes the Highest Grossing Animated Movie in Pakistan
Following its spectacular opening weekend, Talisman Studios’ The Donkey King one upped its own box-office performance over the second weekend, beating all trade expectations with collections that defied normal trending for animation features. The movie grossed about 3.75 crores – a whopping jump of around 35% over the previous weekend, indicating a strong long term theatrical run. Owing to the movie’s popularity, especially among the younger audience, theaters across the nation added shows on Saturday and Sunday, and many sites were sold out.

As per trade reports, the movie has subsequently recorded steady collections over the weekdays. It has beaten the box office record of SOC Films’ 3 Bahadur : The Revenge of Baba Balaam this Tuesday by collecting 8.47 crore, to claim the throne of being the highest grossing animated feature in the country. 3 Bahadur had collected approximately 8.1 crore upon its release in the fall of 2016, and having crossed this figure, The Donkey King will achieve the highest grossing record by a large margin over the other animated features.
