It was last Eidul Azha that we saw release of “Parwaz Hai Junoon”, an underdog compared to other two big releases of Eid that went on to do a surprisingly higher box office than expected.
The film is now adding another feather to its cap by signing a contract for releasing the film across China this year. According to the press release issued by the production house, a contract is signed between producer of film Momina Duraid and Mr Wang Ye of Fire International Media. The signing was part of Pakistan China Trade and Investment Forum – part of the BRF which is being held in Beijing.
It is worth mentioning here that earlier “Parwaaz Hai Junoon” became the first Pakistani film to release commercially in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, (Parchi was screened first but not in theaters) and now it is going to become the first Pakistani film to release in mainland China after a hiatus of fourty years.
This won’t be the first time that Momina’s work is breaking barriers for local film industry internationally, as earlier “Bin Roye” paved ways for Pakistani films in the cinema markets of Middle East, UK, USA, Canada and Australia and became the highest Pakistani box office grosser in overseas market.
