Box Office: ‘Baaji’ Scores the Highest Second Weekend of the Year

ARY Film’s release “Baaji” has been showing a good hold at the box office since its release on June 28. The film was released on a regular Friday, that too during the ICC world cup. Nonetheless, the film has been fighting off all these odds despite a genre that attracts only a niche audience. Due to the bold outlook of the film’s trailer and a few of its songs, the film was anticipated to not attract the family audience, however, much to our surprise, “Baaji” has been bringing more female audiences than any recent release over the weekdays and second weekend, as per exhibitors.
