Karachi: Thousands of fans are flocking to cinema halls of Pakistan to watch Aamir Khan and Raj Kumar Hirani's film PK.
Dawn quoted Hassan Rizvi, marketing manager of Distributor Cluv Pvt Ltd as saying that the film is expected to cross Rs 15 crore in Pakistan.
"The primary reasons for PK's success are Rajkumar Hirani and Aamir Khan. Perhaps another reason might be that the film has presented Pakistan in a positive light", Rizvi added. He said, many watchers are flocking to theatres because of word-of-mouth publicity.
The newspaper quoted a cinegoer as saying that she watched the film thrice. "Firstly, because it has Aamir Khan, and secondly, because it addresses the theist question in such an effective manner. With religious extremism on the rise in both India and Pakistan, PK is an excellent film that deals with such pressing issues".
Another cinegoer commented: "PK is intelligent and funny. While people are calling it preachy, I'd beg to differ because I didn't feel any imposition in the film. And yes I would see it again."
