The film has earned over $4.4 million worldwide, leaving Choorian behind which made a revenue of $4.4 million back then.
Few films in the past did leave Choorian behind in terms of Pakistani rupees, but no one could earn close to the Punjabi film in terms of US dollars.
JPNA reached the milestone with limited screens and shows as compared to Choorian because in 1998 films enjoyed more number of screens and shows.
The credit of JPNA’s success goes to the director Nadeem Baig, the talented cast, and above all to writer, Vasay Chaudhry for penning a good script.
Chaudhry was the first cast member to tweet about the achievement.
