Pakistan’s most successful animated film Donkey King that did wonders in the country is now shattering some records on foreign soil too. The film in its 5 day-long weekend business in South Korea brought huge numbers and closed on a whopping Rs7.5 million.
Albeit it’s slow to start on the opening day i.e. Friday, the film managed to pace up on the weekend. As per a leading box office site, approximately 67% of the film’s total business rolled in on Saturday and Sunday. Seeing the trend it is expected that Donkey King will be cashing in some massive numbers in the coming weeks as well.
