Fox Star Studios have used everything in the promotion of the film and their expectations from the film is definitely much higher than anything. They even made a stimulated copy of passenger plane which was being used by the Pan Am Airlines.
Coming to the Overseas business, it’s not that much positive, the movie yet received a good response from the United States where most of the people are actually connected with Pan Am airlines. Receiving a ban in a country like Pakistan was very unfortunate for a country like Pakistan whose people were saved by N Bhanot.
