Sonam Kapoor starrer Neerja performed exceptionally well at the box office in both domestic and overseas markets. Though the movie didn’t have an excellent opening on Friday, the positive reviews and words of mouth publicity brought the moviegoers to the theaters and as a result of that the movie enjoyed approx 50% daily growth and posted an excellent total in the very first weekend.
As per the box office reports, the movie amassed 22.01 crores in first 3 days [Fri 4.70 cr, Sat 7.60 cr, Sun 9.71 cr.] at the domestic box office. Movies with positive words of mouth have always performed at the ticket counters in the long run, so there is enormous chance that Neerja is going to remain rock steady during weekdays and the first week collection might cross 40 crores figure. The film also grossed 10.70 crores in the international markets in first 3 days and it might post a decent total in the overseas markets, too.
