The film takes a huge leap on the second Saturday...
Sonam Kapoor's Neerja continues it smashing run at the cinemas as it enters week two. The film was a run away hit at the domestic box office after receiving good reviews and an awesome public reaction. The film, which had managed to collect Rs 35.32 crore by the end of the first week, added another Rs 3.15 crore on Friday. The movie also saw a massive jump as it collected Rs 5 crore on the second Saturday, to take its total collection to Rs 43.47 crore in 9 days!
But what was surprising is that the film managed to collect a very good amount yesterday, when a crucial India versus Pakistan match was taking place at the Asia Cup T20 tournament. As trade analyst Taran Adarsh mentioned in his tweet, "#Neerja has MASSIVE jump on Sat, despite crucial cricket match [Week 2] Fri 3.15 cr, Sat 5 cr. Total: Rs 43.47 cr. India biz. OUTSTANDING!"
The film attracted a huge crowd even during its second week and in this anticipation, the makers made sure the film was shown in 900 theatres this week rather than the 700 theatres in which it was exhibiting at last week. With the huge buzz and amazing occupancy, everyone is expecting the film to cross Rs 50 crore by today. As Taran Adarsh adds, "Looking at the current trending, #Neerja is expected to cross ₹ 50 cr mark today [Sunday]. FANTASTIC!"
Neerja, based on the true life incidents of a brave heart flight attendant - Neerja Bhanot who helped save the lives of 359 people from a hijacked plane, is set to have a good run throughout next week too.
