Neerja has become a hit after the passage of one, which was not the case on day one though. The film has managed to get a decent opening in the first weekend, which continued to garner in the same pace during the weekdays as well giving a good figure at the end of the first week. Though the film stands with a female character at the center but it managed to attract the audience far and wide. This is how it went on to collect the moolah for it. After having a decent collection day 1, it escalated its collection in its first weekend.
The similar trend went to give a very good figure for a Sonam Kapoor starrer film. As per reports, the first weekend box office collection tolled to around 35 cores, which is really a decent figure for a biopic like this. The applauds for the film came on pouring in from the audience making it a decent hit. In fact, it is among the second hit of the 2016 after Airlift. Interestingly, Ram Madhwani who is known to make different kinds of film and have a niche in those areas has proved that he can do any niche or offbeat film and get things in his favor.
