Sonam Kapoor starrer Neerja has yesterday completed its 2nd week at the Indian box office and surprisingly the film is still going strong as the other releases for the past two weeks failed to impress the audience. On Thursday, it collected Rs 1.76 crores and it now stands at Rs 57.75 crore after the end of week 2.
This is certainly one of the biggest smash hits of the year and currently the second highest grosser of 2016 only behind to Akshay Kumar’s Airlift (Rs 130 crore). Being made with the paltry budget of around Rs 21 crore, Neerja has not only got the critical acclamation but also hit the box office with a storm. It already doubles its cost of production and now on the way to add some more bucks in its kitty.
If we talk about the box office numbers, the next big targets which Neerja would surely get past are Kahaani (Rs 59 crore), Queen ( 61 crore) and Marry Com ( Rs 64 crore) but it still has a doubt to surpass the collections of Deepika Padukone’s Piku ( Rs 84 crore).
Although, Priyanka Chopra starrer Jai Gangajal that is releasing today might affect its strong position but then it already become super hit.
