This Ram Madhvani’s directorial is still featured on some cities and because it is now tax free in more than 10 states of the country, it might get some footfalls in coming days the film will get closer to Rs 70 crore mark. This is surely an achievement for a film that has made with the budget of Rs 21 crore. Neerja is the second highest grosser of this year till date.
On the other hand, another woman centric film Jai Gangajal that features Priyanka Chopra as tough Police Officer is going on steady.
After finishing its first week, the film has collected a total amount Rs 29.50 crore, just short of Rs 30 crore. This Prakash Jha’s film has already recovered its cost of production (25 crore) and now riding on to get the revenues.
The coming second weekend is very crucial for jai Gangajal and the next target of the makers would be to get closer to Rs 40 crore but for that it should maintained the decent run at the box office because Himesh Reshammiya starrer Teraa Surroor is hitting the screens today and it might affect the steadiness of Jai Gangajal.
