Box Office: Neerja Vs other Women centric films

By Bollywood Hungama News Network

Friday saw the release of the much talked about Sonam Kapoor starrer Neerja. The film, which is directed by Ram Madhvani and tells the story of the 23 year old braveheart Neerja Bhanot, has

been received with rave reviews from the critics and the audiences alike. In fact over the weekend, the film witnessed a massive jump in overall box-office collections.

In this box-office analysis, we take a look at the Opening Weekend collections of Neerja in comparison to previously released women centric films. Though neither of the films are being

ranked, as per this brief comparison, Neerja that collected Rs. 22.01 cr over the weekend follows previous releases like Tanu Weds Manu Returns that collected Rs. 38.15 cr, The

Dirty Picture that collected Rs. 32.70 cr, Mary Kom that collected Rs. 30.6 cr, Piku that collected Rs. 25.22 cr and Heroine that collected Rs. 25 cr.

However, with Neerja continuing to draw audiences to the theatres, all that is left to be seen is whether the final overall collections of the film outbeats previous releases in this
