Box Office: Understanding the Economics of Sonam Kapoor’s Neerja

By Bollywood Hungama News Network

The Ram Madhvani directed biopic Neerja, based on the life of the PAN AM purser Neerja Bhanot released two weeks ago. The film that featured Sonam Kapoor in the lead essaying the role of

Neerja opened to rave reviews from the critics. If that wasn't all, the audience too took a liking to the braveheart's story giving the film a much needed boost at the box office.

In this box office report, we take a look at the look at the overall profitability for the makers of Neerja. Not surprisingly the film which was made on a modest budget of Rs. 21 crores has

more than recovered its initial expenses. In fact, Neerja has managed to collect a stunning Rs. 50.12 cr at the domestic box office from which approximately Rs. 22.55 cr is the distributors

share. Coupled with the box office earnings from overseas markets, Home Video, Music, Digital & Ancillary Rights and Satellite Rights, the makers of Neerja stand to make approximately Rs.

22.85 cr as profit or roughly 108.83% Return On Investment.
