Neerja 7th Day Collection: 1st Week Performance Report

Neerja 7th Day Box Office Collection

Ram Madhvani’s recent release Neerja has become the talk of the town. Be it the incredible script or the fabulous performance by Sonam Kapoor, Neerja has grabbed eyeballs ever since its release. The film, which tells the story of a real-life hero Neerja Bhanot, has struck the right chord with the audience. After a fabulous opening weekend, the film continues to cast its spell at the ticket windows. Within Six days of its release, Neerja has already minted Rs 32 crore at the box office. The biopic is unstoppable at the box office. With each passing day, the film has managed to maintain its pace at the box office. The heart-wrenching biopic, Neerja, which released on February 19, has already become a hit with the audience.

Neerja made a decent opening day performance on it first day of release. It has been full one week to the film released by now and in total 1 week journey it has done a pretty well job. The film was not made with nay high cost but due to its powerful story and high expectations it made the audience expect higher out of it. Total 7 days performance of Neerja can be said as decent enough looking at the statistics.


Sonam brings to life the story of a 22-year-old Pan Am flight attendant who gave up her life to save 360 passengers on board. Neerja, posthumously, became the youngest recipient of India’s highest civilian award for bravery, The Ashok Chakra, while Pakistan also bestowed the prestigious Tamgha-e-Insaaniyat Award to her for showing incredible human kindness during the hijack. The biopic also stars Shabana Azmi, Yogendra Tiku and Shekhar Ravjiani in pivotal roles. Though there was not exactly any big competition for this film on box office but still it has to suffer many obstacles in order to make its position.

Firstly being a biopic the film took risk because of picking up someone’s whole life among the audience. Secondly lack of masala element in the film was also one of the factors as audience nowadays has a taste for such films. Finally only Sonam Kapoor being the lead of the film, it is quite difficult to hold a whole film on single support. But crossing all these hindrances Neerja managed to make a good 1 week business which stands at 35 Crores including its 7th Day Income of around  3.35 Crores.
