Talking about Neerja, trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, "#Neerja is FLYING HIGH. Day-wise growth in biz clearly indicates it has won hearts and conquered the box-office. Sun biz was TERRIFIC...''
''#Neerja is a shining example of a BRILLIANT film backed by well-planned and executed distribution strategy and superb marketing... #Neerja goes from strength to strength. Fri 4.70 cr, Sat 7.60 cr, Sun 9.71 cr. Total: ₹ 22.01 cr. India biz. FAB! #ContentIsKing."
Taran Adarsh added, "With an IMPRESSIVE weekend total on hand, #Neerja is expected to dominate on weekdays too, with metros/plexes contributing HANDSOMELY..."
It is expected that Neerja will perform well even next week as no big release is there. According to trade analysts Neerja's business will not get affected by Aligarh and Tere Bin Laden: Dead Or Alive.
However, the movie will face a tough competition when Priyanka Chopra's Jai Gangaajal will release on 4th March.
Neerja is the story of a brave woman named Neerja Bhanot, who was murdered while saving passengers from terrorists on board Pan Am Flight 73 which was hijacked on September 5 in the year 1986.
