Neerja has done very well in overseas as well as India despite being a non star cast film. The film may just top the $1.5 million mark beating the likes of Fitoor and Wazir which were bigger films. The film has grossed $575,000 in US / Canada which is the second best opening of the year in that market. Airlift had grossed $816,000.
The figures compare well with other films which were similar to this. The likes of NH 10, Queen, Kahaani and Mardaani have much lower figures while Mary Kom was around $1.20 million and $370,000 in US / Canada.
The trend in US / Canada and Gulf will ensure a good hold in Overseas and a healthy final total.
