Neerja movie has taken superb start on day one at box office. Film although started slow on Friday (1st day) showed jump with each passing show and reported big jump from Evening onwards. Initial word of mouth of Neerja is superb and hence we may expect good jump on Saturday (2nd day) and Sunday (3rd day).
Neerja started slowly in Morning shows with occupancy reported around 20%. Occupancy is not that bad considering Friday was working day. But when limited screening of film is taken in account start was slow. However film picked up in Noon to record occupancy in the region of 30% or little more than that. Film showed big growth from Evening onward and for rest of the day occupancy was around 55%.
