Neru, which hit the screens in December 2023, has now crossed the Rs 65-crore mark at the Kerala box office. The courtroom drama has now emerged as Mohanlal’s 3rd all-time highest grosser.
Neru, the courtroom drama that hit the screens in December 2023, has now emerged as one of the biggest successes of last year. Mohanlal played the role of advocate Vijayamohan, a senior lawyer in the movie, which marked his fifth onscreen collaboration with hitmaker Jeethu Joseph. As it completes the first 11 days of its release, Neru has crossed the Rs 65-crore mark at the worldwide box office and has broken the 10-year-old record of Mohanlal and Jeethu Joseph’s blockbuster film, Drishyam.
Neru breaks the record of Drishyam
The courtroom drama, which has emerged as a massive critical and commercial success, has now crossed the lifetime collections of Drishyam. Neru has made a total collection of over Rs 65 crore at the worldwide box office, within the first 11 days of its release. Thus, the Jeethu Joseph directorial has now also emerged as the third all-time highest grosser in the career of its leading man Mohanlal, after Pulimurugan and Lucifer. It is clearly a major achievement for the Jeethu Joseph directorial, which was made with a moderate budget and was released without a massive pre-release hype.
Neru 11 days' collection report
The Mohanlal-starrer has made a total collection of Rs 34.16 crore from the Kerala box office, from the first 11 days of its release. Neru made Rs 3.31 crore from KBO on its second Sunday at the theatres. The movie has made over Rs 65 crore from the worldwide box office in total and is expected to enter the Rs 70-crore club in a couple of days. If the movie continues to impress at the box office, the Mohanlal-starrer might even enter the 100-crore club while taking into account its total business.
Anaswara Rajan played a pivotal role in Neru, which also stars Priyamani, Siddique, Jagadish, KB Ganesh Kumar, Sree Dhanya, Kalesh Ramanand, Nandu, Santhi Mayadevi, Krishna Prabha, Aditi Ravi, and others in pivotal roles. The Mohanlal-starrer, which is bankrolled by Antony Perumbavoor under the banner of Aashirvad Cinemas, is slated to have its OTT release in January 2024, on Disney+ Hotstar.
