In an industry like Bollywood, it ideally shouldn't have gone past the first narration, but a young female star not only produced that idea but has backed the film till its release. And Anushka Sharma's gamble has paid off and how! The Navdeep Singh-directed 'NH10' has been cruising at the box office.

Released on Friday the 13th of March, 'NH10' has gone on to collect Rs 20.6 crore in its first week and a further Rs 5.23 crore in its second weekend, taking its total 10-day collection to Rs 26 crore. It has also raked in 1 million US dollars as overseas collection.
Anushka says, "I was always confident about 'NH10' scoring big with the audiences. Conventional wisdom might make it sound dark and violent, but it also connects emotionally and so well made that everyone could get into Meera's shoes and spend that nightmare of a night out there. The box office jackpot will only inspire us to continue on the same path and make films like 'NH10'."
