Naam Shabana, starring Taapsee Pannu, remained steady at the domestic box office on its eighth day. The film is moving at a snail's pace at the box office but is still consistently bringing in the numbers.
On its eighth day, Naam Shabana collected about Rs 1.5 crore at the Indian box office.
After a slow start on Friday, March 31, Naam Shabana gradually drew the audience to the theatres, owing to the positive word-of-mouth publicity. Akshay Kumar's presence also boosted the film's overall collection.
