One of the most hyperactive actors in Bollywood, arguably more than Salman Khan, Aamir Khan and perhaps even Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar has thrilled audiences with his endearingly ‘innocent’ and yet in-your-face Punjabi attitude that has brought him great returns in terms of box office collections.

Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Baby’ box office collections at the end of the third week are pegged at around Rs 92 crore in the domestic circuit alone. Along with more than Rs 10 crore it has generated from the international markets, ‘Baby’ gross box office  collections have now surpassed the Rs 100 crore mark as per latest available data – the film is unlikely to hit the three-figure mark within India.

Though a good film from all accounts, ‘Baby’ box office collections, however, have not been as expected. Running in its third week, the film continues to hold the audience’s attention despite new releases, though critical acclaim has failed to translate into big box office business. As the movie nears the fourth weekend, collections have, in fact, fallen to lakhs despite positive words of mouth and now seems unlikely to cross the Rs 100 crore mark in the domestic market.

Regarded as Akshay Kumar’s best film till date, ‘Baby’ ranks as the actor’s fourth highest grosser. Reuniting Akshay with director Neeraj Pandey, the film has garnered rave reviews from the audience and critics alike.

According to Manoj Desai of G7 Cinemas, “Baby is a wonderful film, but sadly it isn’t doing well at our theatres. Currently the occupancy is about 50-55 per cent.”

While Akshaye Rathi, exhibitor and distributor, commented, “Baby has sustained well and has continued to have limited number of shows all over.”

Take the opinion poll and tell us what you think:

Last week was not good for films like ‘Khamoshiyan’, ‘Hawaizaada’ and ‘Rahasya’ failed to take off. While Hawaizaada only managed Rs 3.55 crore in the first week, Khamoshiyan earned Rs 9.15 crore. But, ‘Baby’ continued its run at the box office ending the third weekend at Rs 89.14 crore.

        I am talking about only the biggest hits. HNY is lesser than CE. D3 is less than PK. So that is why I have not mentioned D3 and HNY.

                    I don't measure someone's talent in crores, I measure it in how much they make me smile as a viewer. I know Akshay's superb comic timing easily outcles any other star, and he makes me grin the most by far.

                          Of course “Baby” would not make it to the 100 crore club even thought it was a great movie. This movie was not your typical Bollywood ma or Bollywood love story. It made you think for yourself and 99 percent of your Indian audiences cannot do that, if the plot is not straight forward they do not get it. Most good, non-typical Bollywood movies do not make it to the 100 crore club and unfortunately this trend will continue because your audiences are only accustomed to the typical Bollywood movies; for 100 years it has been this way, from generation to generation.
