Superstar Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Baby’ box office collections had an average opening, generating Rs 9.3 crore. According to early reports, the ‘Baby’ movie did well in major cities and this was reflected in its multiplex business takes.

‘Baby’ did well on the weekends too with Rs 11.17 on Saturday and Rs 15.60 crore on Sunday, capping the opening weekend box office collections at  Rs 36.07 crore. What is more, what with the extended weekend running into Monday, the movie’s box office collections are certain to rise.

But ‘Baby’ box office collections failed to reach Rs 100 crore mark in Week 1 crossed the Rs 100 crore mark in spite of having an extended four-day weekend after its release. As expected, the movie has done good business but could have done better with the kind of all around reviews it received.

 

 

With Rs 63.82 crore  from the opening week, ‘Baby’ looks to cross the lifetime box office collections of 2014 release ‘Entertainment’, which made Rs 72.02 crore. But it remains to be seen whether the movie can become the first film to enter the Rs 100 core club in 2015 and mint more money than Akshay’s last year release ‘Holiday – A Soldier Is Never Off Duty’ (Rs 112.45 crore).

Here’s what trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted on ‘Baby’ box office collections on first week:

‘Baby’ movie is Akshay Kumar’s ninth biggest opening day grosser in a list topped by his 2012 release ‘Rowdy Rathore’ (Rs 15.10 crore), ‘Boss’ (Rs 14.5 crore) and Housefull 2 (Rs 14 crore). in 2014, his two movies – ‘Holiday – A Soldier Is Never Off Duty’ and ‘Entertainment’ –  also opened well at Rs 12.18 crore and Rs 11.57 crore respectively.

Read: ‘Baby’ movie review ‘Baby’ box office collections might not have been earth-shattering, but the business will definitely pick up with the extended weekend ahead because of the Republic Day. Here’s what Adarsh tweeted on ‘Baby’ box office collections on the opening day:

Neeraj Pandey-directed ‘Baby’ has garnered good reviews from critics and the word of mouth publicity too has been positive. Also, expectations have been at an all-time high after the first lot of releases this year failed to make any impact at the box office.
