Akshay Kumar’s BABY releases on 2700 screens tomorrow and the pre-release reports are excellent. We expect the film to collect around Rs 8.5 crore on its first day at the box office. If the audience like the film as much as we have (read the review), then the film should show an upward trend from the evening shows tomorrow.
Ideally, considering the costs involved, Baby should open to 10 crore+ on its opening day (which could still be possible if the reports are excellent).
Akshay and Neeraj Pandey’s last film together, Special 26, collected Rs 5.75 crore on its opening day, but that film was competing against a massy-entertainer like ‘ABCD – Anybody Can Dance’.
The only other release this week is Sonam Kapoor’s Dolly Ki Doli, a female-centric film that will rely on word-of-mouth publicity to do well at the box office. We expect the Arbaaz Khan produced film to collect around Rs 1.5 crore on Day 1.

#IndicineFBO is our attempt at predicting the opening day collections of a film, based on trade expectations, interest level amongst the audience and the response that a trailer or music promos get. We have accurately predicted the first day business of two films - Arjun Kapoor’s Tevar and Bipasha Basu’s Alone.
Going to watch Baby in the first weekend! Cann’t wait man! M damn excited.
My day1 prediction: 9.5 crores
Akki is used to giving average opening for almost all his films in last 5yrs. So nothing to worry for him as despite so many average opening he has still managed to give hits like OMG, S26, Holiday and Baby could actually be a super-hit as reviews are simply outstanding
#content is the king
My prediction is 10.5cr-11cr.
Will watch Baby on next sunday……dying to watch it after @indicine’s superb review.
Hope Megastar Akshay Kumar’s movie crosses the four days collection of regional star Vikram movie which is 73 cr…
@alex u know very well that I was having gross collection =nett collection bcz in then u certificate films are made tax free plus it released in dubbed versions in some other south languages also so its unfair to compare regionak films with Bollywood films or vice versa
btw no offence but v all know how ur regional star vikram fared in Bollywood.his raavan and david bombed so badly that he had to give up his Bollywood dreams and concentrate on his superb tamil carrer instead.i hv nothing againt regional films or vikram but ur comment made me say all these
My Prediction for BABY 1st Day: 10crs..
Going to watch it tomorrow…Super Excited!
Sure to collect 13crs + on opening day…. and my predictions have always gone wrong I predicted 29crs + for HNY and it surpassed by huge margin … I hope Baby also does the same .. and prove me totally wrong again..
@Indicine : Why have u predicted so less? there is enough buzz around this movie to cross ur prediction
@Indicine please let users to predict BABY’s collection n jiska close ho please give them free tickets :P :D
My prediction opening day 13cr – 16cr because every site gave 4 or 5 star.
my prediction is 12 cr
Should cross 10cr mark
Buzz is low. Wont cross 10 cr in the opening day. But I hope movie picks up the during the weekend and collect 55 cr in a 4 days extended weekend.
Good luck akki and his fans.
From an Aamir and HR fan.
@Indicine: Where is the Box-Office prediction article? You had earlier told that this would be published just before the release date of the film. I hope it is ready by now. Eagerly Waiting!!
BTW. I would predict the movie to open around 8-9 crores. ATM, not many know that Baby is releasing tomorrow. Seeing tomorrow. Fingers crossed.
@indicine many sites says it has a potential to do 28-30cr in opening day if occupancy is 100% considering no. of screens.
and BABY is not a bad film that may not have even 50% occupancy on its 1st day.
so my prediction for opening day of BABY is around 15 cr.
My prediction is between 12 to 14 cr.
Friday 12 cr
Saturday 15 cr
Sunday 18 cr
Monday 17 cr
Tuesday 10 cr
Wednesday 9 cr
Thursday 8 cr
Total 1st week 89-90 cr
2nd week 38-40 car
Remaining weeks 30 – 40 crs
Total 145 – 155 cr BLOCKBUSTER
8.5 crore is too low. I am expecting 12 crore opening day and 65 crore extended till 26th January.
8.5 crore is too low. I am expecting 12 crore opening day and 65 crore till 26th January.
maybe 15 cr
Whatever may be the opening but the movie would sustain well on weekdays.
@ indicine… Don’t u think u ought to change ur prediction? Is that 8.5 unremovable or what guys…u published your review on baby b4 this article u had all d time to alter ur figures which all of us will understand cos really d review is excellent plus
1. No Clashes with any biggie
2. Other sites giving larger 1st day numbz
3. U guys gave it 4.5stars
4. Its a Neeraj Pandey movie
5.A Superstar like Akshay Star Power Effect!
All these ….8.5crores??
Hmm..Agneepath record seems fragile with BABY review it just depends how d public accepts it..that said JTHJ DN2 Ready(esp content wise) could b on d same boat with Agneepath floating once Baby is rounding up its final collections.
Welcome to 4th 100crores club member Akshay
It will remain somewhere between 9-10cr…not more than that
It will remain between 9-10cr….
Akshay record is not so good as far as opening is concerned specially for last year.
Plus its another Neeraj dark movie with less appeal to audience.8.5 is very well predicted figure..
My prediction 12 crores for opening day. Weekend will be 45 plus and movie will grow as WOM will be very good for Baby !!!!!!!!!!
Waiting for this one. I am from Afghanistan and akshay is very popular here. I am going to Dubai next Sunday and will watch this movie 100%. Hummmmmm
I don’t know if it will release in my country, but I am super excited because reviews are great. so will anyhow watch it on DVD or online. if it releases in my country than in theater for sure.
@suchit : From which country are you ?
@hrithik I am basically from India same country as you.
