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.
