Special 26 Box Office Collection: First Day

Special 26Released on 1586 screens across the country, Akshay Kumar’s Special 26 was off to a shockingly poor start on Friday morning, but collections improved quite significantly for the evening and night shows, especially at premium multiplexes in big cities.

The film has done well in Delhi, Mysore and Mumbai. West Bengal, Bihar, Rajasthan were poor. The Neeraj Pandey film had was poor at single-screens, where it had a limited release.

As per early estimates, the Akshay Kumar starrer has collected Rs 6 crores net on Day 1, which is decent considering the genre of the film and the release size.

Saturday and Sunday remain crucial though, as the costs of Special 26 are quite high due to Akshay’s presence.

The reports are very good and reviews have largely been positive. If the film manages to show good growth over the weekend and consolidates during the weekdays, it might have a long and steady run at the box office.

  • Thanks for putting the estimates so early. 6 crores is good for a film that was released on less than 1600 screens. Hope the movie does 7-8 cr on Sat and 10 cr on Sunday

  • Boxofficeindia

    Special Chabbis grossed around 5.50-5.75 crore nett as per early estimates thanks to good collections in the evening as even a 4 crore total looked tough on the morning collections. The film has been released on 1575 screens and sold for hefty prices in many circuits so the despite the turnaround collections are still below the mark.

    The film should show a jump on Saturday and Sunday but it needs a good run to score at the box office. The best collections were in the Delhi and Gurgaon area while West Bengal and Bihar fared very poorly.

    In Mumbai the film has been sold for around 12 crore and the first weekend share will be around 4 crore if the film gets the normal 20% growth over the weekend making recovery a very task, it will need 50% growth on Saturday and Sunday to get close to recovery.

  • 6 cr opening to this kind of genre and release size is very good.i dont know why all the media trying to bring down akshay.yesterday 11am noon shows were started,and from 11:30am everyone started to bash the movie that movie is flop,low opening,less than ‘abcd’,even indicine also did the same thing.what happend now.spl26 will give a big blow to all haters.

  • Special26 its a awesome movie everyone should watch movie full of entertainment til end ***** for movie n the whole team of Special Chabbis acting and direction is superb

  • Looks like the movie will have a 18-25 crore 1st weekend and a 30-42 crores 1st week which will below average for a movie of its budget. It has to do pretty good business in the 2nd & 3rd weeks to earn some profit and sustain the momentum in the remaining days to emerge successful. With abcd’s declining interest & almost 4 open weeks for a long run, special 26 has a decent enough chance to become a hit. Hoping for the best.

  • @yasir ! we all know that special 26 is 1000 times better than south remakes and fake love stories.
    just wait and watch the result. this will be the finest movie of 2013

  • is he a superstar ??
    sunny leone’s starrer film doing well at box office bt nt akhsay’s….hahaha wht a superstar !!

  • Akshay has again dissapointed in giving opening like always. This eid Salman willl kick him at ticket counter.

  • more thn hype nothin in the movie suddenly akki fans talking abt reviews of biased writers…some many movies every year gets 4 star rating for example guajaarish is much better film given 4stars it is performance oriented film…akshay did anythin new in the film manoj bajpai and anupam kher are far better acotrs thn akki and salman..

  • akki is he a super star? the movie as a awsome , I will be give star 4/5, akki as a rocks, I hope akki is a bigest star of the bollywood,

  • Omg took 4.5 cr start and collected 82 cr according to boi. S26 take 5.75 cr opening so it will go 100+ cr as it got appericiation. So dont worry akki fans.

  • a movie made for just 24 crores..will b surely superhit after sunday…AKKI has cut down his remuneration to 1/4th just for this movie.its not at all big budget…so an easy recovery and growth expected!!
