Baby opened below the mark with collections around 20-25% on average. The opening is lower than Akshay Kumar’s last two films Holiday – A Soldier Is Off Duty and Entertainment.
If compared with Entertainment the opening is similar at multiplexes but lower at single screens. The film has just not opened in places like UP, Rajasthan and CI where most Akshay Kumar films start very well irrespective of their final fate. The best start is in the Delhi/NCR belt.
Normally when a big film opens at these numbers it is tough to survive but here reports are decent as fas the multiplex crowd is concerned and there is a big holiday on Monday which will prove to be big advantage if the reports can translate into collections over the weekend. Holiday – A Soldier Is Never Off Duty had started at around 30% but was doing 50-55% in evening and closed on a 11.50 crore nett plus day one. Here the task will be to pick up from mid afternoon and somehow get around the 10 crore nett mark as the Holiday number seems a stiff task.Akshay Kumar Anupam Kher Baby Boxoffice Neeraj Pandey Rana Daggubati Taapsee Pannu
