Special 26 Box office prediction : Special 26 is set for a decent opening at domestic Box Office
Last year was money minting for Akshay Kumar. He raked in around 400 crores with movies like Rowdy Rathod, Housefull 2 and Oh My God. This year would be no exception as the actor has some Mega releases lined up, like Special 26, Once upon a time in Mumbai again and Boss, in his kitty.
Special 26 will be Akshay’s first release this year, slated to release on Friday it marks the comeback of Neeraj Pandey. Neeraj is well known for his critically and commercially acclaimed A Wednesday. However Special 26 is not a typical Akshay Kumar movie. Most of his movies are so extensively promoted that there is a lot of buzz before the movie hits cinemas. Consider Rowdy Rathode and Housefull 2, with extensive promotion the movies had collected 30+ crores in first 3 days.
Special 26 depends on word of mouth marketing, thus collection would depend on the reviews and responses from audience and critics.
Considering the track record of Neeraj Pandey and Akshay Kumar, these are our predictions on the Box office collections of Special 26.
Day 1: 9 to 11 crores
Day 2: 9 to 11 crores
Day 3: 10 to 12 crores
Total first weekend collections : 27-30 crores
Total first week collections : 45 to 50 crores
Total lifetime collections : 80 to 85 crores
Verdict : Super-hit
