Baby 5th Day Collection: As per early estimates, Akshay Kumar starer Baby collected 6 crores on 1st Tuesday at Box Office.
Akshay Kumar’s action-thriller Baby was released this Friday along with Dolly Ki Doli. After getting an average start at Box Office with opening day collection of 9.3 Crores, the movie has shown good growth on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Released on around 2500 screens the movie collected around 15.6 crores on its 1st Sunday at domestic Box Office. On Monday, the movie remains flat with the collection of 14.9 Crores.
We have already predicted in our Box Office Prediction section that Baby wouldn’t be getting a big opening at Box Office. Like Neeraj Pandey’s previous movies, Baby too got superb reviews from critics. The WOM from the public has been tremendous which has certainly boosted up the Box Office numbers. Baby collected around 6 crores on its first Tuesday which is good considering that most of the Bollywood movies fall by around 50% on the first weekday.
Akshay Kumar enjoys a good fan following in mass centres but since Baby is not a typical masala entertainer, it got a slow start in mass centres like U.P, Bihar, MP and Rajasthan. The movie has good occupancy in high-end multiplex cities like Delhi/NCR, Bangalore, Mumbai and Pune. The movie was released along with Dolly ki Doli which though being a small release has certainly eaten up a good number of screens. Dolly Ki Doli was released on around 800 screens.

The first weekend Collection of Baby is less than Akshay Kumar’s last two release Entertainment and Holiday. Holiday collected around 41 crores in its opening weekend while Entertainment has a collection of 36.6 crores.
Baby is riding high on good WOM and rave reviews by critics. The movie has shown tremendous growth in first four days of its release. Baby is expected to have a long run at domestic Box Office as there are no big releases next week. The movie is made on a budget of around 75 crores and is expected to recover it by end of second weekend. It would be interesting to see if it becomes the first 100 crore grosser of 2015.
