In a list of two movies releasing this Friday, Baby is one of them. Starring Akshay Kumar and Taapsee Pannu, the movie is an action drama depicting the security issues of the country being managed sagaciously by the intelligence. The movie is directed by Neeraj Pandey of Special 26, while produced by the T Series owner Bhushan Kumar. The movie is expected to hit in around 2000 plus theatres all across India and has already created much of the buzz with some of the best action scenes and power packed performance of Akshay Kumar. Initially the movie had a good buzz; however, it failed to continue due to low key promotional events.
This will therefore not help in getting a big opening to the film unlike the PK or Kick, yet the opening would better than the average pushing the collection to around 15 crores on day one, followed by 17 and 19 crores respectively. Thus the first weekend box office collection prediction for Baby would be around 51 crores, while similar figure would be witnessed on Monday, which happens to be a holiday considering the Republic Day, which turns out a perfect match of theme to the film Baby giving a decent collection at the end of the extended weekend.
