‘Baby’ collects Rs 40 crore in first weekend

MUMBAI: The Akshay Kumar starrer Baby opened to a disappointing response with the first day accounting for collections that were a little over Rs 7 crore.


The promos of the movie, had raised hope among the exhibition trade of a bumper opening, coupled with the fact that it would also get an extended weekend run with Monday being a holiday for Republic Day.


Baby finished its four day weekend with Rs 40.1 crore with Sunday figures being the best.


The Sonam Kapoor starrer Dolly Ki Doli fared below average. The film, lacking a drawing power, had a poor opening and showed only marginal improvement on Sunday, which was not enough for it to sail on the safe side. The film has little to offer to help it sustain further. It ended its four day opening weekend with a figure of Rs 9.75 crore.


Crazy Cukkad Family and Sharafat Gayi Tel Lene performed poorly at the box office, collecting Rs 35 lakh and Rs 40 lakh respectively for their first week.


Alone remained average adding little during rest of the week to its opening weekend of Rs 11.4 crore to end its first week run with Rs 17.25 crore.


I (Dubbed) has not been able to live up to the promotion built around it as it were South heroes don’t find a ready acceptance with Hindi viewers. The film has managed to put together Rs 10.1 crore in its first week.


The Arjun Kapoor - Sonakshi Sinha starrer Tevar has added Rs 4.25 crore in its second week to take its two week tally to Rs 37.4 crore.


On the other hand, Aamir Khan starrer PK has collected a reasonable Rs 4.1 crore in its fifth week to take its five week total to Rs 328.3 crore.
