Naam Shabana hit the screens yesterday and received rave reviews from all. Although the Akshay Kumar and Taapsee Pannu starrer is enjoying positive word of mouth, it failed to garner good numbers at the Box Office.
Talk about morning shows, Naam Shabana witnessed just a 15 percent occupancy, which is way too less. The evening shows were expected to see a growth, but unfortunately, the numbers remained low.
Compared to other regions, Gujarat and Hyderabad saw good collections. Since it is a woman centric film, the response is not as expected. Let’s see how much the film minted on its first day i.e. Friday.
#NaamShabana gets a boost due to Akshay’s star power… Evening shows fare better… Fri ₹ 5.12 cr. India biz.

On Friday, Naam Shabana garnered 5.12 Crores, which is not that bad. Credit goes to the director as it is an Akshay Kumar starrer, if it, wasn’t it wouldn’t have earned over 2-3 Crores.
The movie also stars Anupam Kher, Prithviraj Sukumaran and Manoj Bajpayee in pivotal roles. It is a prequel to “Baby”, which is why the audience has shown some interest in knowing more about Taapsee and Akshay’s characters.
The collections are likely to rise on the weekend.
