While the film’s
opening day collection was average, it received a higher opening than last week's
Anushka Sharma-starrer Phillauri (Rs 4.02 cr).
According to the trade pundits, Taapsee Pannu's Naam Shabana is getting an extra footfall because of Akshay Kumar's superb cameo and Baby's fantastic box-office collection record.
Baby had registered an approx figure of 9 crore on its Day 1. However, the film featured Akshay Kumar in lead, while its prequel, Naam Shabana, has him only in a cameo.
Shabana, is a tough spy with a take-no-prisoners attitude and the film follows her on an important mission and it is quite the ride. The film revolves around Shabana, who joins the Indian secret service, to extract revenge on her boyfriend’s killers. Taapsee is seen in a de-glam avatar in the film, stripped of make-up and glamorous clothes. Film is directed by Shivam Nair and also stars Anupam Kher, Prithviraj Sukumaran, Danny Denzongpa and Manoj Bajpayee.
Coming back to Naam Shabana’s box-office collection, as mentioned by Taran Adarsh, Sundayis crucial and will determine a large part of the film’s fate.
