Airlift Box Office Prediction:

Airlift is an upcoming thriller film directed by Raja Krishna Menon. The film stars Akshay Kumar and Nimrat Kaur in the lead roles. It is being produced by T-Series and Nikhal Advani. Airlift is scheduled to release on 22 January 2016.

It is the final part of prediction in which the opening day and weekend will also be updated.

Airlift Box Office Analysis

Akshay Kumar has undoubtedly the biggest fan following in India after Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan. He just needs a proper entertaining film which has universal appeal.

2015 has proved to be an average year for Akshay Kumar. As all of his releases failed to enter into 100 crore club. Though Gabbar Is Back and Singh Is Bling turned out to be hits.

Anyway the teaser of the film has received terrific response from audience. The music is also good and will grow in coming days.

There is also a patriotic angle in this film and if it worked well, then it can do wonders at the box office. 100 crore will not be an issue then.

The film is mainly targeted at multiplexes. Akshay Kumar’s core fan following is in single screens and small centers. It will be interesting to see if Airlift will cater to them. Music can help in this regard. Baby did very well in multiplexes but it did not have the support of single screens so it remained average.

Another problem is that it will clash with Kya Kool Hain Hum 3. That film has generated good buzz after the release of trailer and will affect Airlift at single screens.

What’s Hot:

♦ Solid Promos
♦ Good Music
♦ Marketing
♦ Republic Day Holiday


What’s Not:

♦ KKHH 3 Clash
♦ Akshay’s 5th Release in Last 12 Months
♦ Class Appeal


Airlift Box Office Prediction:

The film will have a good opening in northern parts of India especially in Delhi and Punjab. But it can suffer from clash especially at single screens. We expect the film to open at around 50% on Friday and then grow with word of mouth.

Due to the smart economics of T-Series, the film is very much in the safe zone. If the patriotism factor clicks with the audience, then it can went on to become a huge hit.

Airlift Box Office Collection Prediction:

Opening Day: 10.1 Crore


If very good (Excellent word of mouth)

Weekend: 38+ Cr
Lifetime: 100+ Cr
Verdict: Super Hit


If Mixed (Average)

Weekend: 32 Cr
Lifetime: 70-90 Cr
Verdict: Hit


If Bad (Worst Case)

Weekend: <26 Cr
Lifetime: <60 Cr
Verdict: Flop/Average

  1. comedy ???
    it is drama action biography thriller
    are you feeling shame? it’s all about a legend not about comedy

  2. me agree with Bollyarena Box Office Predication of Airlift,90 cr even for the film will be like 500 cr to any aksha movie,because he is in rejected list now,

    • By the way he. Has 3 movie in top 10 of 2014 and 11 th is also his movie I belive after Salman he is greatest n even then him in some terms

  3. zamil stop showing hour ganwarpanti writing again and again i support bollyarena
    and please write clearly what fo you mean by rejected list
    dumb person

  4. Airlift for me: Opening day 10-12 2nd day 13 3rd day 14-16 opening weekend 38+ maybe arround 40, Monday 7 (with good wom othevise 5-6) Tuesday (Big Holiday) 13-14 (Last year baby 14+) Wensday 6,50 Thursday 5,50 1st week arround 70-75 crore, Friday will hold on 3,50 Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 after 10 day arround 85 crore, 2nd monday 2 Tuesday 2 Wendy 1,70 Thursday 1,50 weekdays arround 7 crore after 2 week 90+ lifetime 100+
    EXCELLET WOM 110-120
    GOOD WOM 100+
    AVERAGE 70-75

  5. Looking its genre & Clash factor I’m thinking First day (normal working day) will be 8.5Cr.
    Then obviously it will grow hugely on Saturday & Sunday with strong WOM.

  6. Its sure will have a double digit opening day ..10-12cr and if word of mouth positive thwn there is no limit as airlift has a patriotic theme.

  7. I think 2015 was a great year for akahy kumar three succeessfulmoviez(baby above average,SIB HIT,GIB HIT)
    And average film brothers. Do you think I’M RIGHT BOLYARENA

  8. According to buzz and clash factor it can open around 10 cr – Akshay is very good actor doing different kind of genre in one year which is not easy

  9. Airlift is a classic movie and akshay kumar is a ACTOR not ENTERTAINER like khans. And now a days akki is doing class movies. And he did 4-5 movies per year with the ratio of 90% hits which is not a easy task for any actor. So keep silent and saw the akki’s storm in cinemahalls.

  10. see my page on the forums with my predictions for all the year releases – did predict wazir to do 40 crores and looks like it coming true!

  11. prakhar Advance booking is stardet.. is looking good so far.. Mumbai and Pune metros is going very well..
    I think the movie will cross the 10 crore mark easily

  12. Thanks Jas
    I hope above 12 crore opening as advance booking trend is good. So only a prediction from an akkian-
    week 1- 12
    15 18.5 9.5 17 8.5 8
    week 2- 4.5 6 7 4 3.8 3.5 3.2
    week 3- 1.5 2 3 1.2 1 0.8 0.6
    rest week – 2
    total to around 133-135 crore

  13. Singh is Bling hit how BollyArena??
    Budget (P&A)-92cr
    Its a flop or average.
    Yes agry Baby and GIB is Super hit by its content.

    • sing is bling distribution rights 40 cr….film recover share 46+ cr so hit…cause it is a single screen movie specially so the share is this high with collection of only 89+ cr..but baby is multiplex movie so its share is 38 cr only after collect 96 cr …
