Baba - Box Office Collection

Baba released to a mixed to mostly negative reception at the box office. The film had huge pre-release hype at the time and was sold for high distribution rates. Baba ended up failing to recover investments and was Rajini's first flop in Tamil since Valli which released in 1993.

Baba grossed 20 crores in Tamil Nadu becoming the 2nd highest grossing film in the state that year after Vikram's Gemini.

Baba was estimated to have grossed nearly 41 crores worldwide with 31.65 crores from India and USD$2M (9.71cr) from abroad. It was Kollywood's highest grosser worldwide in 2002.
