Kabir Singh fever has gripped the entire nation and now. Despite several hurdles in its way, Kabir Singh has set the box office on fire and has emerged Shahid Kapoor’s highest solo grosser in just 3 days. After an exceptional start on Friday, Kabir Singh went from strength to strength as the weekend progressed. The film remained unaffected by the ‘Adult Only’ certificate which it got, the ongoing Cricket World Cup 2019 and the toxic reviews by some of the critics.
Kabir Singh had an excellent start at the ticket windows with Rs. 20.21 crore coming in on Friday. It then recorded a huge jump on Saturday and Sunday as it raked in Rs. 22.71 crore and Rs. 27.91 crore respectively. The 3-day total of Kabir Singh stands at Rs. 70.83 crore which is exceptional by all means and is a testimony to the unprecedented craze for the film amongst the youth. Also, the film has surpassed the lifetime collection of R Rajkumar which was Shahid’s highest grosser as a solo lead.
With such huge figures, Kabir Singh has also become the highest opening weekend grosser of 2019 in the category of non-holiday releases, surpassing Total Dhamaal. Overall, Kabir Singh stands second in the highest opening weekend grosser list of 2019, behind Salman Khan’s Eid release Bharat. The film is racing towards the Rs. 100 crore mark and should get there within the first week itself.
It is heartening to see so much love pouring in for Shahid as he is one of the most talented actors in Bollywood and yet somehow never got his due at the box office. Kabir Singh will certainly be a turning point in his career and we really hope his future projects too resonate with the masses.
Kabir Singh is a remake of Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy and has been directed by the same director – Sandeep Reddy Vanga. The film features Kiara Advani opposite Shahid.
