Bollywood actors Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani's 'Kabir Singh' is creating a storm at the box office. After earning Rs 70.83 crores in the opening weekend, the film has passed the Monday test with flying colours. As per estimates, it has earned a total of 17 crores, thus taking the total collection to Rs 82.83 crores. The film which released in 3123 screens in India is going strong in single screens as well as multiplexes. Directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, the film is a remake of Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy.
Trade analyst and film critic took to social media to announce that the film is 'rewriting the rules of the game' and that it is trending that all the other big films of the year.
What’s noteworthy about the collections have been the fact that the movie has not been unanimously acclaimed by the critics. Moreover, Shahid’s character Kabir’s ‘toxic masculinity’ has been drawing flak not just from a section of the netizens but also celebrities like Sona Mohapatra.
Meanwhile, it has also beat Salman Khan's 'Bharat' box office numbers in just three days. 'Bharat' proved to be both Salman's biggest Eid opener as well as his highest ever opener ever by raking in Rs 42.30 crore on its first day. As per media reports, his last two Eid releases, 'Tubelight' and 'Race 3' had a lackluster start at the box office. Adarsh had earlier shared that the film's opening day moolah has surpassed that of Salman's hit films including 'Tiger Zinda Hai' (Rs 34.10 crore), 'Sultan' (Rs 36.54 crore) and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (Rs 40.35 crore).
‘Kabir Singh’ is the remake of this movie’s director Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s ‘Arjun Reddy’ that starred Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey. The Hindi adaptation, produced by T-Series Bhushan Kumar, Murad Khetani and Ashwin Varde, is definitely following its Telugu counterpart, not only in hype, but also in the success.
