Kabir Singh highest grosser: Biggest hit for Shahid, Kiara

The collections of Kabir Singh have beaten the competition from The Lion King, Spiderman: Far from Home, Super 30 and Judgementall Hai Kya

New Delhi/Mumbai: While film Kabir Singh has broken many records at the box office, the film proved to be the most successful film in the careers of Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani so far.

Kabir Singh was released on 21 June. Forty days later, the film is still casting a spell on the audience. It has made a total collection of more than Rs 275 crore. The overall collection of the film Kabir Singh has been Rs 277.07 crore.

The film has been receiving a good response at the theatres even 40 days after its release. This is remarkable, given that there are big Hollywood and Bollywood movies at the theatres that Kabir Singh is competing with even though it is running on fewer screens. The box office collections of Kabir Singh continue to set new records while the gross of other films released around the same time tapered off.

While from Bollywood, Kangana Ranaut’s movie Judgementall (sic) Hai Kya and Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30 are in the theatres, The Lion King and Spiderman: Far from Home from Bollywood threatened Kabir Singh‘s prospects but could not succeed in dethroning it from the position of audience’s most favourite film in the recent times.

Kabir Singh: Controversy and success

Kabir Singh is a Hindi-language romantic film written and directed by Sandeep Vanga. It is a remake of his Telugu film Arjun Reddy (2017). Jointly produced by Cine1 Studios and T-Series, the film stars Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani. It focuses on the title character, an alcoholic surgeon who goes on a self-destructive path after his girlfriend is forced to marry someone else.

The film’s principal photography began in October 2018 and ended in March 2019. The film was theatrically released in India on 21 June. It received mixed reviews, with criticism directed at it for “glamorising misogyny” and “toxic masculinity” (terms used in the reviews of Business Today and Hindustan Times), though Kapoor’s performance was praised.

At the box office, Kabir Singh has become Kapoor’s highest-grossing film as a sole male star. It has emerged as the highest-grossing Bollywood film of 2019. At the second, third, fourth and fifth positions are Uri: The Surgical Strike, Bharat, Gully Boy and Total Dhamaal.
