Shahid Kapoor’s and Kiara Advani’s film Kabir Singh is not looking to slow down its business at the box office any time soon. The film has already become the highest grosser of Shahid’s 15 years-long Bollywood career. Even though there have been several controversies regarding the film’s misogynistic and violent behaviour the film has remained strong and entered its fourth week at a stupendous pace.
The film has already crossed Rs 250 crore milestone on Day 22 and now the total box office collection stands as Rs 252.14 crore. It has already become the top earner of the year, surpassing Vicky Kauhsla’s URI: The Surgical Strike and Salman Khan’s Bharat. It has emerged as the 10th highest grossing Hindi film ever.

Kabir Singh is the Hindi remake of Telugu hit Arjun Reddy and is directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga who also directed the original film. The film follows a brilliant surgeon who turns to a life of drugs and alcohol after being dumped by his girlfriend. The film has received flak for normalizing violence against women but that has not made any difference to the film’s collections. Vanga also received a lot of backlash for his explosive interview where he expressed really regressive views on love and relationships.
