Kabir SinghActor Shahid Kapoor has registered his career's biggest opening with "Kabir Singh", which has crossed the Rs 50 Crore milestone since its release last Friday. This comes after earning Rs 20.21 crore on its first day, making it the biggest opener of Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani's career.
According to Taran Adarsh, the movie released across 3,123 screens in India. While some find it misogynistic in its approach, others find it as one of Shahid’s best performances onscreen.
Kabir Singh is a remake of Telugu film Arjun Reddy, directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga. It has become one of the few box office earners in India so far this year, apart from being a good non-holiday performer.
The original film stars Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey. Kabir Singh narrates the story of Kabir (Shahid), a young final year medical student who falls in love with Preeti (Kiara), his junior in college. Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Murad Khetani, Krishan Kumar and Ashwin Varde, the film is a T-Series and Cine1 Studios presentation.
