Kabir Singh Box Office Collection: Shahid Kapoor's Kabir Singh has earned a place among highest grossing films of this year. Kabir Singh, which is being shown across over 2,000 screens even after two weeks of release, is well on its way to touch the Rs 250-crore mark. Kabir Singh earned Rs 134.78 crore in its first week and Rs 78 crore in the second, taking its total collection to Rs 213.20 crore on Friday. It has also surpassed the lifetime collection of Salman Khan's Bharat to become the second highest grosser of 2019.

Film business experts believe if the film continues to perform well, it could easily emerge as the highest grossing film of 2019 by dethroning Vicky Kaushal's Uri: The Surgical Strike. Interestingly, Kabir Singh is Shahid Kapoor's first film to score a double century at the box office. The film has shown no signs of fatigue in its second week at the box office, and the makers are hoping the trend will continue and the film will join the coveted Rs 300-crore club. Kabir Singh earned whopping Rs 78.78 crore in Week 2, collecting over Rs 29 crore on weekend only.

Kabir Singh is the fourth biggest Hindi opener at the box office this year. The film, however, received mixed reviews and was criticised for glorifying violence in the name of love and glamorising misogyny.

Drama-film Kabir Singh is directed by Arjun Reddy director Sandeep Reddy Vanga and produced by Bhushan Kumar, Murad Khetani, Krishan Kumar and Ashwin Varde. Vanga's Telugu directorial Arjun Reddy was also a huge hit at the domestic box office. In Kabir Singh, Shahid Kapoor has played the role of the title character Kabir Singh, Kiara Advani is featured as Preeti, Suresh Oberoi will be playing the role of Shahid's father (Rajdheer Singh) and Adil Hussain as the dean of the college.
