Release on June 21, the film yesterday completed one month in the theater. Thereafter, actress Kiara Advani, who played the role of Preeti in the film wrote a note of gratitude to the director and her co-stars after film's success. Kiara wrote, "Every time I have tried to put down my feelings on Kabir Singh I don't know where to begin, this attempt will not do justice either, to how truly grateful I am, to my team, and the audience for making our film what it has become today. A year ago I stepped into the shoes of Preeti, shy, demure, and basically the complete opposite of me. But I also saw her strength, conviction, her love and her passion and couldn't help but feel for the love story that you all rooted for with me- Shahid Kapoor my costar, confidant and friend through this journey who completed and made this story so real and believable. Sandeep Sir, the OG! His conviction to stay true to his story and make it so unapologetically, his passion for films, his craziness and honesty gave us the opportunity to play characters that were flawed, imperfect and so real that you can't stop yourself from feeling for them". Kiara further thanked film's producers and musician by saying, "Thank you for creating a soundtrack that became an anthem and the heartbeat of the film! ".
The film has become the biggest blockbuster of this year in India and is also Shahid Kapoor's biggest solo film till date with an earning of Rs 271 crore.
