According to trade analyst and movie critic Taran Adarsh,  Kabir Singh is gradually eyeing a Rs 200 crore haul, and may also challenge box office numbers of Vicky Kaushal-starrer Uri: The Surgical Strike, which is the highest grossing film of 2019 till now.

Directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga of Telugu film  'Arjun Reddy' fame, Kabir Singh is the third take on the story, which was also remade in Tamil as 'Adithya Varma'.

However, despite Kabir Singh's success at the box office, the film's all three versions have drawn criticism for their depiction of toxic misogyny as the central character, a surgeon, descends into self-destruction and alcoholism following a heartbreak.

Censor board member Vani Tripathi Tikoo has blasted Kabir Singh's team for glorifying violence against women, labeling the film as 'terribly misogynistic'.

Previously, singer Sona Mohapatra had criticised the film.
