Shahid Kapoor's new film Kabir Singh will hit the theatres tomorrow. The drama-film is based on the Telugu hit 'Arjun Reddy' which was also directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga. Arjun Reddy was a huge hit at the box office, so the expectations are high from Kabir Singh too. The film is likely to open strong at the box office. According to industry experts, it could be Shahid Kapoor's biggest opener after Shaandaar which had collected Rs 13.10 crore.
The film which also stars Kiara Advani is expected to earn between Rs 12-15 crore on the opening day at the box office, as per reports.
Meanwhile, reactions have started to pour in on social media after the film was screened in the Middle East. Most of the people who have watched the film have praised Shahid Kapoor's work. Some have called it his best performance ever.
