Shahid Kapoor’s Kabir Singh has taken the country by storm, raking in a mighty 206.48 crores, all within 13 days of its nationwide release.
The floods, cricket fever and the fact that the film released on a non-holiday weekend didn’t stop it from crossing the coveted 200 crore mark in less than two weeks.
Shahid Kapoor celebrates the biggest hit of his career and 2019’s biggest blockbuster. The numbers so far have been phenomenal and going by the momentum the film is looking at having a dream run in the next 2-3 weeks.
It’s been a while since a film has made this big an impact with audiences, critics and the industry raving about Shahid’s powerhouse performance.
As the film hits a double century, the actor penned a special note for his fans and audiences who showered the film with so much love.
Says Shahid Kapoor, “Your love is so overwhelming words will always fall short. Thank you for understanding him forgiving him and loving him with all your heart. We all fall apart. And we all must strive to rise from our faults. To be better. To be wiser. To be kinder. He is flawed. So are we all. You didn’t judge him you experienced him. You understood him. I have never ever felt so thankful. The most flawed character I have ever played. Has become my most loved. Indeed the Indian cinema and the audience has come a long way. More power to brave choices. More power to you all for your maturity and humanness. You have given me wings to fly. To not only be burdened by the need to be loved to be a star but to have the courage to be hated in equal measure to be an actor. Here’s to cinema mirroring life. To protagonists who don’t have to be restricted by their goodness and can be human and imperfect. There is perfection in imperfection and that is the beauty and the challenge of this human life. Thank you. Again and again. You all are the heroes of this story.”
