Kabir Singh pretty much arrived like a storm and blew away practically everything that came its way, what with 70.83 crores coming in its opening weekend. One would have expected that it could well be over and out moment for Bharat which was anyways not quite trending well. In that aspect, the Salman Khan starrer still managed to do somewhat fairly okay. It hung on at certain centers and accumulated 3.75 crores* more.
Whatever is coming for the film now is an added bonus as those who were interested to watch the Ali Abbas Zafar directorial affair have already done that. The numbers which are trickling in is just allowing the film to cover a bit more distance and the interest is primarily academic.
With 209.36 crores* in its kitty so far, the film has gone past the lifetime numbers of the Salman Khan starrer Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (207.40 crores) by tomorrow. That would be the last of the records for the film and post that it may just about hang on for a week or two before Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30 arrives on 12th July.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
