After playing in theatres for three weeks, Kabir Singh has collected 249.60 crores already at the box office. It would easily have been at least 3 crores more if not for the cricket match which got split between two days. Nonetheless, that gap should get covered in days to come because the film is already very well set and now it is about gaining as much bonus numbers as it can.
On Thursday, the collections jumped again as it was an open day with no cricket match featuring India. The collections were as high as 3.32 crores which pretty much indicates that the coming weekend would be again in the range of 10 crores. All Time Blockbuster.
Collections of Article 15 increased as well due to the same reason and 1.50 crores* came in. The film currently stands at 52.33 crores* and before the third week is through, it would have comfortably gone past the 60 crores mark.
While the numbers are good so far, one doesn’t foresee the overall collections to still surpass Andhadhun. There is Super 30 this week which would also eat up the screens and shows, even as Article 15 is already battling challenges from Kabir Singh. Still, the fact that it has already come this far is an achievement, as well as the film, is a clean Hit.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
