Shahid Kapoor & Kiara Advani’s riotous Kabir Singh has indeed surpassed all expectations, breaking not just one or two but some marvelous records at the box office. While we couldn’t get enough of the ones in the Indian market, the Sandeep Reddy Vanga directorial has reached another milestone as it has become the highest-earning Bollywood grosser of 2019 in Australia, and has left behind some biggies like Salman Khan’s Bharat, Ranveer Singh’s Gully Boy amongst others!
As per the latest numbers following in via Comescore, Kabir Singh till yesterday has made collections of A$1.1 million in the Australian market. Not only has it become the only movie to cross the A$1 million mark in 2019 till now, it has done the same by surpassing major movies like Gully Boy (A$944k), Vicky Kaushal’s Uri: The Surgical Strike (A$887k), Bharat (A$852k) and Varun Dhawan’s Kalank (A$834k).
We can’t believe that the movie is still continuing its glorious run even after completion of one month, but it will be interesting to see where it lands in its lifetime run.
Actress Kiara Advani went on a thanking spree on Sunday as her film “Kabir Singh” completed a month and her co-star Shahid Kapoor found her post nothing less than an “award-winning speech”. The film was released on June 21.
Kiara began her post by writing: “#1MonthOfKabirSingh Every time I have tried to put down my feelings on ‘Kabir Singh‘ I don’t know where to begin, this attempt will not do justice either, to how truly grateful I am, to my team, and the audience for making our film what it has become today.”
It was a year ago when she stepped into the shoes of Preeti — her character — whom she described as “shy, demure, and basically the complete opposite of me”.
“But I also saw her strength, conviction, her love and her passion and couldn’t help but feel for the love story that you all rooted for with me. Kabir, aka @shahidkapoor my co-star, confidant and friendly through this journey who completed and made this story so real and believable.
“Already missing your craziness mama, couldn’t have been luckier to work together on this special film.”
