Kabir Singh Box Office Day 19: It slowed down on Tuesday due to the India-New Zealand cricket match. It is a different mater though that the match couldn’t finish due to rain but audiences didn’t really turn up in theatres.
Kabir Singh collected 3.20 crores more that has resulted in overall numbers standing at 243.17 crores. It will now cross the lifetime of Uri: The Surgical Strike today, something that had earlier seemed possible for yesterday itself.
The film would be impacted again today as the cricket match would be continued. Still, in the bigger scheme of things that shouldn’t make much of a difference as both films have succeeded in a good way already and whatever more that’s coming is a bonus number.
Shahid, who has spent 16 years in the industry, thanked his fans for their love, with an Instagram post in which he broke down the character.
He wrote: “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 and 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.”
Shahid feels Indian cinema and the audience have come a long way.
Kabir Singh, directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, also features Kiara Advani in a pivotal role.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
