All the hard work that Shahid Kapoor did for Kabir Singh has paid off. The latest release of Shasha is doing extremely well at the box office and has surpassed all the expectations fans and trade had from it.
It’s just been 6 days of the film’s release and it’s close to touching 125 crores mark. The interesting fact is that the 6 days total business of Kabir Singh is more than the accumulated total of the lifetime business of Shahid’s last 3 films. Yes, not kidding!
Shahid Kapoor’s last 3 films as a solo lead were Batti Gul Meter Chalu (2018), Rangoon (2017) & Udta Punjab (2016). The 3 films did a business of 37.26 crores, 23 crores and 59.60 crores which makes a total of 119.86 crores and the business of Kabir Singh is 120.81 crores so far which is around 1 crore more already.
The film will soon touch the 150 crores mark and is currently in the race for 200 crores club.
Kabir Singh is the official Hindi remake of Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy. Recently Ishaan Khatter posted an appreciation post for Shahid Kapoor on Instagram and wrote, “As happy as can be for my big brother today who’s always been a shining example of a human being for me. Not a doubt in the world that you deserve the smashing success but it continues to baffle me how you were able to play one of the most complex, lost and damaged characters with such perfection while returning home to being the most centred, loving and responsible family man I know. Thank you for showing me what it means to be a responsible son, father, husband and brother always AND for knocking me out with your performance in and as #KabirSingh ?You are ???”
The film hit the cinemas on June 21, 2019.
