There’s no stopping Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starrer Kabir Singh. The film, which will complete a month of theatre run in the next few days, has been basking in success and how. While the film received mixed reviews and created a stir on social media for its sexist content, it has crossed Rs 250 Crore and has now beaten the 4th-week record of Aamir Khan and Ranbir Kapoor’s films.
Kabir Singh which emerged as the highest grosser of 2019 till date and has surpassed the 4th-week box-office collection of Sanju and Dangal. Yes, you heard that right! Till now Sanju and Dangal, have been the biggest box-office success in its 4th-week but with Kabir Singh entering its 5th week, it has crossed the BO collections of Aamir & Ranbir. Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#KabirSingh is steady... [Week 4] Fri 2.54 cr, Sat 3.75 cr, Sun 4.05 cr, Mon 1.65 cr. Total: ₹ 261.59 cr. India biz.”

Thanking his fans for the amazing collections of Kabir
Singh, Shahid Kapoor had taken to social media a few days back and penned a
heartfelt note. His caption read, “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. 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. Indeed Indian cinema and the audience has come a long way. More
power to brave choices. More power to you all for your maturity and humanness.
You have given me wings to fly. To not only be burdened by the need to be loved
to be a star but to have the courage to be hated in equal measure to be an
actor. Here’s to cinema mirroring life. To protagonists, who don’t have to be
restricted by their goodness and can be human and imperfect. There is
perfection in imperfection and that is the beauty and the challenge of this
human life. Thank you. Again and again. You all are the heroes of this story.”
