Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starrer Kabir Singh is one of the few films who faced many challenges but surpassed them all. The movie released on non-holiday. Despite that, it managed to make a great opening for Shahid Kapoor and gave him the biggest opening film of his career. This happened despite the movie receiving an A-certificate, and the ticket prices not being hiked (since it released on non-holiday).

Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starrer Kabir Singhwhich released on Friday, June 21, did not receive a flowery welcome. The movie is being bashed for its mysogyny and glorified male ego. Shahid Kapoor, in fact, is being questioned for taking up such a role. More so, the movie released during World Cup 2019 matches, one of them being India vs Afghanistan. Despite all of this, Kabir Singh has managed to mint Rs. 70 crore and has become the biggest non-holiday opener of 2019, surpassing Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit starrer Total Dhamaal.

Confirming the same, trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, #KabirSingh surpasses *opening weekend* biz of #TotalDhamaal [62.40 cr / 3700 screens], thus emerging the biggest *non-holiday* opener of 2019... A remarkable feat, since #KabirSingh was released on 3123 screens. India biz.

"#KabirSingh is firing on all cylinders at the BO... Metros, mass belt, Tier-2, Tier-3 cities - #KabirSingh wave grips the nation... Emerges Shahid Kapoor’s highest grosser in 3 days [after #Padmaavat]... Fri 20.21 cr, Sat 22.71 cr, Sun 27.91 cr. Total: 70.83 cr. India biz," he added.

Here, read his tweets:

Kabir Singh, which happens to be the official remake of Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey starrer Arjun Reddy, has been directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga. The movie released at a time when Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif and Sunil Grover starrer Bharat's business was slowing down and Chris Hemsworth-Tessa Thompson's Men In Black: International and Taapsee Pannu's Game Over created some magic for a few days. Come June 28 and Ayushmann Khurrana's Article 15 would release in theatres, giving some competition to Kabir Singh. Made on a budget of Rs. 60 crore, it is now only time when Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani's Kabir Singh is declared a hit, unless the movie takes a huge dip over the weekdays.
