Amongst all the major records that Kabir Singh has scored on its opening day at the Box Office, here is one more. The film has taken the BIGGEST opening ever for an A certificate film in the history of Bollywood. This isn't all as it is the first ever love story to do so.

Others in the list are across varied genres, though the erotica-thriller-horror genre takes precedence with six out of ten films belonging to various permutations and combinations of this genre. Satyameva Jayate, Veere Di Wedding and Shoootout At Wadala are the only three films that have managed to find an audience without an element of erotica or horror, and now Kabir Singh has topped even that list.

Here is presenting Top-10 opening days for adults-only films:

Movie name - Day 1 box office collection

Kabir Singh – Rs 20.20 crores

Satyameva Jayate – Rs 20.52 crores

Grand Masti – Rs 12.50 crores

Veere Di Wedding – Rs 10.70 crores

Shootout at Wadala – Rs 10.10 crores

Raaz 3 – Rs 10.25 crores

Hate Story 3 – Rs 9.72 crores

The Dirty Picture – Rs 9.54 crores

Ragini MMS 2 – Rs 8.43 crores

Jism 2 - 7.46 crores

The good thing is that three amongst the top five of these films have released during last one year, which demonstrates how audiences are opening up to mature entertainment. It also has to do with the fact that there is good production values associated with these films, and the situations in the narrative aren't forced in order to cater to adults. Instead, it is all organic and that is what has made Veere Di Wedding, Satyameva Jayate and now Kabir Singh manage such good numbers right at the onset.

It would be good to see the trend continue as there is an audience for all kind of cinema and more the filmmakers experiment while keeping the entertainment quotient in more, better would be the outcome at the Box Office in time to come as well.
