The good run continued for Kabir Singh as the film scored superbly on Sunday as well. If Friday and Saturday were good, Sunday was even better as collections turned out to be really huge. The film collected Rs. 27.91 crores more and with this the eventful opening weekend has come to a close.
The Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starrer has collected Rs. 70.83 crores so far which is an excellent number for a medium budget film like this. A good chunk of investment has already been recovered through satellite, digital and music rights, and still theatrical numbers are turning out to be huge enough to ensure that a Superhit verdict is definitely on the cards.
While the makers could well be celebrating already, it has to be seen how much further the film goes from here. Even a 50% fall on Monday when compared to the Friday collections would ensure that at least Rs.10 crores would come in. Normal trending from that point on would ensure that Rs.100 crores would be in reach before the weekdays are through.
There are only two Hindi releases in 2019 that have crossed the Rs.100 crore mark in the first week [Bharat and Kesari], and Kabir Singh could well be joining the elite group. This one has truly emerged as one of the biggest and most pleasant surprise success stories of 2019.
