Here are records that Kabir Singh has broken on the Box Office.
1: Biggest solo hit of Shahid's career
Shahid Kapoor may have other big movies like Padmaavat on his name, but Kabir Singh is his biggest solo hit till date.
2. Third biggest opener of the year
The film collected Rs 70.83 crore in its opening weekend. While Avengers: Endgame was the winner by a big margin, Salman Khan's Bharat stood in the second position. However, Kabir Singh managed this feat despite being released on a non-holiday weekend, with normal ticket pricing, an 'A' certificate from the CBFC, during the ICC World Cup and despite scathing reviews from critics.
3. Third highest Hindi grosser of 2019
The film is behind only Salman Khan's Bharat (Rs 210 crore) and Vicky Kaushal's Uri (Rs 245 crore). Taran expects the film to cross the lifetime business of Uri soon.
4. Second fastest Hindi movie to cross Rs 100 crore mark in 2019
Offering a comparison of how quickly Kabir Singh took to cross the Rs 100 crore mark, Taran wrote that Kabir Singh accomplished the feat faster than Akshay Kumar's Kesari (7 days), Ranveer Singh's Gully Boy (8 days) and the ensemble comedy Total Dhamaal (9 days). Only one movie crossed the mark quicker: Salman Khan's Bharat, in four days, but in over 1000 more theatres than Kabir Singh.
5. Biggest Sunday collections of 2019 for Hindi movie
After becoming the top opener for Shahid and top non-holiday opening film of 2019, with Rs 20 crore, the movie broke the record for the biggest Sunday numbers of the year. Toppling Bharat by Rs 2 crore, Kabir Singh made close to Rs 28 crore.
Directed by Sandeep Reddy, the film is a remake of Telugu original Arjun Reddy. The film also stars Kiara Advani as the female lead.
