Kabir Singh has been having a blast at the box office as the Shahid Kapoor-starrer has already been labelled as one of the biggest Bollywood hits of the year. Now on its second weekend, the flick has amassed a total of approximately 179 crores nett. According to a report by Box Office India, viewership of Kabir Singh on Sunday was affected by the England v. India match during the ICC World Cup. In spite of this influence by the match, the film still achieved a “decent growth” of just below 10 percent. Reportedly, the growth could have been somewhere between 30-32 percent if it weren’t for the match that day.
With that in mind, the film’s box office performance is still outstanding. It does remain to be seen, however, how Kabir Singh will continue to fare as more competition hit the big screens in the following weeks. As per a previous article by Box Office India, the film may in fact become the highest grossing film of the year in a few circles. “In some circuits the film is going to become the highest grossing film of 2019 in just two weeks. The footfalls of this film are huge and are sure to be more than Avengers - Endgame which grossed 367 crore nett but on very ATP (Average Ticket Price),” states the article.
According to Box Office India’s latest report, the current business line-up of Kabir Singh’s box office revenue is as follows:
Week One - 1,33,13,00,000
Friday - 11,75,00,000 apprx
Saturday - 16,25,00,000 apprx
Sunday - 17,75,00,000 apprx
Second Weekend - 45,75,00,000 apprx
