Sandeep Reddy Vanga's Hindi directorial debut Kabir Singh is having an unbelievable run at the Indian box office since day 1. The film starring Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani has been in the news for the wrong reasons lately, however, that seems to have helped in boosting the film's collection further. We say so because after leaving behind Salman Khan's Bharat in the box office race, the romantic drama has now beaten the lifetime business of Kick and Chennai Express. Yes, you heard that right. In fact, Kabir Singh is faring so well that it will soon become the highest grossing film of 2019, beating Vicky Kaushal's Uri - The Surgical Strike.

It has already become the highest grossing Indian film of the year in Australia, leaving behind Gully Boy, Uri, Bharat, Kalank and Total Dhamaal. That's not all! Kabir Singh is also set to surpass the A$ 1 million mark at the Australian box office soon. In that case, we think its time for team Kabir Singh to celebrate once again.
