Kabir Singh is on a record-breaking spree. Shahid Kapoor brushes aside the debacle of his previous release, Batti Gul Meter Chalu, to deliver a smash hit with Kabir Singh. Like its original film, Arjun Reddy, which was a blockbuster in Telugu Cinema in 2017, Kabir Singh has been doing rocking business at the box office. Within three days, Kabir Singh has earned Rs 70.83 crore. This makes Kabir Singh Shahid Kapoor's highest grossing solo-lead starrer, beating R... Rajkumar, Udta Punjab and Haider in the process. Shahid Kapoor's highest grossing movie, though, remains Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat with Rs 302 crore.

Kabir Singh's box office success had another interesting facet to look at - despite being rated Adults Only, the movie has managed to draw in the crowds. However, Kabir Singh is yet to be the highest grossing Adult grosser, yet. 'Yet'... that's the key word here. With the audiences still going in the watch the film, we expect the movie to easily gross more than Rs 100 crore before the next weekend.
And in the process, Kabir Singh would have beaten these four movies to earn the tag of the highest grossing adult movie in Bollywood. Nakuul Mehta and Sona Mohapatra Get into a Twitter Argument over Shahid Kapoor’s Kabir Singh.
