Kabir Singh box office collection day 9: Shahid Kapoor’s film rakes in Rs 17.10 crore on second Saturday

Kabir Singh is a rage. Seriously, nothing else can explain the tremendous success of the film in the second week. Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani’s film has taken the box-office by storm. Kabir Singh has made Rs 17.10 crore on the second Saturday. It is a rise by five crores from Friday, which was Rs 12 crore and above. Kabir Singh is the remake of Arjun Reddy, the blockbuster film by Sandeep Reddy Vanga. The filmmaker has also directed the Hindi remake. In the film, Shahid Kapoor plays Kabir, a brilliant but hot-headed passionate medical student who falls for Preeti Sikka. After facing dejection from her, he takes the path of self-destruction. People are loving the performances, music and chemistry between the lead pair. It is one of the top five grossing films of 2019 and looks all set to overtake Bharat and Uri. It should cross the Rs 175 crore mark today.

Arjun Reddy star Vijay Deverakonda sent a letter of appreciation and bouquet to Kiara Advani which she posted on Insta. BollywoodLife’s critic, Tushar P Joshi wrote, “In the case of Kabir Singh, Shahid delivers one of his career’s finest performances. His rage and anger isn t just on the surface but it s visceral and a part of the air he breathes. To show that complexity isn t easy, so Shahid digs deep and becomes the madness that is Kabir. He is deep and intense yet light and breezy when needed. There is a natural flair and charm that he puts to use full throttle. Kiara s last scene with him is a revelation. She has to underplay Preeti for most of the film and she does full justice to her character. But her emotional outburst in the climax showcases her immense versatility.” Stay tuned to BL for more scoops and updates!
