Shahid Kapoor’s Kabir Singh BEATS Tiger Zinda Hai and Dhoom 3 at the box office – here’s how

Despite new releases like Article 15 and Annabelle Comes Home, Shahid Kapoor’s Kabir Singh continued its phenomenal run at the box office. By raking in Rs 12.21 crore yesterday, it emerged as the highest second Friday grosser of the year beating many biggies like Bharat, Uri: Manikarnika and Gully Boy. And apart from that, it has turned out to be the 7th highest second Friday grosser of all-time after Bahubali – The Conclusion, Dangal, PK, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Sanju and Bajirao Mastani. It has beaten blockbusters like Tiger Zinda Hai (Rs 11.56 crore) and Dhoom 3 (Rs 11 crore) to achieve this milestone at the ticket windows.

Earlier, Shahid revealed how playing Kabir Singh was extremely challenging for him. “Kabir Singh has been an extremely challenging film for me emotionally and physically. Since I had three distinct looks in the film, I had to transform myself to quite an extent. I had to smoke cigarettes and grow my beard. However, since my character demanded it, I did not think twice before doing what my director wanted me to do. I like doing roles that challenge me,” he said.

Actor Shahid Kapoor is seen as Dr Kabir Rajdheer Singh in the film, which is a remake of the popular Telugu movie Arjun Reddy that originally starred Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey. Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Murad Khetani, Krishan Kumar and Ashwin Varde, the film was released on June 21. The remake is written and directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga.
