In the first week of its release, the film has earned Rs 146.63 crore and is expected to cross the Rs 150 crore mark on 29 June (Saturday).

Kabir Singh minted Rs 15.91 crore on Thursday and Rs 12.21 crore on Friday. The film has also been performing well during weekdays.

A remake of the Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy, starring Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey, Kabir Singh has recorded the best second Friday earnings compared to past releases of this year.

 

On the first day of its release, the film raked in Rs 20.21 crore, making it the biggest opener in Kapoor's career so far. Trade analysts have called it the "best trending film of 2019".

However, Kabir Singh has received mostly negative reviews for promoting misogyny and normalising violence against women. Recently, a Mumbai-based doctor had also raised objection against the the film for its portrayal of doctors in the film. He had written to Maharashtra Health Minister Eknath Shinde, stating that the film sends a "wrong message" about the medical profession.
