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. It also crossed the extended first week earnings of Akshay Kumar's period drama Kesari, Ranveer Singh-fronted musical drama Gully Boy, and Ajay Devgn's comedy Total Dhamaal within six days.
Kabir Singh is written and directed by Sandeep Vanga Reddy. It follows a young, successful surgeon, who turns to a life of drugs and alcohol after his college sweetheart marries another man. The film also stars Kamini Kaushal, Suresh Oberoi, Arjan Bajwa and Adil Hussain.
The film brought to the fore an impassioned debate about the gross misogyny and patriarchy that the film unabashedly celebrates and the inappropriateness of such problematic narratives. Kabir Singh has also received flak for 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.
