The film has received mostly negative reviews for promoting misogyny and normalising violence against women. However, trade analysts add that Kabir Singh seems to be popular the most among the youth.

It has now joined the top five  films of 2019 to have had an exceptional opening day. Unlike Bharat, Kalank, Kesari and Gully Boy, only Kabir Singh has had a traditional Friday release.

Kabir Singh 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, Adil Hussain and Arjan Bajwa in supporting roles.

The film is a Hindi remake of the Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy with Vijay Deverakonda in the titular role and Shalini Pandey as the female lead. Sandeep Vanga Reddy has written and directed both the original and its remake.

Kapoor also shares his reaction to the audience's response.
