Kabir Singh has 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. 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.

The film has received mostly negative reviews for promoting misogyny and normalising violence against women.

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 Hindi version of the Telugu blockbuster has been also been helmed by Sandeep Vanga Reddy.

Recently, a Mumbai-based doctor had objected against the 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.
