The stage is set as the latest flick from Shahid Kapoor will release tomorrow to treat his die-hard fans with Kabir Singh. Let us see if it can cross the opening day figure of Shaandaar.
Based on Telugu film, Arjun Reddy, Shahid Kapoor’s Kabir Singh has already set the eye-ball rolling with its first teaser, enigmatic trailer and super-hit songs like Tujhe Kitna Chahne Lage and Bekhayali, which had quite popular.
Directed by Sandeep Vanga, the advance booking report for Kabir Singh is gathering steam and can be compared to John Abraham starrer Satyameva Jayate but will fall short. Shahid Kapoor had a decent 2018 where multi-starrer Padmaavat turned out to be a blockbuster while Batti Gul Meter Chalu underperformed at the box office as a solo hero. Kabir Singh is a crucial film for Shahid Kapoor as he has to still prove that he can pull of a film on his shoulder. He has scored his biggest opening with Vikas Bahl directed Shaandaar which earned a massive Rs 13.10 crores when it was released in 2015. However, owing to a solid advance booking which started on Sunday, we predict Kabir Singh to mint somewhere between Rs 13-14 crores on its first day and can become the highest opening film of Shahid Kapoor.
The romantic-drama also stars Kiara Advani and is being produced by Bhushan Kumar.
