The film continues to set the cash registers ringing. After successfully making it to the 200-crore club, Kabir Singh is now slowly inching towards Rs 250 crore.
The film reached the Rs 50 crore benchmark on day 3 and Rs 100 crore on day 5. And now, its collection stands at a whopping amount of Rs 235.72 crore in India. According to Box Office India, Kabir Singh has recorded the fifth highest third weekend of all time leaving behind Bahubali: The Conclusion, Dangal, PK and Uri: The Surgical Strike.

Commenting on the criticisms, the film’s director Sandeep Reddy Vanga described the film critics as ‘pseudo’ in his recent interview. “When you question people’s belief system, they get angry. I think that’s what happened. It is not even a healthy criticism. It’s very pseudo,” he said while speaking with Anupama Chopra.
“When you are deeply in love, deeply connected with the woman, there is a lot of honesty in it. If you don’t have that physical demonstration, if you don’t have the liberty of slapping each other, then I don’t see anything there,” he added.
Starring Kiara Advani as the female lead, the film deals with the story of a surgeon who struggles with his anger issues and goes through heartbreak when his girlfriend is forced to marry another man.Read More
