Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani's Kabir Singh is unstoppable. The film has made quite a mark at the box office and refuses to settle down. Kabir Singh has emerged as the highest-grossing film of 2019 and has surpassed Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar's films Bharat and Kesari respectively. The drama-action film is inching closer towards the Rs 250 crore mark. 

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh spoke about it and wrote: "#KabirSingh emerges the highest grossing #Hindi film of 2019... Inches closer to ₹ 250 cr mark... Fri 5.40 cr, Sat 7.51 cr, Sun 9.61 cr, Mon 4.25 cr, Tue 3.20 cr, Wed 3.11 cr. Total: ₹ 246.28 cr. India biz. ALL TIME BLOCKBUSTER (sic)"

Kabir Singh is Shahid Kapoor's solo highest opener of his career. The Sandeep Reddy Vanga film entered the Rs 200 crore club in just 13 days of its run on the domestic box office. The film achieved this feat quicker than Salman Khan's Bharat (day 14) and Vicky Kaushal-starrer Uri: The Surgical Strike (day 28).

Last week, Shahid Kapoor dedicated a thank you note to his fans for loving the film. He wrote, "Your love is so overwhelming words will always fall short. Thank you for understanding him forgiving him and loving him with all your heart. We all fall apart. And we all must strive to rise from our faults. To be better. To be wiser. To be kinder. He is flawed. So are we all. You didn’t judge him you experienced him. You understood him. I have never ever felt so thankful. The most flawed character I have ever played. Has become my most loved. Indeed indian cinema and the audience has come a long way. More power to brave choices. More power to you all for your maturity and humanness. You have given me wings to fly. To not only be burdened by the need to be loved to be a star but to have the courage to be hated in equal measure to be an actor. Here’s to cinema mirroring life. To protagonists who don’t have to be restricted by their goodness and can be human and imperfect. There is perfection in imperfection and that is the beauty and the challenge of this human life. Thank you. Again and again. You all are the heroes of this story."
