Kabir Singh is taking the Bollywood industry and the whole of India by storm. The movie entered the Rs 100 crore club on Tuesday, that is within 5 days of its release. Shahid Kapoor's performance is being called as his career-best one and we couldn't agree more. Kabir Singh is just another feather in the cap of the actor who's career is already full of stellar performances. Be it with Haider, or Tommy Singh or his usual romantic hero avatar, the guy always gives his best shot. Having said that, Shahid's Kabir Singh with the collections of Rs 104.90 crore, has become the second fastest film to enter the Rs 100 crore club. You heard it, Kabir Singh has grabbed the second spot to become the film to rake in the fastest Rs 100 crore at the box office.
Kabir Singh released at the theatres on June 21 and since then, it has been unstoppable at the box office. The numbers are going steady even on weekdays. And by the looks of it, we are sure that it will earn Rs 150 crore very soon. For now, the film has beat Akshay Kumar and Parineeti Chopra starrer-Kesari to become the second fastest film to earn Rs 100 crore. It has taken a total of 5 days to reach that mark despite having the lowest screen count. Kabir Singh beat biggies like Kesari, Gully Boy and Total Dhamaal. The screen count of the the film was 3123 whereas for Kesari it was 3600 and it took 7 days for the film to reach Rs 100 crore. Gully Boy was released in 3350 screens across India and raked in Rs 100 crore in 8 days while Total Dhamaal opened in 3700 screens and took 9 days to earn Rs 100 crore. Given the fact that, Kesari, Gully Boy and Total Dhamaal had more screens, Kabir Singh has crushed all of them to grab the second spot. The first spot is being held by Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif's Bharat which entered the Rs 100 crore club in just 4 days. Have a look at trade expert Taran Adarsh's tweet here:
It is a well-known fact by now, that the film is a remake of Telugu hit Arjun Reddy which starred Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Panday. The film is helmed by Sandeep Vanga Reddy who has also helmed the Telugu version.
Meanwhile, Shahid has not yet announced his next projects but is said to star in another remake of Telugu hit Jersey which starred Nani in the lead role. Apparently, it is reported that Karan Johar has bagged the rights of the film and is planning to rope in Shahid Kapoor after seeing his performance in Kabir Singh. However, there hasn't been an official announcement as of yet.
