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.
Earlier, the film made history by earning Rs. 105 Crore in just 5 days. And how could Shahid miss this opportunity to announce this also? He took to his Instagram account to share this with all his fans:
The film made Rs. 20.21 Cr. on the first day of the release and Rs. 146.63 Cr. in the first week itself. The film critics had expectations from the film to enter the Rs. 200 Cr. club, and so did happen, that too just in 13 days. Film critic Taran Adarsh took to his Twitter account to appreciate Kabir Singh on its double century.
The blockbuster has surpassed the earnings of Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer ‘Bharat’ and record of Vicky Kaushal’s ‘URI: The Surgical Strike’ of 2 weeks. Bharat made its place in the Rs. 200 Cr. club in 14 days whereas Uri made reached the target in 28 days. Therefore, Kabir Singh is the fastest movie of 2019 to cross the benchmark of Rs. 200 Crore in just 13 days. Because of its earnings, critics are also expecting the film to break the record of the total collections of Bharat. Salman Khan’s Bharat earned Rs. 197.7 Crores in 23 days and it seems like Kabir Singh will cross its gross earnings too.
Every good thing has to face Criticism and so did Kabir Singh:
Kabir Singh has not only received love but also faced criticism. Some people are criticizing the film for encouraging violence against women and the use of drugs and alcohol amongst the youth. A news report that came into light recently states that the teenagers below 18 years of age are editing their age on Aadhar Card’s to watch Kabir Singh. This is because the film received A-certificate from the censor board. Apart from this incident, a doctor has also raised an objection to the image of doctors that is portrayed in the film.
This is how people commented on his Instagram posts:
Besides the criticism, the film is being loved by the audience and the social media is flooded with the posts related to Kabir Singh. Nonetheless, Shahid Kapoor’s performance in the film Kabir Singh is being considered as the best performance of his career and Shahid is really thankful for the same.
