Shahid Kapoor’s Kabir Singh has broken 10 records

Shahid Kapoor’s latest Kabir SIngh may have been mired in controversy regarding its misogynistic content but the film is certainly attracting all the footfall it could, even as it completes a month since the release. The film has now earned Rs 266.62 in domestic market, having earlier eclipsed this year’s highest grossers such as Salman Khan’s Bharat and Vicky Kaushal’s Uri The Surgical Strike, reports Hindustan Times.

As per Boxofficeindia report, Vicky’s Uri The Surgical Strike collected Rs 245 crore and Salman’s Bharat earned Rs 210 crore.

Directed by Sandeep Vanga Reddy, Kabir Singh is an official remake of his 2017 Telugu hit Arjun Reddy that featured Vijay Devarakonda and Shalini Pandey. Sandeep also directed the original where a brilliant but flawed medical student goes into an abyss of drugs and alcohol after his affair turns sour.

Here are ten records Kabir Singh broke since its release last month:

1. Biggest solo hit of Shahid’s career
