Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani’s Kabir Singh’s popularity has spread like wildfire. The film refuses to stop at the box office as even after weeks of its release, Kabir Singh is leaving the cash registers ringing. According to trade analyst and film critic, Taran Adarsh, Kabir Singh has collected Rs 267.29 crores domestically, reports mid-day.
Talking about this feat achieved by Kabir Singh, the film’s male lead, Shahid Kapoor told that the film has done well because our audience has grown over a period of time. The actor, who has done some edgy characters in films like Kaminey, Haider and Udta Punjab, Shahid believes that Kabir Singh was the most flawed character he ever portrayed.“Honestly speaking, when we talk about Kaminey and Haider, for me, the big difference between them and Kabir Singh is [seeing] the way Indian audiences have evolved. I’ve played complex, edgy and dark characters in the past as well. For instance, Tommy Singh [from Udta Punjab] was really flawed, but the kind of impact those films made were slightly limited,” told Shahid.
The Kabir Singh actor believes that the Indian audience has matured a lot over the years and that too, on a wider scale.
“Now, they are accepting and open to all kinds of characters. My most flawed character [of Kabir Singh] has been my most loved one. And that only goes on to show that the audience has matured a lot. And so, this is a very encouraging time for creative people, as now, they don’t need to follow the stereotypical trajectory that has been followed in the past. We have a very intelligent, informed and aware audience, who judge things on merit.
