On the first day of its release, the romantic drama raked in Rs 20.21 crore, making it the biggest opener in Kapoor’s career so far. Kabir Singh was also leaked online by notorious piracy website Tamilrockers, but the breach does not seem to have impacted the film’s earnings.

Kabir Singh is a remake of Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy, starring Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey. Kabir Singh follows a young, successful surgeon played by Kapoor, who turns to a life of drugs and alcohol after his college sweetheart marries another man. The film also stars Kamini Kaushal, Suresh Oberoi, Arjan Bajwa, and Adil Hussain.

Recently, the film’s director, Sandeep Vanga Reddy, was criticised for defending the film’s endorsement of toxic masculinity and violence against women. Defending his film against such criticism, Vanga said in a recent interview, “If you can’t slap, if you can’t touch your woman wherever you want, I don’t see any emotion there. (sic)” He also took aim at his critics calling them “parasites  who are the real threat to the film industry”.
