Kabir Singh might not have gone down well with critics, but it seems that the audience has loved the film starring Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani. The film has opened to good occupancy in the morning, and the box office collection for day one looks quite promising.
According to a report by Boxofficeindia.com, Kabir Singh had the third best advance booking of the year, with pre-release collections of Rs 11.50 crore. Pre-booking for the film opened on Sunday, and it is just behind Marvel blockbuster Avengers: Endgame and Salman Khan’s Eid release, Bharat.
The report also says that Avengers: Endgame collected around Rs 49 crore and Bharat around Rs 23 crore in advance booking. Kabir Singh’s advance booking is better than the multi-starrer release Kalank, which could collect only around Rs 9 crore in pre-release sales. Kabir Singh garnered a wonderful response in the single-screens and seems to have done exceptionally well in cities like Surat, Indore, Bhopal, Jaipur, Ajmer and Latur.
Atul Mohan, Movie Business Analyst, told The Quint that “the buzz for the film is good among youngsters.” “We are looking at Rs 10-12 plus opening day as of today,” he said, adding that post the film’s release the buzz grew in the evening and Kabir Singh is now likely to earn Rs 16-17 crores .
Taran Adarsh had taken to Twitter to share the screen count of the film. “#KabirSingh screen count...India: 3123 Overseas: 493 Worldwide total: 3616 screens Starts with a bang... Not just urban centres, even mass-dominated areas witness excellent occupancy in morning/pre-noon shows... Big Day 1 biz on the cards. India biz,” he wrote.
