Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starer Kabir Singh has emerged the highest-grossing film of 2019 in just 20 days of its release. The movie has beaten the lifetime box office collection of Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam starer Uri: The Surgical Strike.

There was an India vs New Zealand World Cup semi-final match yesterday which was played in a span of two days, while it impacted the business of other films, Kabir Singh remained unaffected. Kabir Singh had collected Rs 3.20 crore on its day 19 and on its day 20, the movie has more or less remained stable. It has collected Rs 3.11 crore on its day 20, taking its 20 days total to Rs 246.28 crore.

Kabir Singh has now pushed Uri: The Surgical Strike to the second spot in the list of the highest-grossing films of the year. The lifetime box office collection of Uri: The Surgical Strike is Rs 245.36 crore. Kabir Singh is now all set to hit Rs 250 crore mark in the next two days.

It will be interesting to see how well it will be able to hold its collections at the box office once Hrithik Roshan starer Super 30 hits the screens. Some trade analysts had estimated that the movie might hit Rs 300 crore mark but that seems unlikely now. The best-case scenario seems to be somewhere between Rs 270 crore-Rs 280 crores. However, it will all depend on its collection in the upcoming weekend.

Meanwhile, Ayushmann Khurrana’s latest release Article 15 has once again proven that content is king. A film that highlights the stark reality of caste discrimination in India has not only got a thumbs up from critics but fans too. And the film’s box office collection is proof of it. After becoming the second-biggest opener of Ayushmann’s career, Article 15 has crossed the Rs 50-crore mark in the second week of its release.

Talking about Article 15, the 34-year-old actor told Hindustan Times, “The success of Article 15 tells me that I am on the right track and choosing the right films that stand for quality.”
