Kabir Singh has put off all records and expectations behind, to become a massive success for Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani. Breaking yet another milestone recently, the film crossed the 150 crore barrier on its ninth day since the release.

It is likely to cross the Rs. 175 crore mark on Sunday, reports Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh. The film collected Rs. 17.10 crore on Saturday alone and it has collected over Rs. 163.73 crores within 9 days of its release. In his tweet, Taran Adarsh stated that Kabir Singh has emerged as the third highest grosser of 2019. The film has even surpassed the business of Akshay Kumar’s Kesari and Ajay Devgn-led Total Dhamaal.

Sharing Kabir Singh’s Box Office Collection from Day 9, and its overall report, Taran wrote, “Kabir Singh crosses Rs. 150 cr. Will cross 175 cr today [Day 10]… Now third highest grosser of 2019, surpassing lifetime biz of Kesari and Total Dhamaal… Trending better than “Padmaavat” in Week 2… [Week 2] Fri 12.21 cr, Sat 17.10 cr. Total: Rs. 163.73 cr. India biz.”

In a separate tweet, Taran Adarsh wrote that the film is expected to surpass the lifetime business of Salman Khan’s Bharat and Vicky Kaushal’s Uri: The Surgical Strike in the coming week. Taran Adarsh shared the box office report of the films and tweeted:

Elsewhere, Ayushmann Khurana’s Article 15 is also minting a lot of money. Being Ayushmann’s third hard-hitting film, the audiences are thronging to the theatres to catch a glimpse of him playing a cop. Article 15 quickly became the second-biggest opener of the actor’s career.

The weekend gave a boost to the film’s box office collection as it earned Rs 7.25 crore on its second day, Saturday, and it is expected to bag Rs 8 crore on the third day, Sunday, of its release. Article 15 highlights the caste discrimination in the country through a fictional mix of various incidents. The film also shows light on 2014 Badaun gang-rape and murder. The film is directed by Anubhav Sinha, who directed the 2018 film Mulk.
