Director Sandeep Reddy‘s latest film – Kabir Singh has crossed the benchmark of Rs 250 crore at the Box Office. The Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starrer romantic drama, deemed misogynist by many, collected Rs 2.54 crore on its fourth Friday. This took the total to Rs 252.14 crore. The film has already emerged as the highest-grossing film of the year by beating Uri: The Surgical Strike at the ticket window.
Kabir Singh has been enjoying a terrific Box Office run for the last three weeks. However, now, it’s expected to be hit by Hrithik Roshan starrer Super 30 that was released yesterday. The film has received good word-of-mouth and appeals to the masses. However, Kabir Singh‘s collection seems to be unchallenged for a long time.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to share the latest Box Office figures. He wrote, “#KabirSingh stays strong, despite #Super30 making a dent in biz [multiplexes specifically]… [Week 4] Fri 2.54 cr. Total: ₹ 252.14 cr. India biz.” (sic)

Kabir Singh has drawn the ire of many critics and the audience for encouraging toxic masculinity and violence in a relationship through its story. In the film, a medical student, named Kabir Singh, becomes an alcoholic and a substance abuser after the love of his life gets married to someone else. The film was released on June 21.
