Published

on

Actor Shahid Kapoor’s Kabir Singh has emerged as the most successful Bollywood film of year. The film beat Vicky Kaushal’s Uri with its Wednesday’s box office collections counted in.

Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted on Thursday, “#KabirSingh emerges the highest grossing #Hindi film of 2019… Inches closer to ₹ 250 cr mark… Fri 5.40 cr, Sat 7.51 cr, Sun 9.61 cr, Mon 4.25 cr, Tue 3.20 cr, Wed 3.11 cr. Total: ₹ 246.28 cr. India biz. ALL TIME BLOCKBUSTER,” he wrote in his tweet. Uri’s collections stand at Rs 245 crore.

However, this isn’t the end of the feats achieved by the film. In just 20 days, the film has managed to break several records. Here are the five biggest ones.

10th biggest Hindi hit of all time

By beating Uri at the box office, Kabir Singh has become the 10th most successful Hindi film of all time. Here’s the full list:

1. Baahubali 2 (Hindi)- Rs 510.99 crore

2. Dangal- Rs 387.38

3. Sanju- Rs 342.53

4. PK- Rs 340.8

5. Tiger Zinda Hai- Rs 339.16

6. Bajrangi Bhaijaan- Rs 320.34

7. Padmaavat- Rs 302.15

8. Sultan- Rs 300.45

9. Dhoom3- Rs 284.27

10. Kabir Singh- Rs 246.28

Biggest solo hit of Shahid’s career

While the biggest hit of Shahid’s career is still Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat, which made Rs 585 crore worldwide, Kabir Singh is his biggest solo hit. The success of Padmaavat was mainly credited to Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh. But it should be noted that Shahid is now the fourth actor with more than one film on the top 10 list. Salman Khan, Anushka Sharma and Aamir Khan have three, two and three films, respectively, on the list.

While Katrina Kaif also starred in both Tiger Zinda Hai and Dhoom 3, she wasn’t one of the leads in the former.

Biggest Indian film in Australia this year

Kabir Singh has become the highest grossing Indian film in Australia. Taran Adarsh tweeted that the flick has surpassed Gully Boy, Uri, Bharat, and even south Indian hits Petta, and Maharshi.

Second biggest film of 2019 in India

Kabir Singh is now the most successful Hindi film of this year. However, it has still not been able to surpass the collections of Marvel juggernaut Avenger: Endgame in the country. Here are the most successful films of this year:

1. Avengers: Endgame – Rs 373.22 crore

2. Kabir Singh- Rs 246 crore

3. Uri- Rs 245 crore

4. Bharat- Rs 211 crore

5. Kesari- Rs 154 crore

Fastest Hindi movie to cross Rs 200 crore mark in 2019

Kabir Singh entered the Rs 200 crore club in just 13 days of its run on the domestic box office. The film achieved this feat quicker than Salman Khan’s Bharat (day 14) and Vicky Kaushal-starrer Uri: The Surgical Strike (day 28).

Kabir Singh is the Hindi remake of Telugu hit Arjun Reddy. The original blockbuster starred Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey. Helmed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, who also directed the original film, Kabir Singh tells the story of a short-tempered surgeon Kabir Singh (Shahid Kapoor) who goes on a path of self-destruction, consuming drugs and alcohol after he cannot marry the love of his life Preeti (Kiara Advani).

Published

on

Actors like Kunal Kemmu, Vir Das and Anand Tiwari celebrated seven years of their hit film Go Goa Gone with a video carrying the message of social distancing in times of the coronavirus pandemic.

The zombie apocalypse action comedy film was directed by Raj and DK. It also featured Saif Ali Khan and Puja Gupta.

“7 years of Go Goa Gone!! On this Mother’s Day as go goa gone completes 7 years. The boys and girl wanted to thank Mother Nature for providing us with so many amazing things including. #babajikibooti P.s : it’s home made.. even the video,” Kunal captioned the over two-minute video that he posted on social media on Sunday.

The video promotes washing hands, maintaining social distance and wearing masks.

It left the fans impressed but they all demanded for the film’s sequel.

In January this year, Kunal had said the sequel to Go Goa Gone had been going through logistical issues and hence the project couldn’t take off over the past few years.

Asked when shooting for the film would possibly begin, Kunal had replied: “It’s my question, too, because I have also read the announcement. Other than that, I don’t have any knowledge. They (makers of the film) announced Go Goa Gone 2 twice in the last three years. There are logistical issues. Till the time we don’t start shooting for the film, I will not believe it, because in the past two years I have been excited about that film on different levels and it’s very close to my heart.”
