Kabir Singh box office collection: Shahid Kapoor starrer not only putting up stunning performance at the box office in India, the love story has made a mark in Down Under too. The film has broken several records in the domestic market and now has become the first Indian film to cross A$1 million mark in Australia, surpassing the lifetime business of GullyBoy, Uri: The Surgical Strike, Bharat, Kalank, Kesari and Total Dhamaal in Australia. The film earned Rs A$ 1.16 million so far in Australia.
The Sandeep Reddy Vanga directorial venture earlier surpassed the lifetime collection of Uri in India. After earning over Rs 20 crore on the opening day, collection of the movie has been steady so far. It crossed the Rs 100-crore mark in the first week itself.
"#KabirSingh is the first *Indian film* to cross A$ 1 million mark in #Australia in 2019... The film - still running in theatres - has surpassed *lifetime biz* of several biggies, including #GullyBoy, #Uri, #Bharat, #Kalank, #Kesari and #TotalDhamaal in #Australia... Data follows," film trade analyst and critic Taran Adarsh tweeted today.
The film has been criticised by many people for its depiction of violence against women. This, however, did not dent collection of the film. The movie did well despite releasing when the Cricket World Cup frenzy gripped Indians and new releases.
Here are top 5 grossers in Australia in 2019 (Estimates given by Taran Adarsh on his Twitter handle):
1. Kabir Singh: A$ 1,155,898
2. GullyBoy: A$ 944,974
3. Uri: A$ 887,921
4. Bharat: A$ 852,506
5. Kalank: A$ 834,037
