Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starrer ‘Kabir Singh’ is showing no signs of slowing down at the box office. The Sandeep Vanga directorial that released on June 21, has already broken several records and now is on its way to make some more. The Shahid Kapoor starrer entered the 100 crore club in just five days and has become the highest opener of the actor’s career so far.

Last week, Ayushmann Khurrana starrer ‘Article 15’ hit the theatres and it has become the actor’s second highest opening film. On its day one, this Anubhav Sinha directorial collected around Rs. 5. 02 crores approx. Going the positive word of mouth and praises being showered upon it by the critics and the audience alike, it’s earning has witnessed a boost.

The Shahid Kapoor starrer (which is still running) is also one of the top five highest grossing films of this year so far. It is being speculated that in the coming days, the film might surpass the lifetime collection of ‘Bharat’ and ‘Uri’

Whereas Ayushmann’s ‘Article 15’, that released June 28, on has collected around Rs. 8 crores on its day 2. So the total collection of the film so far is 13.02 crores approx. Going by the film’s budget and scale, its increasing collections are a good sign. Hope in the coming days it surpasses everyone’s expectations.

The irony of the situation is, ‘Kabir Singh’ despite being a highly problematic film is unstoppable at the ticket windows, whereas a socially relevant film like ‘Article 15’ is slowly and steadily gaining pace. Perhaps that perfectly explains the kind of times that we are living in.
