Shahid Kapoor-starrer Kabir Singh (2019) is unstoppable at the box office even on a Monday, its first week day. The Hindi remake, directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, made as much as Rs17 crore in the day, as per figures shared by BoxOfficeIndia.com. 

The film’s Monday number is just 15% less than what it earned on its opening day on Friday – Rs20 crore. This is a rare case for a film that opened big on its first day. 

This is not only an excellent number, it also has the 14th highest Monday collection ever for a Hindi film. It leaps ahead of the Ajay Devgn-starrer, Shivaay (2016), which had made Rs15.59 crore on its first Monday, a holiday. 

The Hindi version of SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali: The Conclusion (2017) tops the list with Rs39.81 crore. Its first Monday was a partial holiday because of World Labour Day on 1 May. But this was dubbed in Hindi, we can't call it a Hindi film. So if we don’t consider that film, Kabir Singh technically gains 13th position. 

As per trade sources, Kabir Singh, which also stars Kiara Advani, is made at a budget around Rs60 crore. It has earned a mammoth Rs87.75 crore so far in just four days. It is well on its way to becoming a blockbuster. The film is expected to reach Rs100 crore today.
