Shahid Kapoor's Kabir Singh remained strong at the ticket window at the start of its fourth week in the box office race, even as Hrithik Roshan's Super 30 made a dent on its business, tweeted trade analyst Taran Adarsh. On the first day of its fourth week, Kabir Singh crossed the Rs 250 crore-mark. "Kabir Singh stays strong, despite Super 30 making a dent in business (multiplexes specifically). Total India business is Rs 252.14 crore,' tweeted Taran Adarsh. Earlier this week, Kabir Singh surpassed the lifetime collection of Uri: The Surgical Strike (Rs 240 crore) to claim the title of 2019's highest earning film.

Kabir Singh is the story of the eponymous character, who is a brilliant surgeon dealing with anger management issues and battling alcoholism and substance abuse. The film, which also stars Kiara Advani, was panned by film critics and it was called out by several cinephiles as a 'misogynistic' film which promotes 'toxic masculinity.'

However, the poor reviews did not change the film's box office fate and it went on to become the top earning film of 2019 in three weeks. Speaking of the film's success, Shahid Kapoor said, "The most flawed character I have ever played has become my most loved. Indeed Indian cinema and the audience has come a long way. More power to brave choices. More power to you all for your maturity and humanness."

Your love is so overwhelming words will always fall short. Thank you for understanding him forgiving him and loving him with all your heart. We all fall apart. And we all must strive to rise from our faults. To be better. To be wiser. To be kinder. He is flawed. So are we all. You didn't judge him you experienced him. You understood him. I have never ever felt so thankful. The most flawed character I have ever played. Has become my most loved. Indeed indian cinema and the audience has come a long way. More power to brave choices. More power to you all for your maturity and humanness. You have given me wings to fly. To not only be burdened by the need to be loved to be a star but to have the courage to be hated in equal measure to be an actor. Here's to cinema mirroring life. To protagonists who don't have to be restricted by their goodness and can be human and imperfect. There is perfection in imperfection and that is the beauty and the challenge of this human life. Thank you. Again and again. You all are the heroes of this story.
