Finally, the much-awaited feat has been achieved by Kabir Singh. Shahid Kapoor's film has become the highest earning Bollywood movie of 2019 and toppled Uri: The Surgical Strike from the top spot. In almost three weeks, Kabir Singh has recorded a score of Rs 246 crore and now eyes a new bounty - Rs 250, tweeted trade analyst Taran Adarsh. "Kabir Singh emerges the highest grossing Hindi film of 2019... Inches closer to Rs 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: Rs 246.28 cr.

2019's list if highest earning movies, topped by Kabir Singh and with Uri on the second spot, also has Salman Khan's Bharat, Akshay Kumar's Kesari and the multi-starrer Total Dhamaal in the subsequent spots.
Meanwhile, Shahid Kapoor has been responding to the box office numbers with quirky reactions on Twitter with each passing day. As Kabir Singh soared to the top of the highest earning movies' list, Shahid recorded his reaction with a single emoji.
On Wednesday, Shahid Kapoor had warned us that something like this was going to happen because Kabir Singh is "marching ahead full steam."

Criticism aside, Kabir Singh does deserve a big round of applause for braving scathing reviews and even the ongoing World Cup. Kabir Singh also remained unaffected by the new releases which joined the theatres in subsequent weeks - Article 15, Spider-Man: Far From Home and Malaal.
