Kabir Singh has also toppled Uri: The Surgical Strike to become 2019's highest earning movie. Upon its release, it also marked Shahid's highest opening day movie; of course, it is also now his biggest hit of all time. Shahid co-stars with Kiara Advani in the film.
Kabir Singh's journey in theatres has been mired in controversy with critics slamming the film for glorifying misogyny and promoting toxic masculinity. Director Sandeep Reddy Vanga's defence of the movie led to more criticism. Kabir Singh is the Hindi remake of Telugu movie Arjun Reddy, starring Vijay Deverakonda.
