Biz on [second] Fri is in double digits, which is exceptional... Will cross Rs 150 cr today [second Sat]... [Week 2] Fri 12.21 cr. Total: Rs 146.63 cr. India biz." Kabir Singh was joined by Ayushmann Khurrana's Article 15 on Friday.

Scores higher numbers than all films released this year... Second Friday biz," Mr Adarsh tweeted.
