In his tweet, Taran Adarsh referred to the film a "lottery." The film is expected to cross the lifetime business of Ranveer Singh's Simmba by Tuesday. That's not it, it is also likely to surpass the business of Vicky Kaushal's Uri: The Surgical Strike, stated Taran Adarsh. The film collected Rs 4.25 crore on Monday alone.

Sharing the film's progress report at the box office, Taran Adarsh tweeted: "Kabir Singh is a lottery... Continues to surprise with solid trending on [third] Mon... Will cross lifetime biz of Simmba today [Tue]... Inches closer to Uri... Fri 5.40 cr, Sat 7.51 cr, Sun 9.61 cr, Mon 4.25 cr. Total: Rs 239.97 cr. India biz."

Film critic Saibal Chatterjee, in his review for NDTV, gave the film a 1.5 star rating and he wrote: "Kabir Singh is beyond redemption. Strictly for Shahid Kapoor fans."

Kabir Singh has been performing brilliantly at the box office so far. On its opening day, it collected Rs 20.21 crore. Besides Shahid, the film also features Kiara Advani in the lead role.
