Shahid Kapoor’s latest Kabir SIngh may have been mired in controversy regarding its misogynistic content but the film is certainly attracting all the footfall it could, even as it completes a month since the release. The film has now earned Rs 266.62 in domestic market, having earlier eclipsed this year’s highest grossers such as Salman Khan’s Bharat and Vicky Kaushal’s Uri The Surgical Strike.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the figures, “#KabirSingh biz at a glance... Week 1: ₹ 134.42 cr Week 2: ₹ 78.78 cr Week 3: ₹ 36.40 cr Week 4: ₹ 16.66 cr Total: ₹ 266.26 cr India biz. ALL TIME BLOCKBUSTER.”
