Sandeep Reddy Vanga made his debut as a director in Bollywood with the remake of the movie Arjun Reddy. Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani reprised the roles of Devarakonda Vijay and Shalini Pandey in the Hindi version. The film opened big on the first day but what’s more surprising is the controversy revolving around the movie.
A lot of feminists are finding fault with the movie and wrote negative reviews to kill the film at the box-office. But, none of these reviews became successful in stopping the film from creating a record at the box-office.
The trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#KabirSingh is terrific on Day 1… Emerges Shahid Kapoor’s biggest opener [surpasses *Day 1* biz of #Padmaavat: ₹ 19 cr]… Biggest *non-holiday* opening day of 2019 [surpasses #TotalDhamaal: ₹ 16.50 cr]… Is a craze amongst the youth… Fri ₹ 20.21 cr. India biz.”
