Shahid Kapoor starrer Kabir Singh has emerged a historical blockbuster at the domestic market. Into tenth week of its release, Kabir Singh has raked in around INR 276 crores from India. At the same time Kabir Singh has fetched $ 6.75 m from Overseas.
While domestic numbers are staggering and historical, overseas numbers of the film are way below the mark. In Overseas market the film performed best is North America bringing in a business of around $ 2.6m. This accounts for the 40% of the total overseas business of Kabir Singh . Australia is performing second best for Shahid Kapoor starrer with A$ 1.2m. UK registered around £ 310k in lifetime run which is a very low result.
Overall the business in overseas was low considering historical business at domestic market. The film lost huge chunk of business due to non release in Pakistan. Kabir Singh was not released in Pakistan due to the ban on Bollywood films. The rate at which Pakistani industry is growing and looking at the current release flow the film would easily have gone past PKR 10 crore mark in Pakistan in first 10 days. Kabir Singh had very bright chances of even hitting PKR 20 crore mark by the end of its run which means lifetime run would have gone around $ 1.5m.
Pakistani business for Kabir Singh would have been easily miles ahead of Australia, UK and UAE’s numbers and would have been second highest grossing market for the film. The film has lost at least a gross business of over $ 1.5m due to non release in Pakistan.
