So far, so good! 2019 has truly been a phenomenal year for the box office. Just halfway through the year, we have already seen eight centuries at the ticket windows, seven of which have been hit by Hindi films.
While Hollywood superhero flick Avengers: Endgame shocked us with its gigantic Rs 373.22 crore, a medium-budget Uri: The Surgical Strike, with a lifetime collection of Rs 245.36 crore, turned out to be a game-changer. Kabir Singh sprang a major surprise as it hit the Rs 200 crore club becoming Shahid’s first solo film to do so. Salman Khan’s Bharat, on the other hand, emerged a superhit with Rs 210.68 crore. However, by the superstar’s standards, its performance was rather underwhelming. With Kesari, Akshay Kumar delivered his biggest hit ever.
