Hrithik's film has picked up because of good reviews; his portrayal of a blind dubbing artiste is getting rave reviews. Shah Rukh Khan's Raees, on the other hand, has continued to do well and SRK's portrayal of gangster Raees Alam along with Nawazuddin Siddiqui's cop act has received a thumbs up from the audience. It remains to be seen if Raees and Kaabil cross the Rs 100 crore mark by the end of Sunday.
