Although Kabir Singh received mixed reviews from the critics, and has also been vehemently criticised by a section of people, the movie continued to pull huge set of audience since its opening day.
Shahid's performance is being highly applauded, and the film's box office collection certainly suggests that Kabir Singh is winning hearts of most of the people. It will be interesting to see if the film is able to continue the momentum over the weekdays as well.
