However, since Kangana Ranaut’s and Rajkummar Rao’s Judgementall Hai Kya is releasing on this Friday, Kabir Singh might move out of the theatres and is also getting stiff competition from The Lion King. Nevertheless, the film has become the highest grosser of the year as well as becoming the most lucrative films in Shahid’s filmography.
