Rahul Dholakia’s Raees
starring Shah Rukh Khan in the lead, has survived its clash with the Hrithik Roshan-starrer Kaabil
and has already earned close to Rs 50 crore in the domestic market. Kaabil
too is making strides though it’s behind Raees
with around Rs 30 crore. Now, SRK’s angry young man image has earned appreciation from none other than the original Angry Young Man, Amitabh Bachchan.
The actor tweeted, “T 2515 – Congratulations Shahrukh .. RAEES .. loved your anger in it !!” Coming from Bachchan, SRK would definitely relish it. King Khan was quick to reply, “Aap se hi sikha hai sir (Learnt from you only).”
Raees has Shah Rukh coming out of his romantic avatar after ages and critics and audiences love him in the film. King Khan needs a blockbuster and it remains to be seen if Raees gives him the much-wanted one.
However, Big B has praised Kaabil too, hailing it as “most convincing film.”
Beyond doubt, both Raees and Kaabil have been given a push by the legendary actor.
