Hrithik Roshan’s KAABIL and Shah Rukh Khan’s RAEES clash has been talk of the town ever since it was decided these films will arrive on Republic Day i.e. January 26th, 2016.
Trade analysts, fans, producers, makers, stars, industry, in fact everyone has been discussing the clash and there were speculations that either of the film would have to push the release or pre-pone the film. But none of them seemed to budge. There were reports earlier that RAEES actor Shah Rukh Khan had paid a midnight visit to Rakesh Roshan so that they could amicably settle the issue but all in vain.
And after Hrithik Roshan’s last film MOHENJO DARO’s debacle at the box office the makers of the film KAABIL refused to postpone the release in any given circumstance. Hrithik Roshan needs a desperate hit to regain his lost glory & status. So, of course KAABIL makers would leave no stone unturned for Hrithik Roshan.
While the makers are adamant on releasing the film on the said period, now going a step ahead the makers made a shocking announcement that KAABIL will be releasing on January 25 after 6 PM IST worldwide in Hindi and Telgu that is a (half) day prior to RAEES which will hit the theaters on January 26. Looks like the strategic move was taken to enjoy the extended Republic weekend which would only help Hrithik’s film to rake in more moolah and thereby have an edge over RAEES.
Well, let’s hope both the films do a considerably good business!
