Hrithik Roshan to meet Farhan Akhtar for release deadlock of Kaabil and Raees

With the Hrithik Roshan starrer Raees inveigling itself into the prized release date (January 26) of Rakesh Roshan-Sanjay Gupta's Kaabil, the stage is set for a potentially ruinous clash at the box-office on Republic Day.

Apparently, the leading man of Kaabil, Hrithik Roshan who is a childhood buddy of Farhan Akhtar the co-producer of Raees, has sent out feelers to the latter for an amicable settlement to the deadlock. Says a source close to the development, "Hrithik and Farhan go back a long way. They are childhood friends. In fact, when Farhan turned director with Dil Chahta Hai, Hrithik was his first choice for the cast. They later worked together in Lakshya. This clash is not what either of them would want."

A meeting between the two friends is on the cards. But the problem is, neither of the two parties is willing to back out. When contacted Kaabil producer Rakesh Roshan, he said, "Kaabil is releasing on January 26, 2017. I had planned the release in February this year which is almost a year in advance."

Raees director Rahul Dholakia seems resigned to a clash. Says Rahul, "It's the producers' call. I am with them in whatever they feel is best for the film." It's now up to the two buddies Farhan and Hrithik to avert this needless clash.
