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.
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.
