Much discussed first box-office clash of 2017 between Shah Rukh Khan‘s Raees and Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil, seems like it is averted! Well, not completely,
It was even reported that Shah Rukh himself spoke to Rakesh Roshan, the producer of the film to change the date. But all was in vain. If you think it’s not happening anymore, hold your horses!
It has been now announced that Rakesh Roshan’s Kaabil will release a day earlier instead of January 26 and you will get to watch the movie in the theaters from January 25, 6pm onwards. So it is releasing a day earlier.
Buzz was that Hrithik and Shah Rukh might both be victorious at the box office after all if their mutual deal goes well. A source close to the deal said, “People might think that this clash will affect both severely but SRK and Hrithik have brokered a deal which will minimize the losses manifold. They have divided the screens among themselves in such a way that none of them is adversely affected. Even the territories have been worked on.”
The Sanjay Gupta directorial, which also features Yami Gautam, Kaabil is a one of its kind romantic thriller where Hrithik plays a visually-impaired mimic artist.
Let’s see if the box-office delivers one or two successful films in January 2017!
