Hrithik Roshan-starrer Kaabil is slated to clash with Shah Rukh Khan's Raees on January 26, 2017.
According to a report in Pinkvilla, when SRK was asked about the clash between these two major releases, he replied saying, "We are in talks with Rakesh ji and Hrithik".
He tweeted, "Dear All KAABIL releases on Jan 26, 2017". Absolutely no change in date. "Hope this clears all unnecessary rumours.Warm regards".
"We have discussed with Hrithik for "Kaabil" because it has just started its shoot". Rakeshji and Ritesh and Farhan will be meeting again. We all have faced it at the certain point of time that two big films came together and did not get the desired theatrical release.
Shah Rukh Khan seems to have learnt his lesson from losses, his film Dilwale incurred when it willingly clashed with Bajirao-Mastani. "Till the time we have eight to nine thousand theatres for release of two big films, this can not happen", he said. Explaining his reasons further, SRK added, "I think a big film should release in 3,500-4,000 theatres". We were working on "Raees" and I got hurt (so "Raees" got pushed).
Starring Yami Gautam in lead role, "Kaabil" would clash with SRK's highly-awaited film ' Raees' at the box-office.
