The original fears that Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees will clash with Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil were averted when late on Monday, Shah Rukh drove to Hrithik’s residence with Raees producer Ritesh Sidhwani in tow, and left five hours later, beaming.
January promised fireworks at the box office if there is no compromise between the two super heros.
Sources claim that Kaabil producer Rakesh Roshan has agreed to vacate the January 26 slot to allow a solo release window to Shah Rukh Khan.
Says a source, “After initial discussions about avoiding a box office collision, Monday night’s marathon meeting ended on a positive note. Neither party wanted their film to suffer. Kaabil’s release is likely to be postponed and Raees will get a clear window.”
Shah Rukh tweeted about the meeting, hinting at a favourable outcome. The tweet, posted at 4.05 on Tuesday morning, read: “Met friend/ mentor/ family after many days. Mr. R.Roshan reminded me…it’s not important to do 2 much, it’s important to get 1 right. Thx sir (sic).”
There were reports earlier that the Kaabil makers were reluctant to shift release date of their film.
When asked about this Hrithik said, “SRK and I are actors. This should be left to the producers to discuss.” -CINEWS
