Last week Rakesh Roshan decided to postpone the release of his Kaabil by one day to Jan. 26 to cash in one Republic Day holidays but now they have followed the original decision to release it on Jan. 25.
The film will clash with Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Raees’ which will also be released on Jan. 25.
In a bid to avert a clash with Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Raees’, director Rakesh Roshan had announced early this week that his film ‘Kaabil’, starring Hrithik Roshan, will release on January 25, contrary to its initial 26 January release.
However, it looks like the big box-office clash is still on as team ‘Raees’ has also advanced their worldwide release to January 25, as mentioned in their theatrical trailer which released online yesterday.
When this news was brought to Rakesh Roshan’s notice, the filmmaker said that he was happy that people were following his lead.
When he came to know about the Raees release date Rakseh said , “I am happy that people are following my experience and business acumen.”
Despite requests from distributors to stick to Jan. 26 holiday Roshan Sr. and director Sanjay Gupta felt that releasing the thriller on January 25 would be a wise idea and hence, made an announcement regarding the same.
A confident Rakesh said, “SRK’s last three films have been flops… I don”t think his new film can pose any competition to Kaabil.” – CINEWS
