Roshan duo, Hrithik and Rakesh have been in the news for a while. Recently the director opened about his equation with his son, his upcoming film Krrish 4, the Kangana Ranaut controversy, and more in a chat with HT Cafe.

The film-maker has been asked why he chooses to work only with his son. He justifies the move by saying “I am not only a father, but also a film-maker. I look at Hrithik as an actor,”.

While talking about Krrish 4 he said, “During Ganeshotsav, my wife (Pinky Roshan) showed me a picture of Lord Ganesha dressed liked Krrish. It was a tweet that she had received. It gave me the confidence to believe that people are still interested in the series. We can match up to Hollywood, but we don’t have that kind of budgets. They make projects worth $300 million. That is something we can’t do. We have to rely more on our content for such films.

When asked about Hrithik-Kangana Ranaut controversy he revealed, “Hrithik is different. Even when someone [Kangana] was spreading lies about him, he chose to stay calm and dignified. If he does choose to come out with the truth, it will shock everyone. He is busy with his upcoming movie. Once he gets free, he might speak about it. It is his choice.”


Roshan’s Kaabil is going to clash with SRK’s Raees next year. “I had announced my film in February last year. A sudden announcement about the release of another movie is a little unethical. However, I can’t stop any film from releasing on the same day.”

Reportedly SRK met Rakesh Roshan for discussing the clash and there were reports that they have agreed to avoid the clash. However, he has confirmed that he will not change Kaabil release date.

“We have met a couple of times. I have told him that nobody is going to gain [anything] out of this clash. I have also explained to him that I can’t shift my film’s release date, as I am a little superstitious. I would have changed the date had I not announced the film. I don’t have an ego.”


  1. Milan luthiana directed Badshao earlier announced in 26th Jan 2017 before Rakesh Roshen announce kaabil. But the sudden announcement of Raees roshen stats playing mind game if Raees wasn’t moved from eid still kaabil will not release solo

  2. my dear Roshans… get free publicity thats it…now i am damn sure Kaabil will release 26th Jan even Raees not release. this is called Marketing…in that case Raees will be looser in both the cases…means chit bhi mera or pat bhi mera.

    now nobody intrested how intresting project is Kaabil who is director? what the contecnt only they need to pull down SRK Raees so Bhai FANS 200% intrested to release Kaabil….
    if Raees postponed it will seriously hit to SRK image? in media will be ready with headlines Kya SRK khatam, SRK dead, SRK FADED brand???? means Qabar tak le jayege media wale if not release. so damage to whenever release 26th or some other date.
    third case if it relases on same day may be SRK bad pahse still bite him nobody knows it will underperform and Kabil even 1% more better than Raees Hrithik will be apllouded like Mega star….and Than social media is there with Bhai fans to Bhagat Boycott Raees…

    in any case Kabil will already in winning jack pot in terms of Marketing to publicity.if it entertain general Audience…than sky is limit.

    • Wait for announcement of total screens as single screen will he in huge number for raees because of bahubali2……Its a deal…..
      Srk raees will be releasing in around 3500screens to 3800screens but kaabil in maximum 2000screens….

      • MY DEAR RJ…am in favor of Raees am SRK fan but put my name as Sultan bcz jo bhi palat ke comment karta hai tu indirect way Sallu ko jata hai…means indirect way un ko hi jata hai…magar bhai fans ko dimag kaha..isko bolte hai ek teer se do shikar…

        • Kuch Maza nahe aaya… Apna Sahe naam likho, Apke sultan Nam rakhne sai na to bhai Ka stardom hoga na us Ka film par asar parrhe ga.. aur yahan jo bhi bhai Ko kuch kahe direct ya indirect us say bhai Ko koyi asar nahe parrhe ga… ya sirf tum.apne ap ko khush rakhne kay liye aisa kar rahe ho.. zyada khush fehmi ka shikar na bano..
