We all know that Shahrukh Khan’s Raees and Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil will clash at the box office next year. After the debacle of Mohenjo Daro, it was speculated that Kaabil will shift from 26th January to avoid the clash.
However, the makers of Kaabil have confirmed that they are no in mood of changing the release date and it will arrive as per scheduled. The director Sanjay Gupta also shared a poster of Kaabil and captioned it as “R E P U B L I C D A Y 2017.”
A few weeks back, Shahrukh visited Hrithik’s house to meet his father, producer Rakesh Roshan, to discuss the clash and somehow resolve it. However, Rakesh Roshan refused to shift away from Republic Day.
Earlier, while interacting with the media during Eid, SRK said, “We have spoken to Hrithik and also Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar (producers of Raees). That was a month ago, but I guess now we can do some adjustments. Rakeshji (Kaabil producer Rakesh Roshan) and Ritesh and Farhan will be meeting again. We are trying to figure things out, so we don’t have a clash.”
It seems with nobody ready to budge, Shah Rukh and Hrithik are setting up for the biggest clash of 2017.
