As we all know that Shahrukh Khan’s Raees was to clash with Salman Khan’s wrestling Sultan on Eid. However on Tuesday, the makers of the Rahul Dholakia-directed drama announced that it would be released on January 26, clashing with Rakesh Roshan’s Kaabil, featuring son Hrithik and Yami Gautam.

As per the reports Rakesh Roshan says, “We announced it first, way back in February, and will stick to our release date. I can’t comment on what happens at the box-office now, but we have begun a three-month marathon schedule after which we will embark on post-production.”

Director Sanjay Gupta got into action at the end of March with Yami. Hrithik joined the shoot on May 4. “It’s an interesting love story-cum-revenge drama based in Mumbai. Hrithik and Yami fall in love and get married, but in a plot twist her character dies, following which he sets out to seek revenge,” reveals writer Sanjay Masoomm who spent four months working on the dialogues and has worked on ‘Krrish’ and ‘Krrish 3’ earlier. “Hrithik plays a blind man so I had to understand that aspect of the character before writing.”

“Blinded by a million eyes watching me, when in fact I am the observer, I am the watcher. The mind’s eye sees all,” Hrithik had posted while sharing the film’s digital poster. Mirror has learnt that Yami is blind too. Sanjay met a few blind men and saw more than 20 films, including ‘Sparsh’ and ‘Qatl’ as part of his prep. They were shooting a Ganpati sequence on the first day of Hrithik’s shoot and will be filming two romantic songs to be choreographed by Ahmed Khan soon.

    • it will be like fan on boxoffice…..
      jyada bada wala hai kya?
      site par se chori karke film dekne wala mark karne ko bol rha hai, tiya.

  1. aur indicine bakri eid ki kyu baat kar rahe kya sirf !st weekend ka business hi matter karta hai. agar main hota raees ki team main aur mujhe screen count less mil rahe hai eid main aur mujhe apni film par trust hai toh main eid k 1 week pehle hi release kar doonga usse ye hoga hi wednesday tak muhe pure screen milenge 1st weekend to at least 50cr ka hoga hi hoga aur appreciation mila movie ko to na chahte hue bhi single sceen main atleast 1 ya 2 show to rahenge hi.main salman ka bahut hi bada fan hu par agar sultan k review avg. mile to kyunki sultan ek love story toh hum abhi kuch nahi krh sakte par by chance aisa hua to raees ki lotri lag jayegi aur agar review good aaye to bhi itna problem nahi hoga kyuki last year humne bahubali aur bajrangi bhaijaan ka clash dekha hua hai audience achhi movie ko dekhte hi hai mostly audience ne dono movie dekhi thi aur wo yaha pe bhi sakta hai.jaise BB ka 2nd week jabardast tha wiasa raees ka bhi ho sakta if content is good. par yaha pe mujhe aisa lag raha hai ki makers ko apni film par trust nahi hai.hope you like my thought

  2. SULTAN k darr se 26 jan ko shift ki thi,
    ab KAABIL se bach kar kahan bhagega HAKLA??
    Darr gya Hakla, apni aukaat samaj gya ki salmaan or hrithik k aage yeh paani bharta hai

  3. i was a fan of SRK..but after series of B grade films, cum flops and arrogant behavior he has proved he s a B grade super star ..now he has yet again proved that he’s scared of a fight with the real KING of Bolly wood ( salman) and has moved his film to Jan 2017..SRK has become “B grade King of Bollywood” duniya ka sable bada B grade SUPER STAR”…Now he will loose the battle with A grade Hrithik , much better super star than SRK..

  4. every SRKians r pissed off because of raees delayed. Very bad decision. Mafia movie on republic day? makers hv gone mad.. Film flop jayegi. I keenly waited 4 the movie more than one year. But they put water on this.. Now do not wanna watch raees.
