Whatever dates we are taking, they are following us: Rakesh Roshan

A few days back Rakesh Roshan announced that he and his distributors have planned to release Kaabil on January 25 instead of January 26. It will have special preview shows from 6 PM onwards.

Today the makers of Raees have also decided to prepone the film on January 25. It’s releasing straight from morning shows on Wednesday and not evening shows as Kaabil. Thus the direct clash between both films is on.

But now, Rakesh Roshan has broken his silence on the matter as he talked to DNA. “I didn’t know about their date. My distributors said we should come out on January 25 from the evening shows. I didn’t know the Raees team also planned to change their date.”

He adds, “Whatever dates we are taking, they are following us. I would have never done the same. I belong to an old school of filmmaking and I have given 50 years of my life to the industry. I would never release my film on a day when another filmmaker has already announced their film. I decided to remove Krrish 4 also from Christmas 2018 because I saw SRK’s film is coming that day. I could have easily released my film with Befikre or even with Dangal if I had to clash. But when I announced the film in February, I saw a clean window in January and hence I picked the date. I can’t get into this new groove of things because I don’t understand it.”

He also said, “It’s (Raees) a full fledged release on November 25 and not just paid previews. Now that the other film is following my release date, it’s up to my distributors to take a call – whether to release from 6 pm or right from the morning shows.”

It looks like that another box office clash is set to turn ugly.

    SRK is doing right. hrithik and srk both are big stars. they both deserve big release date. but rakesh ji scaring from srk. If rakeshji do not want clash, then he can postpone the release date of kaabil.
