The makers of Raees are struggling to find an appropriate release date. Earlier the film was scheduled to release on Eid 2016 clashing with Sultan. After avoiding a clash, the team of Raees announced that the film would now release on Republic Day next year. However, this has now turned out to be a hasty decision as Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil too will release on the same date.

SRK has had to step up negotiations and on Monday night, the actor and the film’s producer Ritesh Sidhwani met Rakesh Roshan for an another long round of negotiations. Raees director Rahul Dholakia was apparently left out of the meeting as his rant on Twitter didn’t go down well with Sr Roshan.

A source revealed, “It was around midnight when the two entered Rakesh’s house and the conversation lasted for several hours. It was also rare for Sr Roshan to stay up so late in the night as he is in the habit of going to bed early. Both the parties discussed how the films would eat into each other’s business if they come out on the same day.”

However the Kaabil team, seems in no mood to back down . A source revealed, “Rakesh inquired about SRK’s health and they spoke at length about other movies as well. In fact, SRK was quite inspired by some of the life-lessons that Rakesh gave him over the meeting. Ritesh, as a producer, stuck only to the matter at hand, hoping for an amicable solution to the release date clash. While he made a request to Rakesh to shift his release date, the latter refused to budge.”

  1. Ya there is no need for kaabil delaying…b’coz they booked this date before raaes team..eid was the best date for raaes film..if had it released on eid then it would have easily crossed 200 crore marks..now kaabil will come solo on Republic day…nd raaes on 19th may post ipl ….

  2. I don’t get raees will clash with a other films so it should have been released on eid first the film would have done more business because it was eid and there were many hoildays second it wkuldnhave eaten sultsn business as a result sulatan wouldn not have done so much business they made a huge mistake they can still release on 17 the December or they can release on bakra eid which is 3 holidays in Islamic world so I am sure it will do more business than a clash eid will fall on Thursday 15 sept so it is a 4 day weekend and I am sure it will do 150 crore in 4 days in India.

    my vot to disaster
    main nhi dekhne wala aisa movie jisme khud actor ko bharosa nhi content me thats why uska film pit jayega
    buri tarike se
    isi saal koi normal date pe realease kardo film achahoga toh jarur chalega bura hoga toh superflop hone se bhagwan bhi nhi bacha sakta
    for ex jungle book realeased on normal date and collected 180 cr
    content is king

  6. @bollyarena

    There is no news and statement og Rakesh Roshan regarding refusal…It will take some time for official announcement then why you guys posting this nonsense, stupid and baseless article. Is this for gaining maximum hits of your page from viewers….

    I must say….GANDI PUBLICITY….

  7. To all idiots,requesting is not begging.SRK and roshans were good friends.there is no need for anyone to beg.
