Recently Rakesh Roshan announced that he will be making Krrish 4 next year and will be releasing the film on Christmas 2018. Interestingly Shahrukh Khan is releasing his film with Aanand L. Rai on the same time. This will result in the second clash between SRK and Hrithik Roshan after Raees and Kaabil.

However, Rakesh Roshan has confirmed that there will be no clash. When a popular daily asked Roshan about it, he revealed that he had no idea about the clash. He said, “It is unethical for me to release my film on this date as Shah Rukh has already announced his movie.”

SRK and Krrish 4

On the other hand, he is determined of releasing Kaabil on the date he had announced. Talking about it, he stated, “I had announced the date for Kaabil earlier. If they are coming on the same date, then I can’t do anything about it. I don’t know what they will eventually decide. We’re here to make films, not create controversies. As far as Shah Rukh is concerned, he’s like a younger brother to me. I gave him a break in King Uncle, and then worked with him in Karan Arjun and Koyla.”

The filmmaker was further asked whether he would shift the dates if SRK requests. To which he said, “I don’t move my release date, if I have announced it first. When Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai was releasing on January 14, 2000, Aamir Khan’s Mela was coming on January 7, Shah Rukh’s Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani on January 21 and Anil Kapoor’s Pukar on February 4. Some distributors suggested I move my film as Hrithik was a newcomer. They left the film because I didn’t change my release date.”

Was this a hidden message asking Shah Rukh to step back from clashing with Kaabil? What do you think? Tell us in the comments below.


  1. More respect Roshan unlike that Chimpgay johar who despite Ajay Devgn announcing 1st he still persisted. Now look how people are already putting their focus on Shivaay not those nonsense adult movies

  2. They should shift raees and raees makers should not underestimate kaabil .Rakesh roshan understands trade and business very well and rakesh roshan should stick to the date ,what he said is absolutely correct ,he has every right to release his movie on 26th jan .
    This mess is created by raees producers as there is no logic of announcing raees on 26th jan when kaabil was already announced ,they should learn from RR ,when he came 2 know that srk’s film announced on dec 2018 ,he immediately shifted k4 .
    Clash hi karna tha sultan se karte and eid is a big period which can accomodate two films .

    • bhai eid 2016 tak raees ki shooting complete nahi hui thi. Aur yeh salman khan ne bhi confirm kiya tha

  3. Yes there will no clash between Krrish 4 and SRK -anand film.rakesh sir announced krrish 4 on Christmas 2018 as he think SRK will run away from seeing this announcement.But SRK will not postponed his film from Christmas.

  4. And what about Rakesh Roshan’s ethics when he decided to release Kaabil when Baadshaho was announced first ??
    If SRK is like a younger brother to him, he should understand that Raees cannot be postponed without suffering a lot, because the buzz around a project doesn’t sustain if it keeps being postponed. Anyway, I’m really happy that Anand L Rai’s next will have a solo release !

  5. Solo releases in diwali and Christmas 2018….who will bag the eid ????

    2017 eid -tubelight
    Diwali- golmaal4 and surely will be facing a clash with some movie
    Christmas- tiger zinda hai will surely face either full or half clash with padmavati or sanjay duty biopic……
