Q. What is the future of Raees Vs Kaabil clash? Will Raees get a solo release on 26th January?

Ans. So this is one question that is being asked by the viewers many times. Well, currently it is wait and watch situation for the makers of both films.

Few days back Shahrukh Khan along with Raees team met Rakesh Roshan and discussed the clash in details. We were the first one to tell you that Rakesh Roshan has politely refused to postpone Kaabil as he has already sold distribution rights.

As of now the team of Raees is waiting for Mohenjo Daro Vs Rustom clash. The word is that they will take any further step after the outcome of this clash. If MD underperforms, then Raees makers will go ahead and will release the film on 26th January. However, if that is not the case then Raees will be postponed to a later date.

As far Kaabil is concerned, Rakesh Roshan is in no mood to change the release date. Even if Mohenjo Daro disappoints at the box office, he will go as per planned. However, the producer has hinted that he will help the Raees team to find a suitable solution to the issue. And we all know how just one underperformer can change things drastically.

The situation is similar to last year’s Dilwale vs Bajirao Mastani clash. As the result gave the confidence to YRF to release Sultan alongside with Raees on Eid. Later on, poor performance of Fan forced Riteish Sidhwani to postpone Raees.

It seems that stakes are much higher for Mohenjo Daro now. The film not only needs to outperform Rustom but also recover its heavy costs. Otherwise, Hrithik will have to face another clash next year.

  1. Best Release Dates for Raees nd Kaabil

    1) Xmas 2016- It will be far better option for Raees or Kaabil to release in Xmas nd clash with Dangal… A far better option than releasing in Republic day nd clashing each other.!!!!

    2)IPL Wknd – (May/ June)

    3)Mar 10 -(13 March Hol i)Currently this date is booked by Karan Johar’ Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya starring Varun nd Alia.
    Every one know that Kjo nd Srk consider each others as brothers nd they many times proved that. So if Srk asked Kjo to move his movie from that date then may be he will move to a later date. More than that Kjo was booked 14 th Apr for Baahubali 2 nd its now postponed to 28 th Apr. So BKD can release on that date.

    4)Apr 14- ( Good Friday/Vishu/Tamil New Year on 14 Apr, Bengali New Year/Himachal Day/Bohag Bihu holiday in 15th Apr)

    5)31st Mar- (Tuesday 4th Apr- Ram Navami)

    Note: In March/April/May/June/July there r some highly anticipated Hollywood films scheduled to release in India next Year like-
    Wolverine 2 – 3rd Mar
    King Kong- 10 Mar
    Fast nd Furious 8- 14 Apr
    GOTG 2-5th May
    Pirates of d Caribbean 5- 26th May
    The Mummy- 9th June
    Transformers 5-23rd June
    Spiderman- 7th August
    War of d Planet of the Apes- 14th July
    Dunkirk-21st July
    Jumanji- 28 July

    Hope SRK ‘ s good Friend Hrithik will avoid the clash…

    My Pick Raees 26th Jan 2017 ( No other big film in same period except XXX 3.)
    Kaabil – Post IPL wknd/Xmas 2016/Holi/

    When u expecting Raees??

  2. wish rustom and mohanjodaro both movies enter into the 200cr. club and have joint success party at their residence as they live in same building

      • @dashing rj , no dear Rustom will easily cross 100cr. That’s not a matter ,thing is how big hit it will be ,n I do no espect more than 150cr as it is third movie of akshay this year it’s not that easy to pull big crowed three times a year ,but I want mohanjodaro to collect a least 200cr. Other wise there will be a question what’s a use of doing 1 movie in a 2 year n not able to even collect 150cr. , u just imagine if akshay will stop doing 3 movies a year and stick with only 1 movie for a year how big will be collection.

      • @virat , hope for best man if both will do good business then it’s good for industry , hope both will be content rich movies , I do not want crap from my favourites

  3. Golden rule

    IF product is even average they don’t BEG dates or POSTPONE number of times. :P

    RIP SrGay Career

    If this news is true then I must say that Srk is a big coward and his fans should stop calling him “King Of Clashes”……1st Srk wait for Salman whether he can complete his movie Sultan on time or not, if he did not complete it on time then he release his movie on EID 2016, otherwise he moves to another date….and we all know what happen Raees move to 26th Jan 2017…….and now again he is waiting to see the outcome of Rustom and MJD clash…if MJD underperform then he will stick to 26th Jan date otherwise he again run from this date and postpond his movie to another date….Such a Coward he is…..this also shows that the maker are not confident with the movie and also not confident on the stardom of Srk…..
    Here I want to clear that my comment is not against Srk (at least not this one), anyone (who have brain) can feel the same thing…

  5. Here is my prediction!

    Raees – 65 Cr – Disaster

    Kaabil – 80 Cr – Flop

    Note :- If clash happens !!!

  6. Mohanjodaro is a huge hit because contant and word of mouth is positve so flop hone ka to koi chance he nahi ha aur ek bat aur phale shahid kapoor ke haider ke band bagi ab akshay ki bari ha jo apni film ko salman ranbeer singh se parmot kar wa raha ha flop ho kar rahegi rustum ab rustam ki bari phir raese ki tayari box office hritik no 1

  7. yeh sala rakesh roshan date change karne wala nahi, so srk. no need to request this ullu ka pattha for delay of his film, u release the same date only to kick him…..

  8. Srk made a huge mistake that he does not released raees against sultan.. I think because of 5days weekend both movies collects atleast 200cr.. And that would be beneficial for both the parties.. Clash king ring se bhag gaya…
