Shahrukh Khan's Raees and Hrithik Roshan's Kaabil are supposed
to release on January 26, 2017. But Shahrukh wants to avoid the box
office clash between the two films.
In a recent media interaction, Shahrukh Khan said, "We have
spoken to Hrithik and Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar (producers
of Raees). We spoke to them a month back as they were just starting
so we can do some adjustments. So, Rakeshji (Kaabil producer Rakesh
Roshan) and Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar will be meeting
again. We are figuring out so that we don't clash.''
Shahrukh Khan further added, "I think a big film has its own
level of release. It should release in 3,500-4,000 theatres. When
two big films release, we don't get theatrical release we
"Till the time we don't have 8,000-10,000 theatres no two big
films can come. We were working on 'Raees' and I got hurt (so
'Raees' got pushed). The film is ready but we are yet to shoot that
last shot," the superstar said.
