It was reported that Hrithik Roshan's Krrish 4 would clash with Aanand L Rai's flick starring Shahrukh Khan in December 2018. However, Rakesh Roshan confirmed that Krrish 4 will not be going head on with SRK's movie and was quoted at TOI as saying,
"It is unethical for me to release my film on this date as Shah Rukh has already announced his movie."
Hrithik Roshan stands firm and will not budge from the Kaabil release date on Republic Day 2017 and SRK's request to shift the movie's release has gone in vain. Shahrukh Khan is worried that Kaabil might hamper his upcoming film Raees at the box office. Rakesh Roshan opened up about Kaabil as,
"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."
