Hrithik Roshan: When Raees-Kaabil Do Well, SRK, I, Dad, Farhan & All Will Pop Champagne & Celebrate
The month of January 2017 will see one of the biggest box office clashes in the form of Shahrukh Khan's Raees and Hrithik Roshan's Kaabil. The two actors who played loving brothers in Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham will now battle it out with their respective films at the ticket windows.
While Hrithik had earlier commented on the clash by saying it's not unethical and illegal, he recently spoke about it in a very surprising way in an interview.
The Kaabil actor was quoted saying, "Hopefully both films will do well, but on the whole, it will be a loss of about Rs 100 crores for the industry as compared to both the films releasing individually. My father understands that and he is sad about that, and he thinks that it could have been managed in a better way, but we completely understand Raees was in the waiting for too long. My wish is that when both the films do well, Shahrukh, I, dad, Farhan and everyone will pop champagne and celebrate for each other."
Earlier, in an interview with Rajeev Masand, Duggu had said, "In Hollywood, no two big films have ever clashed. Batman will never come with Superman, Lord of the Rings will not come with Harry Potter. So there they manage it really really well. It made me think that it is actually possible. I shouldn't be okay with it, we should not be okay with it. We should manage our calendar because it is better for the industry. Both the films coming together will be a loss, if both the films are good, we would still earn about Rs 100 crores less in the industry compared to both the films released individually. So it's okay. All I'm saying is that it's unfortunate but it's without blame."
Well, let's hope that both the films receive thumbs up from the audience!
