Superstar Shahrukh Khan, whose film Raees clashed with actor Hrithik Roshan's Kaabil at the box office on Wednesday (Jan 25th), says he hoped that they could have avoided the overlap of releases.
"Hrithik wish could have avoided overlap of releases. That said...my love to you and Yami Gautam, dad and Sanjay Gupta. 'Kaabil' will be awesome," Shahrukh tweeted.
Shahrukh Khan's tweet came after Hrithik shared a special message for the Dilwale star saying that as a mentor he is sure that Shahrukh's film will inspire him.
Raees is set against the backdrop of prohibition in Gujarat. The film touches upon the way the alcohol industry crumbled and several illegal activities followed.
In Rahul Dholakia's directorial, Shahrukh Khan essays the title role of Raees, a bootlegger. It also marks Pakistani actress Mahira Khan's foray into Bollywood.
Kaabil, meanwhile, is a love story of a blind couple. The film shows what sets the man on a revenge spree against the villains essayed by Rohit and Ronit Roy. With inputs from IANS.
