Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan has always been in a slight dispute regarding their film release.
It was said that Krish 4 was all set to release in the Christmas season of 2018, but as Shah Rukh Khan starer Anand L Rai’s film is releasing on the same day, the Roshans backed off and chose another day.
But the story doesn’t end there. Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil and SRK’s Raees is releasing in the same date i.e., January 25, 2017.
When angry Rakesh Roshan lashed out at SRK, this is what the king khan said in reply.
“Whatever dates we are taking, they are following us. I would have never done the same. I belong to an old school of filmmaking and I have given 50 years of my life to the industry. I would never release my film on a day when another filmmaker has already announced their film. I decided to remove Krrish 4 also from Christmas 2018 because I saw SRK’s film is coming that day. I could have easily released my film with Befikre or even with Dangal if I had to clash. But when I announced the film in February, I saw a clean window in January and hence I picked the date. I can’t get into this new groove of things because I don’t understand it, ” said Rakesh Roshan.
And this is what king khan told in reply, Actually, we had decided a long time back that both Raees and Kaabil were going to release on the same day. I think we ended the discussion when we established that both films are going to come together. So we had decided along with our exhibitors and distributors that we will release our film on the 25th. Also, I think Kaabil is releasing in the evening so we will take up the regular shows. So, I don’t think there’s any issue of them deciding a release date and us following it. I think it’s fair play that one would want to make the best of a day before 26th, which is a national holiday.”
