Hrithik finally speaks on Kaabil's clash with Raees

- Tanya Malik   27-12-2016


2017 will begin with Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Kaabil’ and Shahrukh Khan’s ‘Raees’. Both the movies are scheduled for release on 25th January 2017. This clash is currently the talk of the town and everyone is waiting to see how the movies will do at the box office. Meanwhile, actor Hrithik Roshan has spoken on this clash. He said,

“It’s not illegal or unethical so its fine. But it is sad and quite an eye opener that although Hollywood and Bollywood share the same calendar but you will never see Batman movies clashing with Superman films or Lord of the Rings clashing with Harry Potter. They manage their calendars so well that two movies will never clash. They are aware that that is best for the industry, because when two films clash. the returns for the industry fall a lot.”

He added, “Hopefully, both films will do well, but on the whole, it will be a loss of about 100 crores for the industry as compared to both films releasing individually. My father understands that and he was sad about that, and he thinks that it could have been managed in a better way, but we completely understand that Raees was in the waiting for far too long. My wish is that when both films do well, Shahrukh,  Farhan, dad , myself and everyone will pop champagne and celebrate for each other.”
