There was enough talk about the big clash between Kaabil and Raees. Both the films were set to release on January 26th. But now the makers of Kaabil have announced that the film will release on the evening of January 25, a day before it’s scheduled release.
As the makers of Kaabil and Raees gear up for a clash on January 25, 2017, Hrithik is hoping to celebrate the success of both the films with his father, producer of Kaabil and the co-producers of Raees. When the makers of Raees announced the release date of their film, Khan had claimed that they had never announced the release date of Raees until the trailer launch so there was no question of an intentional clash with Kaabil.
With a whopping 700 crore worldwide revenue, Amir Khan’s Dangal has set up new highs to achieve. This year, the highest expectations lie with Shahrukh Khan’s Mahira starrer Raees and Hritik Roshan’s movie Kabil. After what is speculated to have been an intense negotiation, Rakesh Roshan seems to have stepped back a tad bit. Now the movie Kabil is set to release one evening prior, giving a slam opportunity to Raees.
With two wildfire soundtracks released, Raees is undoubtedly the favorite in this race. But with the mammoth Bollywood industry, unpredictability is a package deal! The industry that can smack Amitabh Bacchan’s Pink to anonymity, might sweat King Khan as well!
