Whole of 2015 we read up and shared everything about the epic clash between Shah Rukh Khan‘s Raees and Salman Khan‘s Sultan on Eid 2016. Nothing could get bigger than that because both of them are humongous stars. They have an enviable fan following. We were busy trying to figure out how much each film would earn. And suddenly SRK pushed the release of Raees to January 26, 2017. That set the tune for yet another clash and this time Badshah is ready to take on Hrithik Roshan. Raees will now clash with Kaabil but it seems the last night meeting with Rakesh Roshan might turn the tide in SRK’s favour. The actor’s tweet also hints towards it.
During Eid celebrations at Mannat, SRK had revealed, “We have spoken to Hrithik and also Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar (producers of Raees). That was a month ago, but I guess now we can do some adjustments. Rakeshji (Kaabil producer Rakesh Roshan) and Ritesh and Farhan will be meeting again. We are trying to figure things out, so we don’t have a clash.” Two big films clashing affect everyone, that’s a given and guess the superstar is doing everything in his power to avert it. He met Hrithik and his father at their residence yesterday, the pictures of which we have shared with you. SRK and Roshan sr go back many years. Karan Arjun and Koyla had Rakesh Roshan directing the King Khan. And it seems he means a lot to SRK. He tweeted about the meeting saying, “Met friend/mentor/family after many a days.Mr. R.Roshan reminded me…it’s not important to do 2 much, it’s important to get 1 right. Thx sir.” It shows how much gratitude the actor feels for the filmmaker and it also hints at a possible consensus that can be reached between the two. It’s a hopeful message as well and makes us believe that the Roshans might think about deferring the release Kaabil.
But then there is director Sanjay Gupta to take into account who had previously announced on Twitter like a boss, “Dear All KAABIL releases on Jan 26, 2017. Absolutely no change in date.Hope this clears all unnecessary rumours. Warm regards.” LOUD AND CLEAR!
Met friend/mentor/family after many a days.Mr. R.Roshan reminded me…it’s not important to do 2 much, it’s important to get 1 right. Thx sir.
