Mumbai: Rakesh Roshan announced that the Kaabil will release on Wednesday on January 25 rather than on Friday because of the clash between Kaabil and Raees.
The first show on Wednesday will begin at 6 pm. Rakesh said that the decision was taken keeping the Republic Day weekend in mind and that director Sanjay Gupta is also in favour of the release strategy.
He said, “There have been instances in the past of movies being released mid-week especially if there is a big National holiday following it. My director Sanjay Gupta and I are in agreement on this. After hearing what our distributors have to say, we thought it makes perfect sense go with a January 25 release.”
When Hrithik was asked about the now-avoided clash he said.”It’s not the ideal situation but it’s happening now and all we can do is communicate with each other and do the best we can.”
“Shah Rukh and I understand each other. Let’s see what happens then,” Hrithik added.
Kaabil stars Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam. Raees also stars Pakistani actress Mahira Khan.
