Shah Rukh Khan knows it well that how much it costs to have a box office clash, even with a rising star of Bollywood, so this time he is careful to avoid his ‘Raees’ clash with Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Kaabil’.
Up the latest, all of SRK’s efforts and diplomacy have gone into vein as Kaabil producer, father of Hrithik Roshan, is no mood to shift the date for his release.
Raees star recently visited Rakesh Roshan, and later took to Twitter to thank him. Many perceived this as a thanks to the Kaabil producer over changing the release date of his film.
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.

But according to the sources, Rakesh Roshan has told Bombay Times the very next day that his film will be hitting the screens on Republic Day 2017 as it is scheduled.

It will be relevant to mention her that at first Raees was scheduled to hit the screens on this Eid, but due to Salman Khan’s Sultan releasing on the very same date, later the date was shifted to 26th January, 2017.
Co-incidentally, Hrithik’s ‘Kaabil’ was also also releasing on 26th January, recognizing it as a big threat after its first teaser, SRK and team decided to avoid the clash with this film.
