The box-office clash between Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil and Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees is inevitable. With just a week left for the two films to hit the screens, there are speculation about who will fair better at the ticket window.
However, Kaabil’s producer Rakesh Roshan says that there is no bad blood between the makers of the both the films for choosing the same date, in fact, Papa Roshan is of the opinion that both the films will do good business at the box office.
In a recent interview with bollywoodlife.com, when he was asked about if he had watched the trailer of Raees, he said, “Yes I have. I watch everything. It was very very impressive. And Shah Rukh Khan is looking dynamite in the film.”
Though Rakesh Roshan has admitted that there is no bad blood between SRK and him, he has also expressed his displeasure over the two films clashing at the box office. “Actually it is not right. Because if you see Hollywood also, the way they strategise, no two big films release together if you go back 10 years and see. You will never see Superman and Batman releasing together. And we have only 4-5 actors over here who are ruling the industry. There are so many weeks in the entire year, so why clash? By clashing you are eating into each other’s business,” he added.
Rakesh Roshan also predicted how much both the films might earn. “I am happy about one thing. We both together will do Rs. 300 crore. Aamir and Salman’s single films have earned Rs. 300 crore. Here two films together will earn Rs. 300 crore. But then both the films have the potential to individually earn Rs. 300 crore if they were not clashing with each other,” explains Roshan.
Raees and Kaabil will clash at the box office on January 25.
