Shah Rukh Khan has taken a lead in avoiding a box office clash between his film 'Raees' and Hrithik Roshan's 'Kaabil' on January 26 next year.
'Kaabil' and 'Raees'
"We have spoken to Hrithik and Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar (producers of 'Raees'). We spoke to them a month back as they were just starting so we can do some adjustments.
"So, Rakeshji (Kaabil producer Rakesh Roshan) and Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar (producers of 'Raees') will be meeting again. We are figuring out so that we don't clash," Shah Rukh said here.
"Kaabil" is directed by Sanjay Gupta and it has Hrithik and Yami Gautam in lead. The film is produced by Rakesh Roshan.
Directed by Rahul Dholakia, "Raees" features Shah Rukh and Mahira Khan. It is produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani's Excel Entertainment.
Earlier "Raees" was going to release with Salman Khan's "Sultan" that released yesterday.
"I think a big film has its own level of release. It should release in 3,500-4,000 theatres. When two big films release, we don't get theatrical release we want (referring to box office clash)," the actor said.
"Till the time we don't have 8,000-10,000 theatres no two big films can come. We were working on 'Raees' and I got hurt (so 'Raees' got pushed). The film is ready but we are yet to shoot that last shot," he added.
