One thing that is constantly heating up the B-town air, is the clash between Raees and Kaabil. Few days back, we had talked with you about the release date of Kaabil shifted one day ahead of Raees. Now it has come that the makers of Raees have followed this move and have preponed their date to January 25.
On this Rakesh Roshan, has made,
“I knew that they will shift the date. But some people told me that nothing of that sort will happen. My instinct said that they will shift the date. But, it is ok. 4-5 shows will not make a difference.”
On being asked if it’s fair to do so, he said,
“I cannot comment on others. But, I wouldn’t have done such a thing. When I plan my release, I check all of it. My film was ready and I could have released it in November and December too. But, I checked the slate and saw that there were films in those months and January didn’t have any dates and hence, I decided to release it in Jan 2017. We are an industry and there is a business here where not just producers, but also other workers are attached. Exhibitors, distributors and others cannot be deprived of their livelihood.”
Well, you have a point, Mr. Rakesh!
