Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India] | December 7, 2016
King Khan recently opened up about the hottest topic of Bollywood: the clash between 'Raees' and 'Kaabil'.
At the trailer launch of his upcoming film, Shah Rukh Khan was asked about the early release of the film, to which the actor replied, 'We had decided with our exhibitors and distributors a long time back, when we got to know that about the clash on January 26, that we will release the film a day before.'
'I think Hrithik's flick releases in evening shows while 'Raees' comes out with regular shows,' added the 51-year-old.
The 'Dear Zindagi' actor stated the makers were sure to announce the new release date on the day of trailer launch and also justified the decision of preponing the film saying, 'It is a logical decision as it is a holiday next day and we can have the advantage of people coming and watching the film.'
On a related note, Rakesh Roshan announced a few days back that he and his distributors have planned to release 'Kaabil' on January 25 instead of January 26, while today the news of preponement of 'Raees' spread like wildfire.
