Box office clashes are becoming a norm these days. It seems Hrithik Roshan and Shah Rukh Khan are at loggerheads with each other. First, it was the clash between Kaabil and Raees, slated for January 2017. Then Rakesh Roshan announced the release date of Krrish 4 for Christmas 2018 clashing with Aanand Rai’s dwarf project starring Shahrukh.
On realising the clash however, the Roshans quickly moved their film from the proposed slot. Hrithik Roshan has also broken his silence saying, “My mom and dad have always taught me that doing the right thing is over and above any profit or loss. I guess Dad felt it wrong to usurp a date that another colleague has already announced.”
Interestingly, the SRK's Raees is slated to release the same date as Hrithik’s home production Kaabil, even though the Roshans made their release announcement long before. On asking the question Hrithik says, “I can’t judge other people’s ethics. I must travel my own path, guided by my values and allow others to travel theirs.”
Hrithik admits for the first time that bringing Raees and Kaabil together could damage both the films. “Both films will suffer a little. But both films can also do well, if the content is good. If it’s in your destiny to succeed, nobody can take it away from you. The same also holds good for failure,” he says.
