Hrithik Roshan and Shahrukh Khan are set to clash at the box office on 26th January as Raees and Kaabil will release on the same date. The producers of both the films had been trying to avoid a clash. However, no one has backed out yet. Interestingly both the actors will clash once again on Diwali when promos of HR's Kaabil and SRK's Dear Zindagi will be released.
Reportedly, the trailer of Kaabil will be attached to Ajay Devgn’s Shivaay, which in itself is headed for a massively Diwali clash with Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. And the trailer of Gauri Shinde’s SRK and Alia Bhatt starrer Dear Zindagi will be adjoined to Karan’s film.
There are media reports of a rift between Shahrukh Khan and Roshans. A few days back Rakesh Roshan announced Krrish 4 releasing on Christmas 2018. That date was already booked by Shahrukh-Aanad's untitled film.
