Kaabil confirmed to release on Republic Day clashing with Raees

We all know that Shahrukh Khan's Raees and Hrithik Roshan's Kaabil will clash at the box office next year. After the debacle of Mohenjo Daro, it was speculated that Kaabil will shift from 26th January to avoid the clash.

However, the makers of Kaabil have confirmed that they are no in mood of changing the release date and it will arrive as per scheduled. The director Sanjay Gupta also shared a poster of Kaabil and captioned it as "R E P U B L I C D A Y 2017."


A few weeks back, Shahrukh visited Hrithik’s house to meet his father, producer Rakesh Roshan, to discuss the clash and somehow resolve it. However, Rakesh Roshan refused to shift away from Republic Day.

Earlier, while interacting with the media during Eid, SRK said, “We have spoken to Hrithik and also Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar (producers of Raees). That was a month ago, but I guess now we can do some adjustments. Rakeshji (Kaabil producer Rakesh Roshan) and Ritesh and Farhan will be meeting again. We are trying to figure things out, so we don’t have a clash.”

It seems with nobody ready to budge, Shah Rukh and Hrithik are setting up for the biggest clash of 2017.

  1. It's not at all good for Industry. it's clash of Ego and not movies. Very pity thing.
    it's fault of Raees makers who averted clash with Sultan and again Insensibly chose Clash with Kaabil.

  2. I think RAEES must move to another date. That could be sensible because KAABIL was 1st announce release date.
    Seems like every makers want to enjoy the hike in prices of tickets on holidays. They are not interested in High number of Footfalls.

    1. Bhai, is baar RAEES jarur dekh aaiyo theater mein... agar yaha bakwaas karta raha aise hi to FAN aur DILWALE se bhi buri halat ho jayegi.

  3. It will be the biggest stupid decision from the makers of Kaabil..
    Bcz Raees have the potential to collect 200 to 250 cr even as a non festive solo release(only if word of mouth Positive).....even though Kaabil is looks like a entertaining good film.

  4. JOLLY LLB 2 is releasing on Feb 10.
    Now that is CONFIDENCE of Akki.
    The Non Holiday King.
    #Rustom 150 Crores.

  5. kaabil team had booked this date before raaes team.....raaes ne clash kiya hai na ki kaabil ne ..mojo film flop ho gayi iska matlab Yeh thode hi na hai ki film ko postponed kar de.......26 Jan belongs to only kaabil....nd due to low budget kaabil will succeed at the box office same Rustom ki tarah...

  6. Bolly please confirm this news SRK doing warrior in Aditya chopra magnum opus? next and Rohit shetty also sign SRK-KAT in remake of Theri?

  7. Only amir and salman are undisputed king of bollywood....no one can dare to clash with them....next yr also there will be clash of RAEES vKAABIL, The Ring Vs Crack, Aankhe vs Golmaal 4... but interesting thing now is that what Producer's of rees will do...

  8. Kaabil team kyun postponed karein? ...hit ar flop toh part hota hai actors ki life mein ....ar koi date bhi najar nhi aa rahi hai....good decision kaabil team....raaes has made a big mistake...eid was the best date for raaes...if it had released on eid then it would have been a big big grosser...but now they are struggling for a date...

    1. Rakesh Roshan + Hrithik Roshan always give a great movie. Kaho Na Pyaar Hai, Koi Mil Gya, Krrish all are good. aur upar SRK fans itni chindigiri pe utar aaye h ki SRK ki movie tak dekhne nahi jaa rahe ye log. KAABIL will be a blockbuster.

  9. @bollyarena, Bro kaabil team ki koi galti nhi hai...unhone jo date decide ki thi woh usi date par movie release kar rahe hai...simple hai....ar agar kaabil postponed hoti hai phir bhi koi solo date nhi milne waali...clash toh hona hi hai.....good decision by kaabil team...

    am SRK FAN...
    SRK made mistake he averted clash between Sultan and again unnecessarily shifted to Kabik date...this time SRK is wrong....

    my dear Bolly please suggest SRK sir to preponed his release on Christmas 2016,this is the only period we can have more holidays and room for 2 movies business....

    or second option let him clash with EID with TUBELIGHT.....its noting...fear off...

    good luck for both...as a fan i wish Raees should release alone but at the same time SRK is wrong...i wish Kabil with best of luck.

  11. kaabil budget is very small and raees budget is over 100 crore which means economics are in hrithik favour as of now.

    1. bhai SRK bheek maang raha hai Rakesh Roshan se clash avoid krne ke liye, naaki Hrithik gaya SRK ke paas. Content kitna weak hoga RAEES ka ye to SRK ke baar baar postpone krne se pata chal raha hai.

      1. god will punish u and ur family for supporting a criminal, who support yakub menon and kill people, animal on road

  12. @Dinesh Rustom not sccess because of its low budget, whole bollywood supported it tera sang yara become chatbuster trailler received well where everything against mohenjodaro. Kabil same revenge drama if fails hr no longer superstar sajay copy gupta ego hurt hritik

  13. I hope both the films loose big time :)
    But Raees should try to realease in December. There are plenty of holidays..

  14. Hum tu raees dakhanga srk ka fan jo ha or movie hamain dekhai nhe dati jitni bi clash kar la
