Shahrukh Khan's Raees was announced as Eid release, set to clash with Salman Khan-starrer Sultan. But SRK backed out of that race and pushed the film to January, 2017, locking horns with Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil.
However, SRK appears to have taken matters into his own hands, to eliminate the clash. He recently paid a visit to Rakesh Roshan and the two chatted for a few hours.
Shah Rukh posted, "Met friend/mentor/family after many a days.Mr. R.Roshan reminded me…it’s not important to do 2 much, it’s important to get 1 right. Thx sir."
At an event held recently, Shah Rukh had 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.”
