SRK should not release Raees on 26 January: Sanjay Gupta

Sanjay Gupta is set for the biggest films of his career, Kaabil, starring Hrithik Roshan. The film will be releasing on Republic Day 2017 and is headed for a big clash with Shahrukh Khan starrer Raees.

While Rakesh Roshan, who's producing Kaabil, had announced the date first, the SRK starrer was pushed over by six months, to avoid clash with Salman Khan's Sultan. But ironically it resulted into another clash.

Sanjay Gupta talked about the clash in a recent interview. "In all fairness, Rakeshji did announce the release date first. SRK is a man of principle, a man of his word, he is a Pathan. I can't fathom SRK stepping on someone's toes. I don't know if the films will come on the same day or not but I definitely think they shouldn't. If someone else had announced a film before him, there's no way in hell that Rakeshji would release his film on the same date. That is the respect we need to accord one another."

"Hrithik is 10 years younger than Shah Rukh. So I don't see this as a competition. Shah Rukh's competition are Salman and Aamir. Both the films won't do more than a Rs 150-crore in a week because we have a Rs 300 crore box office window at best. When Salman releases a film solo, he gets Rs 300 crore.

"Shah Rukh should be looking at getting Rs 300 crore for his film and I'm sure he is looking at that possibility. I don't understand why he would restrict the business of his own film. This clash is also going to be detrimental to them."

A few months back Shahrukh Khan met with Rakesh Roshan and requested him to postpone Kaabil. However, Rakesh politely refused saying that his film was announced first.
