'I Had Announced The Date For Kaabil Earlier': Rakesh Roshan on his Clash With Shah Rukh Khan
Roshan Sr. does some straight talking
Rakesh Roshan is willing to shift the release date of Krrish 4, which was clashing with Shah Rukh Khan's movie with Aanand L Rai, according to a report in The Deccan Chronicle.
Last week, Roshan Sr. had announced that he is developing the next installment of the Krrish franchise, starring his son Hrithik Roshan, and would release it over the Christmas 2018 weekend that was already booked by SRK.
"If Shah Rukh is releasing his film on that day, I will shift. It is unethical for me to come on the date he has already announced for his movie," Roshan said in a statement.
"We're here to make films, not create controversies. There is still time for Krrish 4. If Shah Rukh has announced it and is coming on that date, then I won't release my film on the same date," he said.
But he added that he won’t be shifting the release date of Kaabil, which will hit the screens with SRK's Raaes on January 26 next year.
"I had announced the date for Kaabil earlier. If they are coming on the same date, then I can't do anything about it," he added.
However, the director added that this doesn’t mean that there is any animosity between him and SRK.
He said, "As far as Shah Rukh is concerned, he is like a younger brother. I gave him a break in King Uncle and then worked with him in Karan Arjun and Koyla. Knowing him, I don't think he will do anything unethical. I don't know what they will eventually decide.
