Hrithik Roshan on Raees Kaabil clash It will be a loss of about Rs 100 crores for the industry:
Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil clashing with Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees has become the talking point in Bollywood. This is the biggest clash of 2017, thanks to which people can’t stop talking about it. However, Mr Roshan has come out in the open to speak about it and it is surprising. While earlier too he commented on the clash, this time he had a different take that coincided with his previous remarks on the much talked about clash. Hrithik’s reaction is opposed to his father’s strong notions about the clash.
“Hopefully both films will do well, but on the whole, it will be a loss of about Rs 100 crores for the industry as compared to both the films releasing individually. My father understands that and he is sad about that, and he thinks that it could have been managed in a better way, but we completely understand Raees was in the waiting for too long. My wish is that when both the films do well, Shah Rukh, I, dad, Farhan and everyone will pop champagne and celebrate for each other,” said Hrithik.
Earlier too, in an interview with Rajeev Masand, Mr Roshan had pointed out how Bollywood and Hollywood are different and why a clash so big won’t be experienced in the West. “In Hollywood, no two big films have ever clashed. Batman will never come with Superman, Lord of the Rings will not come with Harry Potter. So there they manage it really really well. It made me think that it is actually possible. I shouldn’t be okay with it, we should not be okay with it. We should manage our calendar because it is better for the industry. Both the films coming together will be a loss, if both the films are good, we would still earn about Rs 100 crores less in the industry compared to both the films released individually. So it’s okay. All I’m saying is that it’s unfortunate but it’s without blame,” stated the actor.
