Shah Rukh Khan starrer Raees and Hrithik Roshan– Yami Gautam starrer Kaabil will be hitting the silver screens on January 25. Both the movies are highly anticipated ones due to their larger than life scripts and top notch A listed stars. Apart from this, what is making news is the clash that both will be facing despite Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik being happy buddies of Bollywood. Both rocked the Karan Johar film ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ back then and now both pitched against each other, is a major concern of their fans! There were a lot of speculations about the fallout in their friendship after the announcement of the release dates. As everybody almost started believing the rumors, here comes the truth from Hrithik Roshan himself!
In an recent interview to a leading daily, the Kaabil actor revealed his take upon what is being said about him and SRK in the town! The Greek God of Bollywood was asked this obvious question about the tiff and whether he was hurt or shocked after Baadshah announced the release date of Raees same as his film Kaabil. Upon which Hrithik said, ” No. I was not shocked. I thought that any good businessman would do the same thing. They are allowed to do that. I am not in their shoes. First of all, we would not have announced on someone else’s date, but that’s the way it is. They may have been in a genuine problem. ”
He also further justified King Khan and also appreciated him as a businessman. Bollywood is a bad world when it comes to money and Duggu definitely knows this well! Talking about it he shared, ” I have the understanding as a human being and as a businessman that what they are doing is the best that they could have done for their film. Friendship is in one place and business is at another. You have to understand that this is an industry and money matters.”
Now the question remains that whether they actually sorted out the issue of clash in person? To our surprise, yes, they have done that too. Infact, both of them tried their luck in not letting the films clash but it could not work! When asked whether he tried to call SRK and sort out things, Hrithik said, ” Yes, yes, even Shah Rukh has tried to not clash. He spoke to my dad. I sat and spoke with him about this and I guess he put his best effort out there and it was not possible… It won’t affect our friendship. On the contrary, this will lead to a better understanding of each other, which will lead to a better friendship, also.” (ALSO READ: Raees Vs Kaabil: Shocking!

Aww that was very sweet of Hrithik to take things in such a matured way! On getting the compliments of being gracious and positive, the handsome super-hero of Tinsel town instantly replied, ” There is no other better way to see it. What’s the other choice? I cannot be upset! They have a film on release and they have to do the best that they can, so once you empathise, you understand.” We are sure that after reading this all the Hrithik Roshan fans will go extra crazy for him!

In Raees, Shah Rukh Khan plays a bootlegger who runs a illicit liquor business. On the other hand, Hrithik and Yami play a blind couple in love who fall into uninvited difficult circumstances. Both the films really have a strong content and we hope that both films win the hearts of the audience.
