Actor Rakesh Roshan shared his plans for the fourth installment of film “Krrish”. The actor revealed that the film will release on Christmas 2018. It will clash with SRK’s film which is directed by director Anand L Rai. .
The face off films for the viewers between the Roshans and SRK will be Kaabil and Raees (which Shah Rukh Khan is producing with Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani). The films will hit the theatres on Republic Day 2017.
Rakesh Roshan said, "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. However, he's in no mood to shift Kaabil, as he states. I had announced the date for Kaabil earlier. If they are coming on the same date, then I can't do anything about it."
Rakesh asserted, "As far as Shah Rukh is concerned, he's like a younger brother to me. I gave him a break in King Uncle (1993), and then worked with him in Karan Arjun (1995) and Koyla (1997). God has given him everything in life, for his talent and ethics. Knowing him, I don't think he will do anything unethical. I don't know what they will eventually decide."
Emphasizing that it would be deceptive on his part to discharge his Krrish 4 out on the town declared by another on-screen character movie producer in the first place, he says, "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."
When asked if he would shift Kaabil from Republic Day if SRK make request, Roshan asserted,"I don't budge my release date. When Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai was releasing on January 14, 2000, Aamir Khan's Mela was coming on January 7, Shah Rukh Khan's Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani on January 21 and Anil Kapoor's Pukar on February 4. Some distributors suggested I move my film as Hrithik was a newcomer. They left the film as I didn't change my release date."
