If there is one clash that has grabbed immense eyeballs lately, then it is indeed between Hrithik Roshan's Kaabil and Shah Rukh Khan's Raees. The two films are all set to hit the screens on January 26, 2017. Both the stars are leaving no stone unturned in promoting their respective films.

While the makers of Raees will be releasing their new track Laila Main Laila featuring Sunny Leone tomorrow, the makers of Kaabil have unveiled the film's second trailer today and it has received a positive response too.
 
When the first trailer released, there were many who felt that it revealed too much. Ask Sanjay Gupta about it and they say, "It was an intentional thing. With the first trailer you want to tell people what the film is about. Everybody will take the decision based on the first trailer. You have to be honest and not mislead them. And it won't affect the audience perception. Everyone knows that the hero is blind and he is out there to take revenge. That is the USP of the film. We are not saying that this is a unique story that we haven't told before. It is how the film is made that makes the difference." 
 
Adds Hrithik, "It is important for the audience because they have lot of alternative choices. The trailer needs to make an impact and for that whatever needs to be done, is what we have put in the first trailer. There is a lot more in the film and that will surprise the audience."
 
Interestingly, Hrithik's blind act has won hearts and the audience is going gaga over his portrayal in the trailer. Quiz Hrithik if it was difficult to do the same and the actor admits, "Difficult or not, isn't the point. The point is, that it has to be done. Difficulty is not the question. There is a responsibility - social and to the film, and hence it had to be done nicely. It is not something that needs to be praised. It has to be mandatory and every actor should put in those efforts and put the logic and physics in place. That is our job."
 
Given that Kaabil is clashing with Raees, both the films are sure to get affected at the ticket window. Probe Sanjay Gupta on the clash and he says, "I know it may sound a little unbelievable but I have my blinkers on. The only thing on my horizon is Kaabil. With due respect to the other film, to me this film is everything. Kaabil is not a Bang Bang, Dhoom 2 or Krrish. It is not a big ticket film. It is a special film with a heart bigger than these films." 
 
"And it is not our job to see what somebody else is doing. We have to focus on what we have in our hand and leave the rest to the audience. It is unfortunate and shouldn't have happened. But having said that, it is not illegal or unethical to come on the same date. We don't own the date. And they are friends and I wish them the best," states Hrithik.
 
Hrithik and Yami's chemistry in the movie is also being praised widely. Ask Duggu his experience of working with the actress and he gushes, "It was enlightening and enriching. What she brought to the film, became the core of it. She is extremely talented and she has something that no one else has. She has this uncorrupted old world charm and it is part of her. That has made the film what it has become."

Hrithik is so grounded. Nice interview!

Honest interview..... straight from heart. .....I wish there are more such people like you. BTW... loved the second trailer of your movie.

LOL he is talking about an unimportant overacting role as if he deserve a nobel prize for inventing the wonder medicine but Hrithik you are only an actor (not even a good one) and the world makes its thing with or without your movie. Don´t give yourself so much importance.

Did you even read the interview? Spread your hatred elsewhere, moron!

Wish there was some medicine for Jilted stalkers LOL

I agree... because then the person who keeps posting comments about Kangana winning 3 National Awards (under totally different administrations) just for doing "easy and average roles" would finally STFU. Same goes for the person who keeps bringing up Arjun/Saif, who've won ONE National Award, in order to conclude: "Even these 'talentless' actors did it, so 'big deal.'" This person is delusional, so he can't honestly bring up other actors, LIKE KANGANA, who've won multiple (at least 3) National Awards: Amitabh Bachchan, Kamal Hassan, Shabana Azmi, Naseerudin Shah. Why? Because then, it's IMPOSSIBLE TO CONCLUDE: "Even these 'talentless' actors did it, so 'big deal.'"

Hahahaha ab tho confirmed hai yeh Kangu hi hai! Even now, she googles HR name every morning to stalk his articles! Hilarious!

Actually, I only came here after some Hrithik-fan came and cried on a Kangana-related post... saying "please visit recent Hrithik-posts." Newsflash: it was no change in scenery. In both places, Kangana, her fans, and even her SUSPECTED fans (who don't even mention Kangana) are routinely and viciously attacked. This has happened (on Kangana-related posts) for all of of 2016. So seriously, STFU.

Red Chillies makes every clash Ugly. Only HR can keep this clash Healthy. Nobody else. Not even Lier Farhan or Talkative Rakesh Roshan.

Love you, Duggu!

Is Hrithik trying to woo Farhan to join him on that KWK couch?...Maybe that's why Hrithik finally managed to push a half-truth out of his mouth, while still completely glossing over why the Roshans NEVER "owned" the date or even booked it first, in the first place: Ajay Devgan FIRST announced January 26, 2017 as HIS release date for his film, "Baadshaho!" Rakesh Roshan later chose the same date for "Kaabil!" Somehow, Hrithik still couldn't bring himself to state this blatantly obvious fact: SRK didn't do anything "unethical" by coming on the same date because that's EXACTLY what Rakesh Roshan did, too (even before SRK).

Wat a joke. Baadshaho was supposed to be released in Aug 2015, then Jan 2016, then Aug 2016 along with Rustom. As of now, they have just started the shooting and will be releasing only on Aug 2017!! Stop spreading negativity n lies!

It shud be Farhan who shud actually apologize to HR for clashing with him TWICE, lying openly to Media and then spreading rumors about Netflix suing Kaabil.

PV, POST IT!...If something is NOT "unethical," who cares if it's done once vs. twice? Also, considering how loudly (and long) they've been crying...perhaps the Roshans spread that Netflix rumor themselves, thinking that any publicity is good publicity: especially any similarity to a superhero/comic book story. Plus, the Roshans could do what you're doing now: try to make SRK look bad (again) by desperately pointing fingers at him and his Netflix deal.

It shud be Farhan who shud actually apologize to HR for clashing with him TWICE, lying openly to Media and then spreading rumors about Netflix suing Kaabil.

Raees is going to be the Biggest dud. Mark my words. No amount of fake hype can save it. Wat was there in the trailer? Cop trying to stop a over glorified goon. Have we not seen it already before? Just bcoz SRK wears Pathani suits n has a Pak actress doesnot mean it is something great.

Both films are different genres. Am going to Watch both.

Both films are different genres. Am going to Watch both.

This movie is just a renewed version of Aamir Khan's GHAJINI, there he had short term memory loss and here blindness. Next would be Thakkur without arms of Sholay.

Raees is also Once Upon A Time in Mumbai Dobara set in Gujarat. There is no story which is why they are using item song even in trailer

HR is doing such bad films lately.

i am a srk fan ad supporting Kaabil and i know many Hrithik fans who are in favor of Raees. There are only few black sheep in both fandom who are spreading negativity and hate. Media loves to spread lies and rumors so they get some spicy gossips and trps.

I admire Hrithik for the humane he is. Such a wonderful soul. Love his acting, good looks, dance and his persona

I'm hoping BOTH films are HUGE successes!

Hrithik is truly a gem of a person. love and respect him more.

arrogant SRK should learn something from Hrithik.

Why is SRK arrogant? He only praises every other person. SRK even moved his film so that a movie like Sultan could prosper. I wish both the films success and HR and SRK are good friends. Stop all this useless fights about box office and enjoy the movies.

Oh Shut Up!!! Sultan would have crushed Raees! SRK knows that. He's not stupid. In fact, I dare him to clash with Aamir or Salman. Fact is, Salman and Aamir in recent times have being box office gold!!!

Only people he can dare to clash with are Ajay and Hrithik.

Hrithik is a gem of a person. This media is making it like a war.

It takes guts to contradict your Headstrong father on public platform. But then, we saw that even during ur Simi Garewal interview after KNPH where you openly corrected your dad who got a bit carried away in his praise for you :) Stay as you are, Duggu. U are beautiful, inside n out. Love you!

U are too good, man. Even though you know that the other side played dirty ob the date issue n lied. Anyways, it's good that you made it clear.

Well said, Duggu! HR has always been more Rational than his father. Rakesh Roshan is too emotional n blunt,maybe bcOz he is old n is invloved aa a producer. I am going to watch both movies. Why shud there be a rule that only one shud be watched
