Rakesh Roshan is all set to release the fourth installment of Krrish series i.e.,Krrish 4 on occasion of Christmas in 2018. With this he will have second clash with SRK. As Hrithik's Kaabil is clashing with Shahrukh's Raees on Republic Day 2017. Also Shahrukh has intention to release his next Bandhua in direction of Anand L. Rai on 2018's Christmas.
On clash of Bandhua and Krrish 4, Rakesh ji says, “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 is on the date of Kaabil stated, “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, “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.”
On asking of releasing his movie on a date announced by another actor-filmmaker first, 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's release on request of SRK, he denied, “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’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.”
