When Rakesh Roshan officially announced the release date of Kites, it turned out to be the exact same day that Akshay Kumar’s Sajid Khan directed Housefull was planned for release.
Soon, the hot topic of discussion everywhere – media, trade and fans – was the clash between Hrithik Roshan and Akshay Kumar. While we thought there are now enough screens in India, for two biggies to release on the same day – which was probably one of the reasons the Roshan’s picked the release date in the first place – the makers of Housefull thought otherwise.
Housefull has been preponed to April and could now clash with the T20 Cricket World Cup.
It also remains to be seen if Rajneeti sticks on to its earlier confirmed release date (May 27th, a week after Kites) or will the makers of the Prakash Jha directed film postpone its release?
For now though, what’s 100% confirmed is the release date of Kites. Finally a Hrithik Roshan film after more than 26 months, Phew!
