Kaabil Release Date changed

The release of Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil has been preponed by a day. The film will have ‘preview shows’ 6PM onwards on 25th January 2017, a move that sends a clear message that the Roshans are confident of their film.

It’s a good decision because the following day is a holiday for Republic Day and multiplex business does tend to peak a day before a big holiday (in normal circumstances, night shows on Saturday have very high occupancy because Sunday is a holiday).

However, it’s a move that could backfire too. If the content of ‘Kaabil’ isn’t upto the mark, ‘Raees’ will have a big advantage on Friday.

Rakesh Roshan took to Twitter to release the Telugu poster of the film and also announced the new release date.

“Experience the warmth of a beautiful love story called #Kaabil on 25th Jan” he tweeted.

Will the makers of Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees also release their film on 25th January or will they stick to the Republic Day release?



  • Mark my words #Raees comes 20 Jan instead 26 Jan.. They are too smart
    If Raees on 26 n Kaabil on 25 & If Kaabil not accepted then no one can stop Raees.. Any n how condition Raess cross 100cr

  • Why are people calling rakesh roshans decision masterstroke has he forgotten who’s directing this movie!!! Kaabil looks dull don’t know why hr fanz giving it the thumbs up!! MD part 2

  • Even if the Roshans are confident about their product, it doesn’t necessarily mean the film might be good. I mean, many films in tha past had preview shows, like Rocky Handsome, Tees Maar Khan, Kambakkht Ishq… and we know how bad they were.

  • Kal tak toh prepone ka baat bhi nahi hua thaa.abhi insecure hoke preview bhi try Kar rahe Hain?????


    Hrithik fans are still barking whenever almost ALL KING KHAN FANS are saying good things about kaabil.

    But this move is similar what koyla devgan did with Shivaay by showing the preview after gone insecure.

    roshans,ab tumhe RAEES se khud RAEES BHAI hi bacha sakte hain.

    and I want this clash must have to be done.why because

    THE LION OF BOLLYWOOD IS HUNGRY FOR BLOOD in clash after DILWALE VS bm clash.I’M sure after this,lallu aka hit-n-run bhagoda will be HIS NEXT TARGET.

    CHRISTMAS 2018 ALREADY CONQUERED BY MEGASTAR.NOW EID SOON WILL BE CONQUERED.beta lallu,TERA BAAP aa Chuka Hain.Salim Khan Naam change karde aur uska Naam aajse KING SRK rakhde.

    HE gave you EID bheek in return HE’LL kick you out of Bollywood and will finish your career.BECAUSE WHENEVER HE STRIKES,HE will completely destroyed and tear aparts his opponents.beware THE TRUE MEGASTAR OF INDIAN CINEMA IS BACK.

  • One more thing to dear lallutards,I know you’ll all bark and will support kaabil fully.because your star’s BAAP is competing against it.but remember after REPUBLIC DAY,you’ll be seriously threatened of your lallu’s stardom because AGAIN HEAR THE VOICE OF MIYANBHAI.

  • Before the Raees Trailer Release Date Announce My Six Sense Said That Raees team will release Raees on 20th or 24th January 2017.

    And Personally I want to Raees release on 20th January 2017.

    Even Sunday 22nd January is the Best Date for Raees.
    If Raees release on 22nd than it will get 4 days free run.
    And In 4 days Raees will collect 110 cr.

  • News of raees trailer coming has made rohan to prephone d release. .. I wonder what the impact raees trailer will make.. and what about the superstition of roshan? It’s again like diwali.. clash of egos ..

  • @Just Ketch
    Raees Team is cool about clash ?
    Where are they ? Have they started promotion ? Have they officially announced 26th jan as release date ( poster ) ?
    A big no. Clash has SRK . It can even get ugglier when they will start promoting Raees as history tells so . ( SRK said I will destroy them during OSO- Sawwariya clash refering to Sanjay Lella Bhansali ) nd every1 of us what he dis to Ekta Kappor ( During Chennai express -Once upon a time in mumbai 2 clash )
    Wait nd Watch . It will get dirtier in coming days

  • Whatever u do Taklu !Neither u Nor ur hi-tech chinese calculator will save the a$$ of ur Nakaabil son & his Nakaabil movie & get ready to be f**ked by RAESS.
    Only Raess this republic day 2017
    #luv 2
    #Buzz off Hrithikians

  • Baniye ka dimaag miyaa Bhai ki daring … Raees ko rakesh kyaa uskaa baap bhi nai ROK saktaa hai … Salmans fans .. As I said before they are considered as brainless.. So I can’t expect a sensible comment from you .. But still want to clarify .. Aditya chopra producer of kaabil has requested srk to postpone raees … And another reason is still the movie dint got completed at the schedule ciz of srks injury … I don’t think u got this coz for understanding u must have brains … And salman fans have super shortage of that ..

  • One correction
    Rakeshji directed srk in Koyla not trimurti, that too was a record opener but failed in long run

  • So what about so called ethics of sir roshan he said earlier that he is not going to change his date due to his superstition.

  • It wont serve any purpose
    If raees is a bad movie than obviously kaabil will earn more but if raees is even average than kaabil
    Wont stand a chance against raees
    And clash vl be like ce and ouatimd
    To win clash kaabil need to exceptionally better than raees jst like bm in dilwale vs bm clash
    Buzz for raees is jst like chennai express
    I like hritik roshan and want both movies perform good

  • I dont understand double standard of some people here once they will say srk fee should be included in budget of dear zindagi even though he is producer of movie and will share profit while on other side they say kaabil budget is less although fee of hritik roshan and rakesh roshan is not included because they will share profit
    On one side they want to add fee of actor but on other side they wont

  • I don’t think it will effect raees as much but if it doesn’t work then it boost raees collections big time. Bt definitely this clash will not be beneficial for industry.
