The year 2017 has begun and the first thing it will witness is the mega clash of Bollywood films, ‘Raees’ and ‘Kaabil’! However, producers of both the films are quite cool about it and the way it looks there is no ‘rivalry’ kind of feelings between them. This is evident by ‘Kaabil’ director Sanjay Gupta’s recent statement about Raees.
“It’s the kind of film I used to make earlier. I loved the trailer of Raees and I’m looking forward to it. Rahul is an excellent director and a good friend. It will be interesting to see him directing Shah Rukh,” said Sanjay Gupta.
The director also spoke about why such clashes happens only in Bollywood and not in Hollywood or even Tollywood. He said,” In Hollywood, you won’t see two big films releasing on the same day. Even down south, the producers’ body is cohesive, so there are rarely in clashes. Unfortunately in B-Town we have four different bodies. So it is practically impossible for the industry to take a collective call.” (sic)
While concluding he expressed that he doesn’t want to disappoint the audience as well as the Roshans! He was quoted saying,” Both Rakeshji and Hrithik have shown immense faith in me and I don’t want to disappoint them. Working with a star like Hrithik comes with its own expectations. I hope we give the audience their money’s worth.” (sic)
Well, we would say, it’s good to see such calmness between the makers and directors of the two clashing films!
