The release of Kaabil will clash on the same date as Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees. The producer of Raees, Ritesh Sidhwani, had met up with papa Roshan, asking him several times, hoping to convince him to change the release date.
A close source disclosed saying, “Co-producer Shah Rukh Khan is in Prague shooting for Imtiaz Ali’s next, Ritish has been trying his best to persuade Roshan Sr and has met him a few times. But the filmmaker is not budging from his date as his deals have been locked and his tie-ups are in place. The clash, it seems, is unavoidable.”There were earlier rumours that the filming of Kaabil was held up, yet actress Yami Gautam cleared the air by saying: “Not at all. It’s absolutely not true. In fact, the film’s shoot is going very well. We have just wrapped up a song shoot. Moreover, as I have always said, it’s amazing to work with Hrithik, especially when we are shooting a dance sequence with him. I can’t wait for all of you to watch it. I can write an entire thesis on what I’ve learnt from him. To sum it up, he is a dream co-actor to work with. When I came to know that I have to do a dance sequence with him, I was nervous. After all, he is Hrithik Roshan. The reason behind Hrithik being the best dancer is that he never takes his work for granted. In the entire schedule, I never heard him say ‘It’s easy or I can do it easily’. He is very energetic and always ready to learn. He has the ability of reinventing himself.
