Raees vs Kaabil

Shah rukh khan, Hrithik Roshan, Kaabil, Raees, srk, srk Raees Raees and Kaabil are two of the biggest releases of 2017, and are releasing on January 25.

Not a year goes by when Bollywood films do not face big box office clashes and the eventual controversies attached to it. While some publicly display friendly hugs with their competitors, others chose to take the lesser road travelled and open up inner discussions with the media. Director Rahul Dholakia’s action crime thriller Raees is one such film which is already set for a major face-off with Rakesh Roshan’s Kaabil. Rahul’s film features Shah Rukh Khan as Raees Alam who sells illegal liquor in one of the dry states of India, Gujarat. The film also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Pakistani actor Mahira Khan.

Only a maverick filmmaker like Rakesh Roshan can take the challenge of releasing his film alongside an SRK flick. His much awaited film stars son Hrithik Roshan. Kaabil is the story of a simpleton who is struck by a terrible tragedy. But nothing fails to stop him, not even the fact that he is blind. Both Kaabil and Raees are slated to release on January 25.
