Kaabil‘s release has been moved forward to January 25, a day before ShahRukh Khan’s Raees releases. Kaabil, starring Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam, was earlier scheduled to release on January 26.
The film’s producer Rakesh Roshan issued a press release explaining that the decision was made after consulting with distributors. He said, “There have been instances in the past of movies being released mid-week especially if there is a big national holiday following it. My director Sanjay Gupta and I are in agreement on this. After hearing what our distributors have to say, we thought it makes perfect sense go with a January 25 release.”
The first show of the movie will start at 6 pm on January 25. Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees with Mahira Khan is set to release the next day on January 26.
Directed by Sanjay Gupta, with music by Rajesh Roshan, Kaabil has Hrithik and Yami playing a visually impaired couple.
