Indian box office is going to witness a major showdown this month as two of the much awaited movies will be hitting the screens together.
We are talking about Hrithik Roshan's 'Kaabil' and Shah Rukh Khan's 'Raees' which are releasing on January 25.
A lot has been said and written about this big clash and it is being speculated that it is going to be a tought time for both the actors.
But looks like Hrithik is quite unfazed with the speculations and is confident that this clash won't affect his friendship with SRK.
"Business should be on one side and friendship on the other side. Raees and Kaabil can clash but the friendship shouldn't clash. So we have to have that understanding," Hrithik said in an interview.
"They have to do the best for their film and we have to do what is best for our film. And the friendship stays," he said. The 'Jodha Akbar' actor said Khan and he spoke to each other after it became clear that their films will release on the same date.
Asked why the clash could not be avoided, the 42-year-old actor said, "They couldn't find a better date. It's not illegal."
The Sanjay Gupta-directed 'Kaabil' is the story of two blind lovers and a tragedy followed by revenge. The Rahul Dholakia-helmed "Raees" is about a bootlegger, whose business is challenged and eventually thwarted by a tough cop, played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
Hrithik has seen the trailer of 'Raees' and he thinks it is good. To a query whether he thinks 'Kaabil' has an edge over 'Raees', Hrithik said, "No, I don't think either of the films need to have an edge over the other. Both films are to be judged by audience, I hope both will be loved."
However, Hrithik believes due to the clash 'numbers (box office collection) will be divided.' Asked if this doesn't bother him, he said, "It's not in my control so how can it bother me."
