Yes, finally the first most-awaited movie weekend of 2017 is here, and the #RaeesvsKaabil clash is not just that of release dates. From the first looks to the fight for screens and distributors, this heated burnout is getting deadlier with every passing day! Here are 6 facts you’d be startled to know about the #RaeesvsKaabil clash and get you even more excited about both the flicks!
The craze about #RaeesvsKabil started only on Dec 7, 2016 when finally the much-awaited Raees trailer was released
Yes, you heard me right. Kaabil’s trailer released in Oct 2016 announcing its release date months ahead. But with the SRK-Farhan-Riteish movie’s trailer out on Dec 7th, the race to the finish was on.

Raees has been delayed time and again to avoid date clashes, but obviously all in vain!
With the teaser released in July 2015, it was being promoted for a release on Eid 2016. But, for that, it would be clashing with Salman’s Sultan, hence it was delayed. After that, the Uri Attacks happened and Raees suffered a blow again, for having Pakistani beauty, Mahira Khan, as part of the cast. In order to avoid the same issues faced by Karan Johar for ADHM, it had to be rimmed again, Mahira’s role was reworked and thus, the release was postponed to 26th Jan, 2017.
Whereas, Kaabil was announced in Jan 2016, shot in 2016 and slated for a release in Jan 2017
Rakesh Roshan’s ambitious film about 2 blind people has been conceptualized only in Jan 2016 along with going on floors a month after, and completed in a matter of 77 days. Waiting for Raees has been quintessential compared to that for Kaabil, considering the buzz for Raees has been around for almost THREE YEARS!!

Both the music albums have the same mix – 1 Remix Item Number, 1 Romance track and few others
It’s ironical that the makers of both the films took the same route in composing their music albums. Old Bollywood tracks remixed again and displaying the lead actors in their rough characters! And complementing that with peppy dance tracks and soothing romance numbers … this just looks like the oldest formula for big releases.
Now that the screens have been divided between the two flicks, it’s going to be either Kaabil or Raees for single screen audiences. Ticketnew is where you can book seats exclusively for single screens, and get awesome offers too. Hurry!
This release date clash is SRK’s Third and Hrithik’s Second in the last few years!
Jab Tak Hai Jaan clashed with Son of Sardaar, Dilwale clashed with Bajirao Mastani and now, Raees is clashing with Kaabil. Well, SRK seems to be more experienced with date clashes than his peers. Kaabil’s date clash comes second after Bang Bang clashed with Haider!
Coming to the lead actors, Hrithik and SRK have high hopes from their 2017 releases
2016 was dismal for SRK as his much publicized Fan did not rake in as much as the anticipation around it was and Hrithik’s period film, Mohenjo Daro, bombed at the box-office. So both of them definitely have their fingers crossed for Raees and Kaabil.
Two movies of the same genre releasing just a few hours after, #RaeesvsKaabil is getting bigger and better. Who are you going to watch?
The advance bookings for both have been opened since last weekend and special screenings of the movie were also organized in which many celebs have said that this is Hrithik’s best performance till date. Now it’s time for us, the real audience to get a hang of this movie fever!
Meanwhile, this tweet, early on Wednesday morning, makes us wish this is a super double blast movie weekend!
