Raees trailer has already created history by crossing 10.5 million views in just 20 hours on Youtube.” Last week when Kaabil‘s producer Rakesh Roshan shifted his film’s release date to January 25 from January 26 after facing a clash with Shah Rukh Khan‘s most awaited film, Raees, the Raees team decided to prepone their dates too. Rakesh Roshan shifted the dates after seeing a clash with Raees.
Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees is set for a major clash with Rakesh Roshan’s Kaabil in January 2017. Rakesh has called the clash unethical, SRK has justified why Raees has been rescheduled from its original date.
Box office clashes are a thing in Bollywood now and Rakesh Roshan appears to think that Raees‘ date change is a deliberate attempt to confront his film.When Rakesh Roshan was asked about this action by Raees, “he said that he belongs to an old school of film making and would never release a film on a day when another filmmaker has already announced the film“. Rakesh Roshan termed the act as ‘UNETHICAL’.

At the launch event, Shah Rukh Khan said, “We had discussed this a long time ago with our team. Kaabil will release in theaters from 6 pm on wards whereas Raees will release since morning itself. This is a logical decision because the 26th is a holiday. We had decided that we would reveal the release date only at the launch of the trailer.”
