Raees vs Kaabil: My father is hurt because of Shah Rukh Khan, says Hrithik Roshan

The biggest clash of 2017 will be witnessed during the Republic Day weekend, when Kaabil and Raees will hit the theaters on the same day, but Hrithik Roshan feels it could have been avoided if the producers of the Shah Rukh Khan-starter had planned things in a better manner.

The actor, who plays role of a visually-impaired in the film, said his father, Rakesh Roshan, is hurt with the way things have turned out.

"My father plans his life very well. He was also very careful. Kaabil was about to get over in October. But he did not want to release it in November or December last year as the dates were already taken by someone else and it would not have been fair. He decided to go to January as he didn't want to put any other producer in distress.

"My father is careful and concerned for others so he also expects other to be the same way. He is a little hurt and upset. But he is graceful about it. You can't control the world you can only control your reaction and our reaction is very graceful so now let's see," Hrithik said in an interview here.

However Hrithik says that he has no hard feelings for people attached with Raees as he knows that the team is not doing it intentionally.

"People attached to Raees are not doing it intentionally. There is nothing like revenge. But if they had planned it better and had executed it better then this clash would not have happened."

Hrithik believes Raees, which was initially slated to clash with Sultan, had already been pushed a lot so the makers wanted to release it as soon as possible.

"I think Raees also didn't have any choice. The film is waiting for a release date for quite some time. It was supposed to release with Sultan but it got pushed. They are also in a problem. I understand that. My sadness is only that if the party had planned it a little better than this clash would not have happened," he said.

Producers generally avoid releasing two star-driven films together as they eat into each other's business.

The two films clash at the Box-Office on 25 January 2017.
