“I will QUIT films if such unfair practices continue” – Rakesh Roshan

“I will QUIT films if such unfair practices continue” – Rakesh Roshan

25th January was one of the biggest Box office clashes Bollywood has faced. Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees and Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil were equals, until yesterday morning. The shows between and Raees were not distributed equally. Kaabil has got only 40-45 percent of shows as compared to Raees.

Rakesh Roshan was very upset about the matter. He said, “What has happened with my film is extremely unfair. When such clashes take place, the ball is always in the exhibitor’s court. They are the ones who can decide the fate of the films by being fair to both. When the entire world-UK, USA, Australia has divided the show equally, why couldn’t we do the same? It’s a shame! It’s very sad that they succumbed to pressure, that too for a film which is releasing in March. These people are powerful but they are using the power in the wrong direction.”

He also added that Kaabil’s collections at the box office will be low by saying, “I know Kaabil will register low collections on the first day and I am speaking while my shows are running in theatres, not after or before the success or failure of my film. This is totally uncalled for. There will definitely be a 20 percent difference between the collections of both films. Exhibitors shook hands with me for 50-50 & turned around this morning.”

He angrily said, “I will QUIT films if such unfair practices continue. I am here to take the industry forward and I have always done that through my films. Why are these so-called ‘big players’ not moving forward?”

Rakesh Roshan also spoke about the lack of unity among the exhibitors, “If all the exhibitors come together and say that they will not release the film then the producer of the film will bow down in front of them. The exhibitors don’t have to succumb to such pressures if they are united.”

We hope Rakesh Roshan’s disappointment doesn’t result in him walking out of Bollywood!
