Rakesh Roshan's much-awaited film 'Kaabil' starring Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam was all set for its big clash with Shah Rukh Khan's 'Raees' but it seems like Rakesh is extremely confident of the content and has therefore decided to release the film a day prior, that is Wednesday, January 25 at 6 pm.
This move was allegedly requested by his distributors as a way to encash on the Republic Day (January 26) holiday.
When asked Rakesh Roshan about the same he said, "There have been instances in the past when movies were released mid-week especially if there is a big National holiday following it. My director Sanjay Gupta and I are in agreement on this. After hearing what our distributors have to say, we thought it makes perfect sense go with a January 25 release."

He also tweeted regarding the same, "Experience the warmth of a beautiful love story called #Kaabil on 25th Jan. #KaabilTeluguPoster@FilmKRAFTfilms."
