Shah Rukh Khan in "Raees."Twitter

Here is some good news for Hrithik Roshan and Shah Rukh Khan's fans. It looks like Shah Rukh and Rakesh Roshan have finally found a way to avert the mega box office clash between "Raees" and "Kaabil," starring Hrithik. Rakesh and Shah Rukh reportedly discussed shifting the release date of "Kaabil" in a five-hour meeting on Monday night.

Shah Rukh and the co-producer of "Raees" Ritesh Sidhwani met Roshan Sr. at his Juhu residence and discussed the mega box office clash that would take place on Jan. 26 weekend. Soon after that, there were reports that the meeting between the makers of "Raees" and "Kaabil" on Monday night was not fruitful, but now sources close to Roshan Sr. have said that he has agreed to shift the release date of Hrithik-starrer.

"After initial discussions about avoiding a box office collision, Monday night's marathon meeting ended on a positive note. Neither party wanted their film to suffer. Kaabil's release is likely to be postponed and Raees will get a clear window," Mid-Day quoted a source as saying.

Last week, there were reports that Rakesh was not ready to change the release date of his film. Several media outlets even quoted Rakesh as saying that they locked Jan. 26 as the release date of "Kaabil" way before "Raees" was shifted and thus they would not postpone the release of their film.

"Kaabil" director Sanjay Gupta also confirmed the same and said that the Hrithik-Yami Gautam starrer would release on the scheduled date, i.e. Jan. 26.

"But Shah Rukh has finally managed to convince the Roshans," the source told the tabloid.
