‘Raees’ may have taken the initial lead at the India box office but its actually ‘Kaabil’ that will be making history in Pakistan.
The Hrithik Roshan-Yami Gautam film has been confirmed to release first in Pakistan, the firs Indian film to do so post the ban on Indian films in the country. Confirming the news to DNA India, Rakesh Roshan excitedly said, “I got a call from one of my distributors in Pakistan, Satish Anand, who is currently in India, saying that they all liked Kaabil so much there that they got ONLY Kaabil cleared at the censors.”
He added, “It will be a solo release in Pakistan from tomorrow or day after. They wanted the message of Kaabil given by Hrithik and Yami to spread and reach everyone in Pakistan. It’s a very nice step and a historic one towards increasing the friendship between the two countries. I hope it grows bigger every day!”
While ‘Kaabil’ has been cleared for a release in Pakistan, its rival ‘Raees’ is yet to be certified. Apparently, Pakistani distributor Satish Anand praised ‘Kaabil’ by saying it was a “difficult subject intelligently executed.”
