At a special screening of “Kaabil” held here on Monday, Rakesh Roshan was asked whether he will be watching “Raees” as it is releasing on the same day. But he said: “No, I will watch ‘Kaabil’ once again.”
Hrithik had recently said in an interview that his father was hurt over the clash of “Raees” and “Kaabil”.
A romantic thriller, “Kaabil” features Hrithik and actress Yami Gautam playing a visually impaired couple.
Talking about his son’s performance, he said: “Hrithik has given a wonderful performance. He has set a path for all the new actors to follow him, to see as an actor how good he is. I am proud of him not because he is my son, but (because) he is a fine actor.”
“I loved the film and Hrithik’s performance,” said Sonam, while Anil said: “The film will have a very good run at the box office.”
Writer Javed Akhtar found “Kaabil” — directed by Sanjay Gupta — an “outstanding” and “trendsetter” film.
