Actor Hrithik Roshan has expressed immense happiness for his father at the success of their recently released film, Kaabil. Kaabil had been in the news for the last month for a serious tiff with Raees over the number of screens allotted to both films, nationwide.
Speaking on the success of the film, Hrithik said, “Kaabil getting 200 more screens in the second week is a sign from the universe that one must just focus on good work and leave the rest to God. This is a huge victory. I want to thank all the Kaabil fans for making this happen. It is unprecedented and I feel especially happy for my father who remains one of the few active and successful non-corporatised producers in our film industry. My gratitude to all the forces who made this happen.”
Kaabil, which revolves around a blind man’s revenge after his wife’s rape and suicide, has also been released in Pakistan, where, up until a few weeks ago, cinema owners had banned the screening of Bollywood films at their respective cinemas.
Hrithik was also extremely happy about the film receiving screen space across the border, and said that, “I am delighted that our neighbours will get to see Kaabil in cinemas all across. Kaabil has received an overwhelming response from India and I hope for the same love from the audience there.”
The romantic-thriller released on the same day as Shahrukh Khan’s Raees, however, it has managed to give tough competition to the film since the time of its release.
