King Khan of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan is currently shooting in Ahmadabad for his upcoming crime-thriller Raees with his female lead of the film Pakistani actress Mahira Khan, who is making her Bollywood debut with this film. Some pictures have just arrived from the sets showing SRK and Mahira.
Shah Rukh has now been in Gujarat for a month or so, but Mahira has just arrived in the city and joined the cast and crew for the very first time. This Pakistani beauty is looking superb in this traditional red salwar kameez along with red dupatta on the head.
Shah Rukh, who is playing liquor mafia in the film, is seen in typical Pathani avatar with white kurta pajama and black headgear. His beard look with black goggles is itself telling about his grey shade character in the film.
Raees is directed by Rahul Dholakia, who had earlier directed National Award winning film Parzania (2005) and Lamhaa (2009). Raees is inspired by the true story of Gujarat based bootlegger popularly known as Miyan Bhai whose business is highly challenged. The film also criticizes the prohibition of alcohol, prostitution and drugs in Mahatma Gandhi’s land Gujarat.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui is also playing an important and pivotal role as a police officer who wants to stop Miyan Bhai and his illegal business.
The most important thing is that Raees is slated to release on this Eid 2016 and unfortunately another big film of Salman Khan starrer Sultan is also arriving on the same day. So it is a big question mark about how this collision would avoid because this might affect the business of both the films but both the productions house have refused to reschedule their respective films.
