Raees is an upcoming Bollywood crime-thriller film directed by Rahul Dholakia and produced by Farhan Akhtar, Ritesh Sidhwani and Gauri Khan.
Set in 1980’s Gujarat, it shows the story of a cunning bootlegger, played by none other than Shahrukh Khan, whose business is highly challenged and eventually destroyed by a tough cop. The film criticizes the prohibition of alcohol, prostitution and illegal drugs in Gujarat.
Our very own Pakistani actress Mahira Khan has also been cast in the movie. This will mark the debut of the Pakistani actress in Bollywood. This will also be the first time for Shahrukh Khan and Farhan Akhtar to share the screen space.
Other things to be excited about include Shahrukh’s new look and Mahira romancing King Khan as the lead lady. It has also been said that the usually modest actor, was always in a foul mood on the sets while shooting for Raees. In an interview, SRK explained why he became almost unapproachable on the sets. He said that despite not being too much into method acting, where the actors get into the skin of the character by almost living like it, he did prepare himself to appear just as the ruthless as the don that he plays in the movie. To give an authentic feel to his role, SRK made sure that he always was in a bad mood while shooting.
