“Raees” Directed by National Award winning filmmaker Rahul Dholakia. Raees is all about the story of Alam (Shah Rukh Khan), a Gujarat-based rumrunner Don whose widely spread empire is brought down by a cop Ghulam Patel (Nawazuddin Siddiqui). Pakistani actor Mahira Khan makes her Bollywood debut with Raees in his Home Production, playing Shah Rukh Khan’s wife character.
Earlier, Shah Rukh Khan shared a small video message on YouTube, in which he announced that the trailer of Raees will be showcased in few selected theaters across India on 7th December and SRK will directly interact with the audiences sitting in the theater and Shah Rukh would also answer audience questions. Raees is said to be based on the cringe full life of a Gujarati Don Abdul Latif who was wanted by the Police for more than 40 murder cases in late 90’s. He got caught in Delhi in 1995, and he was shot dead by the police in Ahmedabad when he was trying to escape. So, the story has many twists and turns, the perfect entertainment package. A year and a half back when it was announced that in 2017 Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees will hit the theaters since then the SRK fans are eagerly waiting first for the trailer of the film and when the time is coming near day by day fans are waiting for the film to release. Earlier the announced releasing date of Raees was 26th January 2017, but the entire team of Raees has decided to change the releasing date of Raees, No wait ! they have not decided to postpone the date instead they are preponing the date i.e. from 26th January 2017 to 25th January 2017. Yes, now you do not have to wait till 26th January 2017 now the movie will hit the theaters on 25th January 2017 only. The new releasing date will be now clearly mentioned in the trailers and all this happened just a few days after Rakesh Roshan declared that he will be releasing his home production film Kaabil on January 25th, 2017. Both the films will now be released on the same date and it will be a great thing to watch out for that which film will do more business at the box office. While Raees will be releasing on Thursday morning, there are rumors that Kaabil will only have preview evening shows on Thursday. By the way, this is still not confirmed by the Kaabil team.

Earlier Rahul Dholakia had scheduled the release of the movie on the auspicious occasion of Eid 2016, alongside with Salman Khan’s Sultan but there were already few films of Shah Rukh Khan which was lined up before Raees like Dilwale and dear Zindagi which he had to finish before he complete the Raees project with Rahul Dholakia and of course, with the ban on Pakistani talent by the government has also created obstacles in the road of completion of Raees. Fortunately, the scenes with the Pakistani actress Mahira Khan was already and almost done before this ban comes to an existence because Rahul had signed Mahira Khan long ago and stuck to his original plan, said the Director Rahul Dholakia. Now the wait is going to be over when the film will hit the Silver screen on one day before India’s Republic Day next year in 2017.
