‘Raees’ is the most-awaited movie of Shahrukh Khan this year. A few months earlier, ‘Dear Zindagi’ was released and did superb business in the box-office. Now all eyes are set on ‘Raees’.
Raees is a Bollywood action thriller film directed by Rahul Dholakia. It is produced by Ritesh Sidhwani, Farhan Akhtar and Gauri khan under the banners of Excel Entertainment and Red Chillies Entertainment.
The story of the movie is set in 1980s Gujarat and revolves around the character Raees Khan – liquor baron. Raees Khan believes that no occupation is small and no religion is above his occupation. In this movie, you will see his journey from a bootlegger to a politician. The film is shot in Mumbai, Bhuj, Ahmedabad and Gujarat. Recently, it was in the news that the Raees team had received a legal notice from alleged gangster Mustak, son of Abdul Latif, to have made a movie on his father’s life.

Like Fan, even in this movie, you will see Shahrukh Khan as an antagonist (well not exactly maybe), in the negative shade playing the role Raees Khan, a gangster.
Though it is not new for the audience, as he has played such roles in many movies earlier (Darr, Anjaam, Baazigar, Don) as well, but most would agree that SRK totally nails a bad ass villain!
Except Shahrukh Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Mahira Khan are in main roles.
Nawazuddin Siddique is playing the role of a cop named Ghulam Patel whereas Mahira Khan is in the role of Aasiya Khan as Raees Khan’s wife. Surprisingly, Sunny Leone has also bagged an item song ‘Laila’ in the movie.
Movie trailer of Raees has been released more than a month before release date. You can get a fair idea of what the movie is about – Raees bhai against a determined cop – full of action, drama, and romance.
Poster and Teaser Trailer
The Poster and teaser trailer of the movie was released on the occasion of Eid. The poster and teaser trailer are very much appreciated by the audience. In the poster, Shahrukh Khan is spotted carrying bearded and spectacled look with an intense expression on the face.

The teaser trailer of the movie does not give any idea of the plot. There is no scene of Mahira Khan or Nawazuddin Siddique in the trailer. You will only get to see Shahrukh and bottles all around.
As Shahrukh is a soul of the movie. People are appreciating it and expecting a good movie.
Reasons to Watch Raees
1. The first and most important reason to watch Raees is Shahrukh Khan. The star actor is looking amazing in this Raees Khan avatar.
2. Pakistani actress Mahira Khan is certainly another reason to watch the movie. She is Glamorous with a capital G!

3. The talented actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui will be seen as cop first time in his career. It is always a treat to watch him.
4. Shahrukh Khan will be seen dancing with Sunny Leone. [This could be a lame reason, but trust me, you will regret it later if you miss watching King SRK matching steps with our beloved Sunny Leone!]
5. You wouldn’t want to miss the biggest blockbuster of the year.

Earlier, Raees was set to release on Eid this year but the makers have postponed it. Now it is scheduled to hit the screens on Republic Day 2017. It will clash with Hrithik Roshan’s movie ‘Kaabil’ now. Let’s see which movie comes out with flying color.
We wish both the movies good luck!
