Shahrukh Khan decided to take his bond
with Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani's
Excel Entertaiment a little more further after the huge success of
the Don franchise at the Indian as well as overseas Box
0ffice. Don 2 which was even more successful than the
original really did make SRK and Farhan join hands for yet another
new venture which has been reportedly tilted Raees.
Raees is said to be directed by Rahul Dholakia. The
film is reported to see both Shahrukh and Farhan sharing on screen
space for the first time. "Shooting for this film will begin from
mid next year. Shahrukh Khan will be playing a bootlegger and
Farhan a policeman. It is an interesting story," Dholakia told a
daily. Rumours are to be believed SRK is playing a Gujrati
character and Farhan will be the cop chasing SRK for being a
Shahrukh Khan previously worked in Don which was
directed by Farhan Akhtar and both received high appreciation for
there roles respectively. The film was titled hit in the Indian Box
Office and a blockbuster overseas. After seeing the duo share a
actor-director relationship, it sure would be interesting to see
them act with each other.
Raees is slated to go on floor by mid 2014 and will
probably hit the silver screens by Eid 2015.
