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 bootlegger.
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.
