Shahrukh Khan's Raees teaser was damn impressive, never had we seen him in such a cool avatar of a gangster. The actor has been showered with praises from his Bollywood colleagues, from the moment the teaser was launched.
The film directed by Rahul Dholakia is being released on Eid of 2016, when it will clash big time with Salman Khan's Sultan. So next year Eid will see the biggest Box Office clash with Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan pitted against each other with classic movies.
Raees is produced by Farhan Akhtar, Ritesh Sidhwani and Gauri Khan under the banners of Excel Entertainment and Red Chillies Entertainment.
Bajrangi Bhaijaan Movie Review: Salman Khan's Finest Performance, Has Outdone Himself
The film is of Indian crime genre set in the 1980's, Gujarat. The story revolves around a bootlegger whose business is thwarted by a tough policeman.
The film also features Farhan Akhtar and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in pivotal roles. Debuting in Bollywood with such an awesome movie is Pakistani actress, Mahira Khan.
The shooting of the movie has been majorly taking place in Mumbai, though the story is based in Gujarat. If Raees is offering us a interesting gangster story, Sultan will offer us the tale of a wrestler. Difficult choice to make!
