Interesting details about SRK’s ‘Raees’

Shah Rukh Khan’s forthcoming film ‘Raees’ is one of the most awaited flicks of next year. But, many are not aware of the fact that SRK wasn’t the first choice to play the lead role in the film.

The latest reports suggest that Irrfan Khan was the first choice for the role. A source close to the unit said that Rahul Dholakia initially planned to cast Irrfan Khan as the lead actor for the film but he was replaced by Shah Rukh when the director went to producer Ritesh Sidhwani with the project.

‘Raees’ is a story about a cruel and clever bootlegger, who finds him in trouble when a brave cop starts chasing him. Helmed by Rahul Dholakia, this film also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and debutante actress Mahira Khan in lead roles. Produced by Excel and Red Chillies Entertainment, this movie is scheduled to release in 2016.
