Raees Movie Story/Plot
Raees official teaser is out showing Shah Rukh Khan playing the role of a bootlegger, Raees Khan in the slums of Ahmedabad in 1980’s. The script seems quite strong and with such heavy weight actors backing it up, the movie is bound to do exceptionally well in theatres. In the official poster of “Raees”, Shah Rukh Khan is seen in the traditional outfit with serious look depicting the role of an underworld mafia. The same get up was adopted by Ajay Devgan in “Once Upon A Time in Mumbai”.
Some new faces can also be seen in the movie alongside Shah Rukh Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Yes we are talking about the very talented and gorgeous Pakistani actress Mahira Khan who is making her Bollywood debut through this movie and will be seen as Aasiya. However, we are still unfamiliar with the actual roles of Mahira Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Two of Shah Rukh Khan’s movies will be releasing this year. His movie “Fan” will be launched prior to “Raees” in April. His last film “Dilwale” failed to deliver on box office as well as expected. So lets see whether King Khan will be able to redeem himself through these two upcoming movies.
