Not only the controversies related to Raees, but the story, Shah Rukh Khan’s and Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s act and Director Rahul Dholkia’s Credibility will bring more viewers to cinema hall. Sunny Leone’s Laila Mai Laila is the icing on the cake.
Raees, the upcoming Shah Rukh Khan film was already in new for its story based on Abdul Latif’s life. Latif’s son has already filed a case against the makers of the movie claiming the misrepresentation of his father’s life. Raees being produced by Gauri Khan, Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar under the banners of Red Chillies Entertainment and Excel Entertainment have Shah Rukh Khan and Mahira Khan in leading roles.
The other issue related to Raees was regarding casting Mahira Khan, as Pakistani actress with the movie. After the Uri Attack there was a ban on Pakistani Artist for working in India. Because of threats from Shiv Sena, it was being considered that Mahira Khan will be replaced by some other actress with the film. The film got completed with Mahira Khan but she was not allowed to promote the film in India. Mahira Khan is one of the most popular and highest paid actress in Pakistan.
At last Raees had a fight for the releasing date as well with “Kaabil” starring Hrithik Roshan. Raees was supposed to get released on the occasion of EID 2016, but as Salman Khan Starrer Sultan was slated on release on EID, it got postponed for 26th January 2017. Here again when it clashed with Kaabil, the release get preponed to 25th January 2017.
Raees, directed by the National Award Winner Director Rahul Dholakia is expected to be a treat to watch considering his previous outstanding film Parzania for which he got the national award. Nawazuddin Siddiqui, another national award winner artist, playing the cop running after “Miyan Bhai”, the character being played by Shah Rukh Khan is also being talked a lot.
The icing on the cake is the remixed version of Qurbani song “Laila Mai Laila”. The song has been picturised on none other than Sunny Leone. The music of the film has been composed by Ram Sampath.
