RAEES is back in news and it's going for a makeover. And the reason is not its cross border Pakistani influence – actress Mahira Khan, it is something ‘sexy' that is rumored to be the delay for this action thriller film about a shrewd bootlegger in Gujarat which clashes with Hrithik Roshan's KAABIL in January 2017.RAEES MOVIE POSTER
SRKians hold your breath, the King of Romance is set to revisit his ‘dard–e-disco' moment for the film in which the actor who is known to publicize his 6 packs and 8 packs achievements (seen in promotions of his earlier films like OM SHANTI OM AND HAPPY NEW YEAR) is rumoured to rework his physic for a song which is likely to be used in movie's promotions. Currently SRK is busy with his prior commitments.
Though there is no official confirmation on this, but sources close to the unit had shared this information which indirectly confirms the role of Mahira Khan safe.
During the ban pak artiste wave and uncertainty surrounding the release of Karan Johar's AE DIL HAI MUSHKIL, a demand to replace Mahira Khan from the film gained momentum.
Earlier RAEES was expected to release with Salman khan's SULTAN last Eid but according to market buzz, the failure of FAN in which SRK has given his best as an actor in the role of Gaurav Chanana made the makers of RAEES play safe and release the film next year. But they didn't know that the Hrithik Roshan's father dearest Rakesh Roshan is also eyeing KAABIL for the 2017 republic day release slot.
However the makers of RAEES denied this speculation and their alleged request made to Roshans to shift the release of KAABIL and clarified that some work is remaining and the movie was not shifted from its earlier Eid release date due to the failure of FAN and Salman's Khans bigger star power then SRK as projected by some section of the media and market.
This speculated news of SRK to rework his physic for a song for RAEES and the reason for delay is at least a welcome break from the ongoing politics that has recently clouded Bollywood.
Hope the rumours comes true and SRK ups the notch again with something much drooling and sexier than earlier.
