One film that has provided lot of fodder for desk top journos is the Shah Rukh Khan starrer, RAEES. First there was news that Farhan Akhtar was to co- star with SRK and later we came to know that it would be master actor, Nawazuddin Siddiqui. But the gossip mills didn’t stop at that, and one read somewhere that Nawaz had refused the film and the last straw was when we heard that RAEES had been shelved.

However, we recently read that a set for RAEES is being constructed and the shooting would commence soon.
As our patience was running thin, we decided to get the facts straight from Nawaz man-of-the -moment Siddiqui, firing one salvo after another at him.
Taking everything in his stride the usual calm and composed Nawaz told us, “Yes, it is true. I have signed RAEES with Shah Rukh Khan. What is also true is that I play a cop and Shah Rukh Khan, a gangster. And I am after him all the time. I will start shooting for the film from March. <i>Iske alawa main abhi aur kuch nahin bata sakta. ( I cannot disclose anything more at this stage) But as always the exclusive details will be revealed to you all (Glamsham/Bollywood Trade) as on previous occasions,” concludes the humble master actor.
