RAEES has caught in a fresh controversy. According to reports a local political party from Gujarat has asked for a ban on the film.


Reports suggest that a political outfit has put banners in some parts in the state of Gujarat against SRK and the movie asking for a ban.

The move has got some support from other likeminded political outfit as well. The agitators are angry over the alleged glorification of a real life criminal in the film.

It was reported earlier that Raees Alam the character played by Shah Rukh Khan in the film is allegedly based on the life of Abdul Latif, a Gujarat based bootlegger-turned-politician.

The political outfit is also against the casting of Pakistani actress Mahira Khan in the film. It is reported that some protest were held outside a theatre in Gujarat’s Valsad district which was dispersed by the police.
