Shah Rukh Khan believes no one could have done justice to the character of Raees better than him, says Director Rahul Dholakia.
In an interview to a leading daily, Rahul Dholakia, the director of Raees has revealed that the movie will present Shah Rukh Khan in a never seen before avatar. The director further reveals that after the film narration, Baadshah was confident that no one could have played Raees better than him. Rahul said:
When I went to narrate the script, he was on his way to attend an awards function and could give me only 10 minutes. But by the time I reached the interval stage, we had sat for more than 45 minutes. SRK was so hooked to the story that he wanted to know the end. That’s when he told me he will be doing the film. He believed no one else could play Raees (his character in the film) better than him. Once he wears the pathani, surma and chashma, he transforms into Raees. In fact, whenever SRK was in his Raees avatar on set, people would get intimidated by him.
Raees is among the most awaited movies of 2017. With just a few days left for the release of the movie, the excitement of the fans is at the peak. Produced by Excel entertainment, Raees is slated for release on 25 Jan 2017. The movie will lock horns with Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil.
