SRK Reveals Raees Release Date
The movie directed by Maneesh Sharma received mixed response from the audience and the movie ended up as an average fare all over. Shah Rukh essayed two completely different roles in the movie which received wide response though the film failed to impress the audience. Aditya Chopra produced Fan on Yash Raj Films banner. SRK has been quite disappointed with the result of Fan.
He wrapped up the shoot of his upcoming movie titled Raees and the movie has been directed by Rahul Dholakia. The movie deals with the liquor mafia that happens in Gujarat and SRK will be seen as a mafia don in the film. The movie has been initially slated for a massive release all over during Eid this year, however the makers are in no mood to clash with Salman Khan’s latest release Sultan which will release for Eid.
Left with no release dates this year, the makers decide to come out with a comfortable release date and Raees will now hit the screens on January 26th next year. The makers released an official statement about the film’s release.
The statement reads: “It was not an easy decision to move the film. We understand that Raees is highly anticipated. However, a film of such magnitude requires the appropriate showcasing and therefore, we have decided to shift our release date to 26th January, 2017.” – Ritesh Sidhwani, Shah Rukh Khan and Farhan Akhtar.
