This is for the first time that Shahrukh and Farhan will be sharing the screen space. Though they had worked together for the remake version of ‘Don’ and its sequel ‘Don 2’, where Farhan was involved in the project as a producer while SRK played the main lead but this time they will be acting together. ‘Raees’ will be produced under the banners of Excel Entertainment.
Superstar Shahrukh Khan will be playing a bootlegger and actor-turned-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar will be a cop in Rahul Dholakia’s next movie, ‘Raees’. Shahrukh said that he is very much keen to play baddie again.
“Shooting for this film will begin from mid next year. Shahrukh will be playing a bootlegger and Farhan a policeman. It is an interesting story,” Dholakia told without divulging any details. “We all have decided to release this film on Eid in 2015,” Rahul also said.
