Shahrukh Khan and Mahira Khan’s upcoming venture, Raees, was all set to release in the last quarter of 2016 until an official statement on twitter was released confirming rumors circulating on the internet that the action-drama will now release on the 26th of January 2017.
The film-makers of Raees apparently played it safe by delaying the film due to other slots reserved on the calendar this year for Salu Bhai’s Sultan releasing over Eid holidays and Aamir Khan’s Dangal over the Christmas holidays.
Mahira Khan has been greatly disappointed by this news, the actress was expecting a huge kick start in Bollywood. According to an inside source, “Mahira has been getting interesting offers in Bollywood, but she has signed a contract with the Raees makers that stops her from taking on any new work in Bollywood until the release of the film.”
Raees has become one of those movies that fans across the border are looking forward to but it seems like they have to wait longer. Mahira’s Bollywood debut has been an adventurous ride directed and spearheaded by actor Farhan Akhtar but it seems like her ultimate dream of starring alongside SRK is giving her tough time.
Raees is already being endorsed as a super hit blockbuster. The official trailer of the movie has crossed 4 million views.
