Shahrukh Khan is gearing up for the release of his upcoming film Raees, Bollywood movie goers and shahrukh khan fans are excited to watch Shahrukh Khan in an full fledged action-packed role. Shahrukh Khan admitted recently that he enjoyed doing this film but he is no way close to his character of Raees in real life.
Shahrukh Khan is known as the King of Romance, but in this film he is playing the tuff guy role. he will be seen in the characyter of bootlegger in Gujarat. In his interview he recently said, “I wanted to be seen in a perfect action role onscreen. I always wanted to be an action hero. But it still hasn’t happened. Filmmakers still don’t offer me cool action films. Because of my repertoire, maybe, directors don’t consider me an option. But I am very macho at heart.”
He then added, “There are five big action set pieces in the film. We have an entire parkour sequence, we have a very sadak-chhaap fight which is how roadside gunda fight. That sounds funny, but it’s very intense. There’s an entire action sequence while the Laila song is playing which is quite interesting. It’s about a minute-and-a-half long. There’s another cool action scene with the bad guy. It’s more of a gun-wielding fight. There’s one during a rally, so it has a political fight as well. And then there’s obviously the fight during the climax. I got to do almost everything in the film. Each one has a flavour of its own. We tried to do is give every fight a different meaning, a different touch, so there’s a distinct kind of musical background in every fight, but it’s a fight at the end of it all,” he concluded.
Directed by Rahul Dholakia and produced by Excel Entertainment and Red Chillies Entertainment, Raees also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the supporting role and Mahira Khan plays female lead. The film releases on January 25, 2017.
