Filmmaker Rahul Dholakia is finally happy that his big project Raees starring Shahrukh Khan is finally set to release after waiting for about one and a half years. The film stars Shah Rukh Khan in pure power packed action avatar. During a press meet Rahul Dholakia said, “I don’t use the word ‘great’ to describe my work, so I’ll simply say I’m happy with the way the film has shaped up. For me, the journey has always been more important than the end result and this one which has spanned almost five years for me has been fascinating.”
He stated that he was anxious and a little bit tensed after the wrap up of first schedule of the film as Shahrukh Khan went on to complete his two films Dilwale and Fan. Rahul Dholakia further added, “I might have been but when he resumed work after seven months, he was completely in sync from day one, not a word, move or mood out of character. Shah Rukh assures me picture achchi bani hai and from the makers to the actors and technicians retained their initial enthusiasm and conviction.”
As everyone knows, Raees is an important film for SRK as he is looking for an image break in the bollywood industry. Rahul finally said, “There’s nothing of SRK in Raees, not even his trademark gesture. In my film when he lifts his hand, it is to slap someone.” Raees going to release this Republic day clashing with Hrithi Roshan’s Kaabil.
