Shahrukh Khan and Pakistani Actress Mahira Khan Were in Morocco – Reason is Here
Only a month is left for Raees to release and the lead actors Shahrukh Khan and Mahira Khan were together outside of India. But why? For promoting Raees there? Well, the answer is here. Actually Shah Rukh Khan and Pakistani actress Mahira were in Morocco to shoot a couple of songs for Raees.
An insider informs, “It was only for a couple of days as the team didn’t want people in India to know that they have shot the film there.
It was a small team along with the two actors. They were to shoot a song in Abu Dhabi, but decided against it as too many people know Shah Rukh there. Now, only some patchwork is left in the film which they will manage without Mahira in Mumbai.”
Just few days back SRK felt his film Raees to be troubled by the presence of Pakistani actress Mahira Khan. So, Shah Rukh met Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray at his party residence in Mumbai along with the producer Ritesh Sidhwani. After the meeting, Raj Thackeray revealed to the press that Shah Rukh Khan has said to him clearly that the female lead of Raees Mahira Khan would not be promoting the film. So Raees film should be released without any controversies and boycotts.
We already know that MNS has raised several objections like no pakistani stars shouldnt be casting in indian films, otherwise the films should be boycotted. Even in the month October, huge cry was made against the release of Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil for featuring Pakistan actor Fawad Khan.
However, Raees is, reportedly, based on the life of criminal Abdul Latif and set on the 1980s Gujarat. Directed by Rahul Dholakia and produced by Red Chillies Entertainment and Excel Entertainment, Raees is all set to release on 25th January 2017 in a clash with Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil.
