The wait is over. Well not entirely. But fans of Shah Rukh Khan got an unexpected treat on Thursday when King Khan tweeted the poster of his highly anticipated film Raees.
Here take a look:

Besides confirming the release date (Eid 2016), the poster shows Shah Rukh in a different (read: badass) avatar. The line Baniye ka dimagh aur Miyanbhai ki daring in particular is interesting. Shah Rukh is apparently playing a Gujrati don in the film and has absolutely nailed the look.
Sadly though the look of the other lead character in the film, our very own Mahira Khan, is still be kept under wraps. But since Shah Rukh mentioned in his tweet that there is more to follow and with reports that the teaser of the film will be released later today (Thursday), fans are overjoyed:
SRK in and as RAEES, the line has raised the bar. https://t.co/5rsdEVUb5f— Khanjan Gadhvi (@Nt_dt_Bandwagon) July 16, 2015
