First a poster and then the teaser. Thursday was a great day for Shah Rukh Khan fans as he took to Twitter to share a special surprise with his followers.
King Khan first tweeted not one but two posters of his film Raees which also marks the Bollywood debut of Pakistani superstar Mahira Khan:
The Bollywood megastar’s gangster look and promise that more was to follow left fans overjoyed:
And then came the teaser of the film. A one minute five seconds long video that introduces Shah Rukh in a never-seen-before avatar. Here, take a look:
Shah Rukh is playing a Gujrati don in Raees and has absolutely nailed the look. Unfortunately though, the teaser doesn’t reveal much about the plot of the film and neither the posters nor the teaser feature Mahira or Nawazuddin Siddiqui — the other two lead characters in the film. So their fans will have to wait a bit longer.
However, that didn’t stop Mahira from tweeting the link to the teaser:
Shah Rukh too was quick to respond:
And as expected, Shah Rukh’s fans and friends took Twitter by storm:
Raees is directed by Rahul Dholakia and is being produced by Shah Rukh’s Red Chillies entertainment and Farhan Akhtar’s Excel Entertainment. The first shooting schedule has been completed while the second leg of the shoot will take place towards the end of this year. The film will hit cinemas on Eid 2016 alongside Salman Khan’s equally-hyped movie, Sultan.
