Rahul Dholakia’s long-awaited crime drama Raees is looking to bring that SRK back. According to media reports, the film charts the rise of the titular character, a formidable bootlegging kingpin in Gujarat. The project was in some trouble this year after Mustaq Ahmad, son of rumoured Dawood Ibrahim associate Abdul Latif, on whom SRK’s role is loosely based, sued the producers for defamation.
The trailer features fiery dialogues from a guyliner-rocking SRK about the supremacy of dhanda over everything else. How very Walter White/Heisenberg of him! Nawazuddin Siddiqui stars as the lawman in hot pursuit of Raees.
While Siddiqui and Khan battle on film, in theatres, Raees will face off against Hrithik Roshan-starrer Kaabil on January 25. May the best superstar win!
