Raees shoot begins on March 28, targets Eid 2016 Release Date

Producer Ritesh Sidhwani has announced that Excel Entertainment’s upcoming film ‘Raees’ will go on floors on the 28th of March and that they are currently targeting the ‘Eid 2016’ release date for the Shah Rukh Khan starrer.

“The shoot will commence from March 28 in Mumbai. We plan to release it on Eid next year.” Sidhwani said.

Directed by Rahul Dholakia, Raees will have the brilliant Nawazuddin Siddiqui sharing screen-space with one of the biggest names in Indian Cinema.

Sources say, Shahrukh has given bulk dates to the film October onwards, after he completes shooting for ‘Dilwale’ – his ‘Christmas 2015′ film with Rohit Shetty.

Pakistani star Mahira Khan has been cast opposite SRK.

Not too long ago, there were also reports that Salman Khan, who intends to always have a film ready for his favourite Eid weekend, was planning to begin work on Yash Raj Films’ Sultan.



  • Many Salmaniacs were jumping after their bhai reportedly booked all the festive dates upto 2016/2017…Now they will claim that Bhai dosen’t require festiv dates…lol
    #Dead Man Walking.

  • But 2016 Eid Srk and Srkian can’t give any other star to release there movie. 2016 Eid Only for Srk And His Movie Raees. So salman or sultan better luck for 15th Aug 2016. 2016 Eid We Want only King Khan and Raees.

  • Yes definitely waiting for RAEES,should be a good take on gujarat liqour mafia.

    @indicine: Any update on FAN’s release date?

  • I m still confused that, which movie of srk is gonna release this year after #fan?or srk have only one release.

  • Srk is going to break his own record which will be set by Dilwale in christmas after breaking pk’s record. 2 All Time Blockbusters coming for The King!!!

  • raees should b both commercial and critical success fir

    something that bhai can never think of achieving even in his dreams

  • @ where first look of dharam sankat mein star cast is big three best actor of bollyood Nasruddin , pareshji , annu kapoor .

  • damn charming srk,damn talented nawaz,damn skilled crew.everything is damn ahead of routine movie.light years ahead of sallu’s irritating documentaries on his senses i mean non senses.a movie like raees comes only once in decade.lallu getout.make way for indian gamechanger.

  • how can he complete dilwale within such a small time??
    SRK took 1yr each to complete CE n HNY……. I think his dilwale will not be ready to release in Christmas. Lets hope for the best.

  • One thing no one can deny srk is a workhorse..he is really passionate towards his work…nw raees on eid ..bingo!!

  • It wud be awesome movie… My prediction : 8.8+ score on imdb…. Plz, dont even try to compare BO, 350 crore wud be cakewalk foh it. .


  • Lol indicine has written “diwale”instead of dilwale by dis way indicine already predicted future of the movie…diwale nikal ne wali hai….

  • Raees is a very important movie for SRK and Rahul Dholakia . For SRK because everyone knows since last 5 years apart from MNIK and Don 2 all his movies have been bad . This should be a content oriented, commercial and most importantly performance oriented movie for SRK . For Rahul Dholakia because his first movie was Parzania for which he got the National Award for Best Director . Raees will be his 2nd movie and 1st commercial movie . He has to prove that Parzania was not a fluke . Nawaazuddin is also becoming popular day by day . As for Eid, Since 2011 all SRK movies have been released on a Holiday and out of these only CE became an All Time Grosser and ATBB . It will be interesting to see a clash between SRK and Salman . Sultaan will be directed by Ali Abbas Zafar . Eid is the favorite date of Salman and he will not give it easily . 10 years before SRK would have easily won it but now Salman can give tough competition and that will makes this clash even more exciting and ruthless . Best Of Luck to the entire team of Raees !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Eid 2016 will never be ruined like it was in 2013….

    Expecting Eid 2016 to be as Eid 2015 will be this year or Eids of 2014, 2012, 2011, 2010 etc etc and that is Entertainment, Entertainment and more Entertainment…!

  • 2015: belongs to srk sir!!!!
    Dilwale highest grossing movie.
    2016: Belongs to srk and hrithik!!!
    Raees: highest grossing , mohenjo daro 2nd highest grossing ..
    East or west srk and hrithik are the best..
