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.



  • So our bhai is in need of hit …
    2015 our bhai’ career termination!!!!
    25 years fake acting making stupid south remakes he will never step back in bollywood again after bb and prd ….
    Hahaha sorry bhay! !!!!

  • So raees cn repeat d success of ce… woww so excited…n it seems dat haters r in ultimate tension dats y deir comments r more in no. Than srk fans…

  • Content Superior Raees is already being billed as a classic but the same was being said of Content Rich Billu Fan which then run into trouble when laal mirchis vfx team were unable to make king look 17yrs of age… Hope team Raees dont run into similar problems during dubbing when king uses a punjabi accent as opposed to gujarati….

  • Problem with all of kings content rich films is that hes always rushing through them in order to start work on masala films where his over the top overacting comes to the fore…!

    Hes no perfectionist like Aamir just a perFaketionist self proclaiming global king of overacting…!

  • So srk has 3 opportunities to beat the aamir’s record before aamir next movie…or otherwise we have to tolerate srk fans famous line “300 CR STORM IS COMING” in next year also….

  • people should see the history before commenting nonsensely.
    ramjaane vs akele hum akele tum – srk vs aamir – srk won.
    don vs janeman – srk vs salman+akki – srk won.
    oso vs sawariya – srk vs ranbir – srk won.
    jthj vs sos – srk vs ajay – srk won.
    still foolish comments are seen like – srk will run away etcetc.
    intelligent people will understand from above 4 lines.

    meanwhile , rohit’s next on this christmas , raees on next eid..FAN perhaps post IPL next year or bkra eid this year..
    bring it on.
    back to back successes are coming.
    consistency nd hit ratio will keep on increasing with each release nd will go beyond the limit of our bhai.

    btw good to see that bahut lambe arse se bekar bethe huve mere pyare srk haters sorry they are blind srk lovers – unko ku6 kaam to mila jo yaha aake comments kar ske.lloll.

  • Raess n sultan both will be flop, crapyy films of khans. Brothers all the way to be the highest grosser of 2015 and Airlft of 2016. Make way for the boss.

  • Ye sab to theek h, but Pankha kab release hoga, I mean fan which shooting started earlier but others films get locked on festive without going on floor.Don 3 is coming.

  • On a serious note if Sultan gonna release on next Eid than Raees won’t, I think Raees wouldn’t be targeted to universal audience and Sultan is looking a vast audience appealing title as well as film on paper.So Raees won’t clash with Sultan if Salman eying on Eid 2016,but if Sultan got postponed than Raees will definitely come on that date.

  • Ha ha ha ha ha…..no one dare to release their movies with bhai!!!!!where is power if salman?theybasked US ask YOUR KING to release with salman on EID.now sallu fans kardi tumhari khwaishein poori.after salman decided not to release on EID,KING KHAN secretly changed HIS release date of CE to EID.also he fall near jitoo and ekta/akki blah blah ….. Made something stories like that,ROFL.

    Now what happened?FUSSSSSS……!!!!!!!now where is bhai+ekta+akki+jitoo add some more side actors ajay+amir and produce a film with YRF/DP with a title name sultan/devil whatever.but can you release that movie on EID.because you’re facing THE KING OF BOLLYWOOD.itna to jhoond mein aana banta hain na?last time our bhai with akki came in DEEWALI and did a clash with KING KHAN aad got a tight slap that he remembered till now.

    What I said earlier MY KING did that exactly.HE is the ONE MAN ARMY.now sallu don’t change your release date,I want a clash to see how many fan followings in India and wants to see who will save your movie against KING KHAN.

  • Some people say Commercial and critically acclaimed performance movies is a dream 4 Salman khan. Why ppl just talk trash without going to their drawing board???
    TERE NAAM …considered SALMAN BEST MOVIE WITH A CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED PERFORMANCE!! …commercial wise?? 3rd highest grosser for 2003!!…nominated for 24 awards winning 7 and had 8 Filmfare nomination… So in his dreams why?? He did it in REALITY So why needs a dream @arjun kapoor??

  • @Srk…. Ram janne vs akele him akele tum…. U sure Ram Jane was d winner?? Am not arguing just wanna b sure n know who to believe…
    Aspa Imdb rating…. ramjane 5.3 vs AHAT ..7.1…
    I actually thought AHAT was just an averager or semi hit but …Wikipedia says RAMJANE…ABOVE AVERAGE….AKELE HUM AKELE TUM …BLOCKBUSTER???

  • @srk… Sos budget 300million rupees Jthj..600million rupees…sos screens 2000+…jthj ..2500 +??? Jthj(established master class director with star casts with higher star power…sos(low key director…star casts compared wit sos..lower star power)…. Both still 100crores club…give both of d movies credit pls…

  • Raes.. Looks like a real quality and audience movie. D release date is perfect for Srk so wareva d case expect @least a super hit movie…with excellent content n no clash…yeah Bb or Atbb… Beating Pk… Honestly not sure though but 4 Srk… Anything can happen…all d best 4 all d big stars

  • @sss… Still causing more n more trashy feuds wit oda fans ryt?? Sometimes ur comments and analysis I enjoy them but come on @sss… No SrK real fan can ever call Ajay n Aamir side actors?? Yes Srk one man army like few stars too his star power should b d highest among all as we saw it wit Happy new year…but why calling HUGE STARS side actors?? Tumara marzi… Just want to say I read ur comments yes we have arguments wit u though I vowed not to involve wit any argument wit u….so just continue your good analysis but saying negativity comments on big stars completely ends up making your comments controversial!!! Nothing personal though

  • Ab SRK Ki Aukaat Nahi Rahi Ki Kisi Se Clash Kar Sake, Salman To Door Ki Baat Hai, SOS Ke Time Pe Salman Ke Naam Par Screen Book Kiya, OUTIMD Ke Time Pe Jitendrea ko Cheat Kiya. Ab Bhool Jaao. 7 Saal Se To Mein Dekh Raha Hu. Articles Hi Chaapte Hain Koyla Khan Ke. Box Office Pe To Kuch Hota Nahi. Billu 21-Disaster, My Name is Khan 71-Flop, Raone 114-Flop, Don 106-Semit Hit, JTHJ 101-Hit, Meenamma 208-Blockbuster & HNY 175-Hit.

    Kabhi Aamir To Kabhi Salman Kick Maar Kar Chala Jata Hai. SRK Football Ban Kar Reh Gaya Hai.

  • I wish –
    1. Bakri Eid (2015) – FAN
    2. Christmas (2015) – SRK-Rohit Film
    3. Eid-ul-Fitr (2016) – RAEES

  • The actor goes on to call the preference for festival release dates “stupid”, adding that, “Eid mein namaz padhte hain; Diwali mein puja karte hain (you read the namaz during Eid, and you pray during Diwali). [Now] it’s become all about releasing a film on a date… It’s so strange.”–SRK… LOLLL

  • Don’t talk about past…
    Yes king won most of the previous clashes….
    But time changes fast…
    If Salman n yrf decide to release there movie on eid, Excel Entertainment and srk will definitely change their date….
    Because everyone knows that Salman made eid a big release date and others won’t release there movies till salman’s movie is not ready for release..
    And if clash happens then for sure Bollywood will lose around 100 cr…
