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.
