Rain plays spoilsport for SRK’s ‘Raees’ shoot

The monsoon touchdown in Mumbai may have brought in a sigh of relief to millions of its residents, but the showers are said to have played spoilsport in the shooting of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming film “Raees”.

The film is currently under production here.

The 49-year-old, who is working tirelessly for Rahul Dholakia-directed “Raees” despite undergoing a knee surgery last month, tweeted: “Feel awful the whole of Raees team fighting against rain & time…my injury hampering Ravi Varma, Rahul & Maneka even more. Damn.”

Shah Rukh was advised rest by doctors, but the actor chose to work in pain as the crew had to finish some action scenes before the monsoon arrived.

Stunt director Ravi Varma is looking after the action scenes in the film, which also stars Farhan Akhtar, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Mahira Khan.

Co-produced by Farhan’s Excel Entertainment and Shah Rukh’s Red Chillies Entertainment, “Raees” is expected to release on Eid next year.




  • PK has crossed 100 cr, a first for any Indian movie to do overseas, and here we have Indicine putting up articles on shooting of a movie getting cancelled due to rain. lol.

    Guys they are shooting for a movie called Raees, it is not “Mughal-E-Azam”.

  • beware…our friend SSS can say raees could beat PK n earn 1000 cr worldwide but it fail cause there was rain in june ….

  • awwwww dont worry my king……. theres still a lot of time to be riles the movie…… get well soon and GBU and for your team raees ?????

  • This is a very important movie for SRK and his fans . SRK has not done a performance oriented movie after MNIK . His last good movie for me was Don 2 . But apart from these two he has given stupid movies like Ra.One, CE and HNY . JTHJ was also a boring romantic movie and it was disappointing to see such a movie from Yash Chopra Sir . Not only me but Honest fans will also agree that SRK has done bad movies in the last 3 years . Out of the upcoming movies of SRK i am most excited for Fan because it looks like a challenging role . I am also excited for Raees because of SRK and Nawaz Combo and it is an Excel Production . I am not all excited for Dilwale because it is made by Rohit Shetty . Collections is not the most important thing for me and i hope with Fan and Raees he can give stellar performances and good content oriented movies .

  • Now diwali for shivay.

  • Most eagerly waiting for the most awaited
    movie of 2016 ….!!!!??
    biggest hit of 2016 will be Raees only !

  • It doesn’t effect srk..He will rise and give his best performance after MNIK..
    Feel the pain,don’t hide it..

  • Raees will show Aukaat to tingu fans who are on cloud nine currently.

    Every dog has their day,it’s Aamir fans time now.
    Keep enjoying you chillar fans.

    Jealous insecure hypocrite aamir’s Dangal Pandey will sink without trace.

  • Whatever, I was badly waiting for the monsoon to hit.. I don’t care if it plays spoilsport for SRK’s ‘Raees’ shoot…

  • Srk used 2 back to back masala movies to cross 120 crore. Now lets sed how much Raees will do with ‘great content’.
    My prediction: 140 crore max on holiday, 100 crore max on non-holiday.
    Remember Don 2 released on Christmas with Don brand and couldnt even beat Ghajini, which released 3 years before.

  • Aamir’s PK will cross $45 million in overseas soon. That is more than double of MNIK overseas collections.
    Highest overseas grossers:
    2.Dhoom 3
    3.3 Idiots

    Aamir has 3 films, Hirani 2 films, Dhoom 1 film, Srk 1 film and KJo 1 film.
    So as per analysis, biggest overseas crowdpullers:
    2.Raju Hirani
