Mahira Khan, who was finally seen in the ‘Raees’ trailer which launched a few days ago, is reportedly going to complete shooting for the film in Dubai with Shah Rukh Khan.
Mahira has been out of India since the MNS called for a ban on Pakistani actors in Bollywood. There were reports that the actress’s role was chopped but this seems unlikely now that the trailer is out. A source told TOI, “Now, that the dust has settled down, the makers of the film decided to shoot the remaining songs with Mahira Khan who plays SRK’s love interest – but outside India and a country where nobody could object. They decided to fly to Dubai first and shoot one song in Abu Dhabi or Bahrain and then fly to Morocco for the second. It is all done with utmost secrecy and is very hush-hush till the songs are shot and the team flies back, so nobody finds out. Whatever patchwork remained was completed few days back with SRK in Mumbai. After the two songs are shot abroad, Raees will be complete.”
The shoot for the songs was meant to take place in Mumbai but makers have decided Dubai is a safer bet.
‘Raees’ releases on 25th January 2017.
