Excel Entertainment’s ‘Raees’ has been in the news for quite some time, with much being rumoured about its cast. ��Shah Rukh Khan was announced as the film’s lead actor a while ago and has now gone on record to say no one else could do his role in ‘Raees’ the way he can.
DNA India quote Khan as saying, “I have not yet done a rehearsal for the film, but I can assure you that n one can do the film like me. ��It sounds extremely pompous and arrogant, but I am being humble at the same time… I am surprised that not many filmmakers dare to make such films anymore. ��I wonder why more such films don’t come to me…”
Speaking ��about his role in the film, the actor added, “It’s a very earthy role, something that I have missed doing for so many years. ��Today, I have reached a stage in life where I would want to go in the morning on the sets and feel I have put my best foot forward. ��I was like this in the first seven-eight years of my career.”
Currently, Khan is busy shooting for Maneesh Sharma’s ‘Fan’ and Rohit Shetty’s ‘Dilwale’.
Directed by Rahul Dholakia, ‘Raees’ will see Khan paired opposite Pakistani actress Mahira Khan. ��The film is expected to go on floors.
