Ritesh Sidhwani, the film’s producer, took to his twitter handle and declared the news.
He wrote, “Started filming in 2016 with 2nd Schedule on #Raees… Happy New year twitterati.”
The first schedule of the movie was wrapped up in June last year. The shooting was said to be initially delayed because of Khan’s knee injury.
Directed by Rahul Dholakia, the movie set in the 1980s also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Pakistani actress Mahira Khan in prominent roles.
