Superstar Shahrukh Khan launched the trailer of his upcoming action thriller ‘Raees’ today. He will be seen in a new avatar as an anti-hero, playing the character of Abdul Latif, a mafia don from Ahmedabad, whose illegal activities in business was thwarted by ACP Majumdar, played by the versatile Nawazuddin Siddiqui. The villainous role of SRK will be witnessed once again by fans after movies like Baazigar, Darr, Don, Don-2 and recently Fan (where he played a double role) and he brilliantly portrayed the role as an anti-hero. SRK breaking away from his usual ‘romantic-mould’ is itself saying a lot about the superstar’s ability and willingness to try something new and fresh. He is ever ready to experiment with roles even at the peak of his career at the age of 51. Raees, directed by Rahul Dholakia has some great dialogues, which is as as expected when two big stars form the crux of the movie.The movie also stars Mahira Khan and Farhan Akhtar.

Raees releases on January 25, 2017 clashing with Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil. The film also stars Pakistani actress Mahira Khan which drew a lot of controversy protested by the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) against the terrorist attacks in Uri. Critics believe that there will be competition within SRK and Nawazuddin’s roles; keeping Kaabil-star Hrithik Roshan out of it. Box-office records may well be broken come January 25.
