In a joint statement, Shah Rukh, Farhan and Ritesh said, “It was not an easy decision to move the film. We understand that this film is highly anticipated. However, a movie of such magnitude requires the appropriate showcasing and therefore, we have decided to shift our release date to 26th January 2017.”
‘Raees’ will see Shah Rukh playing a gangster who ran the illicit liquor business in Gujarat. The film also stars Mahira Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
