Looks like, troubles for Raees are never-ending. The Shah Rukh Khan starrer has been under the scanner for a while now because of its release date, which is clashing with Hrithik Roshan’s next film, Kaabil, produced by his father Rakesh Roshan. Both the projects are slated to release on January 26 next year.

After Fan, Khan will be seen in  Rahul Dholakia's directorial which is co-produced by SRK, and Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar’s Excel Entertainment.

However, as per reports in a daily, an insider revealed that Shah Rukh, along with the makers of his next, is considering shifting the release date of his film, yet again! Interestingly, the clash with Hrithik’s film is not the only reason for it, the bigger cause being the presence of Pakistani actor Mahira Khan in the film.

“SRK’s film is introducing Mahira. After the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) asked all Pakistani actors to return to their country in the wake of the Uri terror attacks, the makers are now worried this development can severely affect the business of the film,” said the insider. The source added that SRK, who is recently in Europe to shoot for another project with Anushka Sharma, had been coordinating with his team about his next step. “Because of the MNS order, the makers want to push the release date to avoid double losses. Also, they can’t afford to have the movie boycotted at the last moment due to the current tension between India and Pakistan. If the film is postponed, it will be a big win for Hrithik. Both Dilwale (2015) and Fan didn’t fare well at the box office. So, SRK will avoid taking a risk like that,” revealed the source.

The daily contacted Shah Rukh and Ritesh, but they remained unavailable for comments. Even Rahul and the representatives from SRK’s production house chose not to comment.

SRK re shoot with an Indian and save your career buddy.

I hope this is fake news like many here are saying. I am really looking forward to this movie, SRK plays grey characters really well. I haven't watched a good SRK movie in a long time, looking for reassurance with this movie from him.

side note mahira and hiritik will make cute hot couple

SRK is just paying for his bullying behavior. He did the same with BM and lost out with Dilwale. Again he was scared to come with Sultan and shifted date to clash with HR as he isn't as big as SRK when his film was booked way before. Now his film is stuck.

Nothing against Mahora but We have so many talented and beautiful actresses/ why is SRK choosing to promote and introduce a Pakistani to play the female LEAD?? Why wasn't the opportunity given to an Indian??? Why in our land and in our film industry are we promoting outsiders - when Soo many of our own people would have loved the opportunity??!! This needs to stop!!!!

Do you want to listen the truth why Mahira and not any current Indian actress? All I can say that its a small budget movie. The cost of Adobe paints ( white , peach and pink colors) photoshop runs into 7 to 11 crores per 20 minutes footage . Kareena isn't working, Katrina can't speak Urdu or deliver UP adaabs. Pv will not post more or even this so why should I waste my time

She plays a Pakistani in the movie. Its story loosely based on a real life DON who married a Pakistani girl. Plus, its Rahul Dholakia who chose her.


Yes we should support our Loyal actors like hrithik

Mr. ROshan would never punish innocent people for something others did!

i was not happy when srk shift it from eid but now it's necessary to push the date for sake mahira .. the girl worked so hard . she deserve to appreciate for his work not neglected because something she didn't do

Raees is going to be like Once upon a time in Mumbai. Same boring stuff every time. Copycats!

The makers have already denied this news thru Indicine, Girish Johar etc.

lol again? looks like Raees is turning in to the next Jagga Jasoos..

How can Salman and Shahrukh think of dancing and singing with Pakistani actors when our sons and brothers' pyre is burning in our backyard?

LOL and also that won´t help Hrithik.

3rd Flop for SRK , he must visit any Dargah for help. He needs blessings

No one is pushing anything. Just read it. Anyway, go and watch what you want tie synch why you other about clashes! No producer will share their money with you! So you care! Those ppl are rich and SRK is filthy rich so why act as u care of their well being! They are fine either way! Lol. Just chill

Good decision

Feel sorry for the girl knowing how she is causing trouble for the makers when she didn't do anything wrong.

He is scared of Duggu

good news for we hrithikians.
