Buzz around Raees has been like a never ending one. A new controversy would rise up everyday and this time the latest reports suggest that Shah Rukh Khan has left for Dubai along with the Raees team to complete the shooting of 2 songs and Mahira Khan will join him there and shoot for her remaining portions. The songs will be shot in Dubai and Morocco.
Now that the trailer of Raees has been released and it has opened to immensely huge response from the audience, things appear to have changed. Pinkvilla quotes a source saying, “Now, that the dust has settled down and the Raees trailer has got a great response the makers of the film decided to shoot the remaining songs with Mahira Khan who plays SRK’s love interest – but outside India and a country where nobody could object. Mahira has received a good response too in the trailer and the makers are more confident. They decided to fly to Dubai first and shoot one song in Abu Dhabi or Bahrain and then fly to Morocco for the second. It is all being done under the utmost secrecy and is very hush-hush till the songs are shot and the team flies back, so that nobody finds out. Whatever patchwork remained was complete a few days back with SRK in Mumbai. After the two songs are shot abroad, Raees is complete.”
A source told SpotboyE, “Pritam has composed a couple of songs for the film out of which one is definitely going to be included in Raees. The song could be shot in Morocco or Dubai as Shah Rukh’s schedule already includes a visit to these places.”
There are reports that the Mahira Khan has demanded that her role remain the way it was in the original or else should be fully removed. She doesn’t wish what happened to Fawad Khan in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil for her.
A source further informed Mid-Day that the leading lady has demanded that her role remain the way it was in the original or else nothing at all. She doesn’t wish what happened to Fawad Khan in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil for her.
“She wanted either a well-fleshed out role like the story originally had, or nothing at all. She wasn’t okay with a superfluous part like Fawad’s in ADHM. Though the makers tried to reason with her, they eventually conceded that she doesn’t deserve a raw deal. It was a deliberate move to feature her prominently in the trailer too,” the insider further elaborated.
One can only wonder if the reports are original or not because if this is really happening then, it surely is going to be great since we will get to see more of our Diva in Raees.
