Now this is big, like really big. There were a lot of rumors floating in about Nawazuddin Siddiqui replacing Farhan Akhtar in the forthcoming film, ‘Raees’ with none other than Shah Rukh Khan.
While everyone was looking forward to updates from this project, producer Ritesh Sidhwani has finally spoken up and cleared all doubts. It is true that Nawaz would be playing lead opposite Shah Rukh in Rahul Dholakia’s next and his character would be of a sharp cop.
While the film had to start its schedule this month, but due to some technicalities it has been pushed to February which has made, Farhan Akhtar step back as the dates were clashing with his schedule for ‘Rock On 2’. Well, this casting looks wonderful and damn, we are excited to see Nawaz and Khan on opposite sides.
The lead actress of the film would be revealed later and as for the set, the team is very excited to construct a set in Film City. While the release of the film depends on Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming film ‘Fan’, we are just keeping our fingers crossed…what do we say but let the chase begin!
Looks like we will be seeing more of the Kick star with King Khan himself! From working with Salman Khan to Shah Rukh Khan looks like Nawaz is banking the Khan films! Stay tuned for his upcoming films out in 2015!
