Interesting face! I think they will look fab together. Must say a very bold step by SRK. I know the makers chose her but they must take SRK's approval as I'm quite sure how sadly everything can turn into negativity and controversial topic with him. But, he's brave and I'm excited...Very excited.
Apart from acting, Katrina Kaif, has also stunned everyone with her amazing dance performances and item numbers in films. Be it 'Chikni Chameli' or 'Sheila ki Jawani,' she has amazed one and all. Recently, we also heard that she would be doing a special item number in Raees.
However, these rumours have been put to rest. As her spokesperson mentioned, "No, she isn't doing any dance in Raees. These reports are false. She has other films to finish."
So, we won't be seeing her in a special number in Raees. However, she can be seen doing an item number in her film with Siddharth Malhotra. Would you like to see that happen? Credits: Pinkvilla

‘Shah Rukh Khan Is Very Addictive’ – Raees Co Star Mohd. Zeeshan Ayyub
August 22, 2015
Mohammad Zeeshan Ayyub says his Raees Co Star and Superstar Shah Rukh Khan is Very Addictive and also talks about his fantastic character and role in Raees.
Known for his strong performances in Tanu Weds Manu Returns, Raanjhana and many more, Zeeshan Ayyub will be next seen in Phantom and Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees. In an interview with us, speaking about Raees, he said-
“I have shot with Shah Rukh Khan for 50 days and all i can say is he is very addictive. You just want to spend more and more time with him and understand what he wants to say. There is another schedule of Raees and i am looking forward to shoot with Shah Rukh Khan. I have a running character in Raees. It is a fantastic role.”
I don't really mind since Nawaz is a better actor but that's a silly reason, IMO, to not do the role. Both characters might be cops but they'd still be different and Raees is an altogether different film. Being part of a big film like Raees would've benefited his acting career much more.
agantuk, you don't think Nawaz would make for a strong opponent? He's a very good actor and much better than Farhan. The thought of SRK-Nawaz, two acting powerhouses, in the same frame and as opponents makes me even more excited for Raees. Nawaz had important roles in Kick and Bajrangi Bhaijaan and people loved him in them, shows he can also hack it in commercial/big films.
Some people have the wrong perspective of being versatile as there are dozen of different cop characters.
Farhan himself is not versatile as an actor in terms of portraying his "different" roles from whatever I've seen him. I'm glad he decided not to be part of the film for whatever reason in his head. As for me as a viewer I wish he would just focus on direction and challenge himself on that to shine more since I feel the commercial indian directors are below average and needed some boost to raise up their standards & competition) than acting and singing which are not his talent.
The problem is there is no one in his inner circle which can say that to him.... like dude stop it ! you are awesome director but acting and singing is not your forte, I have seen this trend of director wanting to be in front of the cameras instead staying behind it.
It reminds me of when Jordan went to become a "baseball player"
Sanyukta Iyer and Natasha Coutinho mirrorfeedback TWEETS @mumbai_Mirror The two will shake a leg to the 1980 chartbuster "Laila O Laila" for the upcoming crime-drama Ever since her face-off with a journalist on a talk show, from which she emerged dignified and graceful, it's been Sunny days for Sunny Leone with everyone from Aamir Khan and Varun Dhavan to Anushka Sharma and Alia Bhatt taking up for the actress.Since then, Sunny has bagged a special song in Sanjay Gupta's Kaabil, opposite Hrithik Roshan, has also become the brand ambassador's for the Government of India's No Smoking campaign alongside Deepak Dobriyal, been invited to a private luncheon by Aamir Khan (Mirror, February 8) and welcomed on the sets of his upcoming wrestling-biopic.
Now, Mirror has learnt that the 34-year-old actress will be shaking a leg with Shah Rukh Khan in Rahul Dholakia's crime-drama Raees. And the chartbuster they will sizzle to is none other than Qurbani's “Laila O Laila“ which featured Feroz Khan and Zeenat Aman.
Producer duo Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar, who are fans of the classic number, acquired the rights to Amit Kumar-Kanchan song which is being re-recorded and rendered with faster beats.
“Raees is set in the '80s and there was need of a song sequence. The makers unanimously selected “Laila O Laila“ which perfectly fits with the dark, gangster theme and period. It was suggested to Shah Rukh and it was his idea to get Sunny on board. A lavish set is being created in Mumbai and rehearsals are on in full swing,“ reveals a source close to the development.
The makers have planned a similar club set-up as seen in the original 1980 film with Sunny wearing a white, sequinned gown and a feathery headgear as she woos the Baadshah who plays bootlegger Raees Khan. In the film, his business is eventually thwarted by a police officer Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Khan's ladylove is played by Pakistani actress Mahira Khan.
Presently, Sunny is filming a solo hip-hop sequence for Jasmine D'Souza's One Night Stand also featuring Tanuj Virwani. “She will begin shooting for Raees next month. It will be a two-day schedule,“ the source adds.
Sunny in SRK film? The actress to feature in an item number in Raees Subhash K Jha
There’s no announcement yet, but expect one in the next few days. Sunny Leone will be seen sizzling with Shah Rukh Khan in an item number in Raees. Says a source close to the project, “Shah Rukh, director Rahul Dholakia and producers Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani felt the film needed that sizzling number, that tadka. And that’s how Sunny Leone came into the picture.” The details of the track are under process. But what can be said most confidently about this item song in Raees is that it would rival and equal Shah Rukh’s Ishq Kameena item song in Shakti with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Says the source, “This is a big leap for Sunny who has so far been avoided by A-list actors because their wives disapproved. Now with Aamir declaring he would love to work with Sunny, Shah Rukh has actually taken the plunge, breaking the taboo created among A-listers regarding Sunny’s past career.”
