Mumbai: Shah Rukh Khan’s much awaited film ‘Raees’ swings into action. The film that is set in the 1980s era in Ahemdabad also marks the debut of Mahira Khan. Ahmedabad has changed a lot since then in terms of architecture and manner of living and hence an entire new set is being constructed at ‘Film City’ in Mumbai. The team is recreating certain parts of Ahmedabad from that time.
Also, they have some action sequences which they would prefer to shoot indoors rather than on a real location. It is a massive set up and there is work going on around the clock. The team is looking into minor and intricate details and trying to ensure that the set is complete at the earliest.
Produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar, the film which will see the 'Humsafar' star playing the wife of a gangster (Shah Rukh Khan), will also feature critically-acclaimed actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui as a cop.
