The Raees trailer is finally here and you won't be able to stop looking at SRK

We saw the teaser of Raees almost a year ago and it left us wanting for more. Seeing Shah Rukh Khan play a ruthless gangster (and his age) and look menacing instead of dolling out his usual romantic fare was a refreshing change to say the least.

And, now after months and months of waiting, we finally have the teaser and the release date of the film inching close.


Raees stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and newcomer Mahira Khan and if the trailer is anything to go by, it's safe to assume that the film is going to be laden with masala.

Set in the 1980s, the film is based on the life of Gujarati gangster, Abdul Latif Shaikh. King Khan plays Raees aka Miyaan bhai, a bootlegger in the film. Siddiqui plays a police officer who has taken it upon himself to imprison Raees and bring him to justice. Think, smashing chases between two of the finest actors in Bollywood. Are you excited? Because you definitely should be.

Pakistani actress Mahira Khan plays Khan's love-interest. Oh, and before we forget, the film also has an item song by none other than Sunny Leone, who also makes an appearance in the trailer.


Raees is directed by Rahul Dholakia and is set to hit theatres on January 25. (Can the day come any faster?)

P.S- It's going to be insanely difficult to get the revamped version of Laila O Laila that is playing in the background out of your head. You've been warned.
