Shah Rukh Khan is breaking out of his tried-and-tested mould in Raees and that calls for applause. It takes a lot to be a superstar who is ready to experiment while at the pinnacle. In the Rahul Dholakia-directed Raees, SRK — Bollywood’s king of romance — is playing a bootlegger who has dialogues to kill for. As the Raees trailer launched today, its star again proves that when it comes to quotable quotes, he is always at the top.
Shah Rukh launched the Raees trailer while interacting with fans in nine different cities through video conferencing.

The nine cities that have been chosen to witness the Raees trailer first are Delhi, Indore, Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Mumbai and Moga.
Raees releases on January 25 when it will clash with Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil. The film also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Shah Rukh spoke about the film, himself and Nawazuddin Siddiqui. SRK also had a media interaction after the trailer launch.
