Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees shooting in Bhuj, Gujarat is on schedule, tweeted film’s producer Ritesh Sidhwani. His tweet comes a day after Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) members protested against the ongoing shooting of the film in the district, for his earlier remarks on “intolerance”.
SRK has recently reached Gujarat after wrapping up the Mumbai schedule of Raees directed by Rahul Dholakia.
Ritesh Sidhwani, who is also in Bhuj, tweeted: “No disruption on #Raees set in #Bhuj shooting on schedule with full cooperation from government & police force..” (Read: VHP protests shooting of Shah Rukh Khan’s film Raees in Bhuj)
