Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan along with Pakistani actress Mahira Khan recently began shooting for their upcoming movie ‘Raees’ being directed by Rahul Dholakia.
SRK has been very excited about the movie and had been in touch with the producers – Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani. So much so, that he, who is known for always arriving late on the movie sets, has been reaching before time everyday.
While the call time is 11am, SRK has been reaching an hour prior that is at 10am. And this postive energy and exuberance of the superstar has surely been transferring to the other people present on the sets too.

A source from the sets reveals, “The shoot has been going fantastic! Shah Rukh has been taking the energy on sets a notch higher. He has been reaching early, interacting with everyone on sets, shooting for extra hours.”
SRK has earned himself the repertoire of being late to the shoots, as confirmed by his friend and choreographer-director Farah Khan too, hence, the crew members were in for a pleasant surprise when he reached before time.
“When he reached early for the first time the team panicked as they thought they made a coordination error. However after they spoke to his team they breathed a sigh of relief,” added the source.
‘Raees’ had, apparently, gone on floors on April 10 with the preliminary scenes being shot, whereas SRK started filming on April 22.
Shah Rukh Khan plays an underworld don in the movie and Mahira plays his wife. The movie also features Nawazuddin Siddiqui and is slated to release in July next year.
