In December last year, Shah Rukh Khan, along with producer Ritesh Sadhwani, met Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray to ensure a smooth release of the film.

In a meeting that lasted for almost an hour, SRK promised Raj that neither will he bring down Mahira to India for promoting Raees and nor will he work with any Pakistani actors in future.


Raees, which also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the lead role, is a story about a boot-legger. The film is slated to release on January 25, along with Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil.
