SRK, who is shooting for Rohit Shetty’s Dilwale in Bulgaria, tweeted: “@iamsrk: Day off in Bulgaria. Hav lil to do except teasing u all. The Raees teaser. http://t.co/vmLz7NBYC9 hope u lik it http://t.co/nANLGHYIW,” he tweeted.

With a few hours of the release of Raees teaser, Shah Rukh Khan’s fans made it trend on Twitter. The film is set to release on Eid 2016 and will clash with Salman Khan’s ‘Sultan’ that year.

SRK can also be heard saying the now famous tagline from ‘Raees’: “Baniye ka dimaag aur Miyanbhai ki daring.”

Earlier in the day, SRK had also released the first two posters of ‘Raees’

“The official first poster of #Raees is here! Have a look and let me know what you guys think!” Shah Rukh had tweeted.

The timing of the poster and teaser release is interesting as it comes just a day before the release of his good friend Salman Khan’s “Bajrangi Bhaijaan”.

While the two Khans, who seem to be back on good terms with SRK unveiling the poster of ‘Bajranig Bhaijaan’, have their films releasing this year but industry is abuzz with the box office clash next year when “Sultan” and “Raees” arrive in cinemas on Eid next year.

By the look of it, none of them is willing to back down. (With PTI inputs)
