Mahira Khan is due to make her debut in Bollywood as she joined Shahrukh Khan and others in Mumbai on the shoot of film Raees.
Shahrukh Khan will be in the lead role of a Gujrati rumrunner while Mahira will play the character of a Muslim girl. The film will show the 1980’s Muslim slum areas of Gujrat.
Nawazudding Siddiqui is playing the character of a tough policeman, Farhan Akhtar was offered this role but he couldn’t meet the shooting dates.
Earlier Shahrukh was heard saying that no one can play this character better than him, he might sound arrogant but he was humble to play this character.
Mathira has some work due on two of her Pakistani Films ‘Ho Mann Jahaan’ and ‘Bin Roye’. On the other hand Shahrukh Khan can be seen on the set of ‘Dilwale’ with Kajol, a film which is directed by Rohit Shetty and also stars Varun Dhawan and actress Kriti Sanon. The legendary couple of King Khan and Kajol can be seen together after a long time.
