Since morning there are reports doing the rounds that Shah Rukh Khan has secretly flown down to Dubai to shoot the remaining portions of Raees with Pakistani actress Mahira Khan. But looks like Shah Rukh changed his plans as just a while ago he was captured by the paparazzi outside MNS leader Raj Thackeray’s house. SRK visiting Thackeray’s house has raised many eyebrows. Shah Rukh is awaiting the release of Raees which has Pakistani actress Mahira in the female lead. And that’s exactly the reason he was there. ANI quoted Raj Thackeray saying, “He (Shah Rukh Khan) had come to inform that rumours about Mahira Khan promoting Raees are false.”

At the launch of Raees‘ trailer, it was announced that it need be, the makers will get Mahira Khan to India to promote the film. Guess SRK had gone to the leader’s house to assure him that no such plans have been made. We all know that ever since the Uri attack happened, MNS has banned all the Pakistani actors. Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil faced a lot of trouble as Fawad Khan was playing a pivotal role in the film. MNS party had demanded Karan and Shah Rukh to replace Fawad and Mahira in their respective films. In fact MNS leaders even protested outside KJO’s office and house and threatened him to remove Fawad’s scenes from the film. However that was next to impossible as they had already been complete.
KJo’s ADHM released and we hardly got to see Fawad in the film. There were lots of speculations that KJo chopped Fawad’s scenes from the film due to the ban. Now SRK’s Raees will be releasing on January 25, 2017. And hopefully, this gesture by SRK will ensure a smooth release of Raees.
Shah Rukh Khan comments on Raees and Kaabil clash
SRK said “Actually humne bahut pehle decide kar liya tha because pehle dono filmein chabbis ko aa rahi thi. I think humne apna discussion wahaan khatam kar liya tha jahaan par humein maloom pad gaya tha ki dono filmein saath mein aa rahi hain. So we had decided with our exhibitors and distributors ki hum pachchis ko aa rahe hain. And I think Kaabil ab shaam ke shows mein aa rahi hai, we will come at the regular shows. So aisa kuch takleef ki baat nahin hai ki unke baad decide kiya unhonein pehle decide kiya. I think yeh logical decision hai chabbis ko chutti hai usse pehle agar aap thoda sa fayda lele evening shows ka ya day shows ka”
