Superstar Shah Rukh Khan will be seen sharing the screen with Pakistani actress Mahira Khan and acclaimed Indian actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui in his upcoming film ‘Raees’. Shah Rukh is in all praise for his co-stars. He says that he must work hard to be par with them.
On Monday, at the launch of Dabbo Ratnani’s annual calendar, SRK said, “Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Mahira Khan are there in the film (Raees). Both of them are very accomplished actors. I think the cast is really wonderful. Now I would have to excel and perform like them.”
Shah Rukh will join the shoot of the film by the end of March. Mahira will be seen romancing with SRK in the film. Mahira gained popularity in India with the TV show ‘Humsafar’. SRK already had met Mahira and also seen her show on television and he is quite impressed with the actress.
SRK said, “(Director) Rahul (Dholakia) liked her. She suited the film a lot. I have seen a little bit part of her television stuff. I have met her and she is a marvellous actor.”
‘Raees’ will be produced jointly by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani.
