"First day on 'Raees'. Hot but heartening. And KKR starts its match. Go boys. Cheering you from the sets," Shah Rukh posted on twitter

Shahrukh, who plays a Gujarati don in the film speaks about his role in an interview. Gujarati don, " earthy role, something that I have missed doing for so many years. Today, I have reached a stage in life where I would want to go in the morning on the sets and feel I have put my best foot forward. I was like this in the first seven-eight years of my career."

Speaking about his confidence in shooting ‘Raees’, King Khan said, "I have not even done a rehearsal for the film, but I can assure you that no one can do the film like me. It sounds extremely pompous and arrogant, but I am being humble at the same time”.

‘Raees’, directed by Rahul Dholakia, is slated for next year Eid release. The action thriller also features Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the pivotal role.
