Raees Director Tweets Shah Rukh Khan’s Film Is The Most Pirated One Of 2017; Producer Hints A Sequel
Shah Rukh Khan charmed everyone with his Raees act which was one of the biggest hit Bollywood films of Shah Rukh Khan last year (2017). The film, that also starred Pakistani actress Mahira Khan, was not just liked by everyone but the dialogues of the film were also appreciated a lot; it got a great response from viewers. If you are wondering whether a sequel to the movie will be made, I would say, “Maybe.” Yes, it seems that the makers are keen to have a sequel to the movie, since the director of the sleeper hit film Raees, Rahul Dholakia, took to Twitter to tweet that Raees was the most pirated movie in 2017. Hinting a sequel, he wrote, “#Raees most Pirated film of 2017. Now how does one react to this ? @ritesh_sid”
However, it was producer Ritesh Sidhwani‘s response to Dholakia’s tweet that caught our attention. Sidhwani’s reply read, “Look at the brighter side the audience we have for the sequel #RaeesReturns.” So, now does this mean a sequel to Raees is already on the cards? If this tweet has to be taken seriously, then fans can’t keep calm. Also, we wonder, in the sequel, will Shah Rukh be seen opposite Mahira Khan or the makers will have a surprise for their audience, considering the changed India-Pakistan ties ever since.

On the professional front, Shah Rukh Khan is currently busy shooting for Aanand L Rai’s film Zero, which also stars Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif. In the film, Shah Rukh will play the role of a dwarf. The title of the film was announced through a teaser, which was a throwback to the 80s, giving the perfect feel of retro cinema. The film is scheduled to release on Christmas 2018 weekend.
