Farhan Akhtar back in Shahrukh Khan starrer Raees?

Now that the Gangs of Wasseypur actor has made it clear that hasn’t been offered Raees, we hear Farhan might be back in Rahul Dholakia’s much-talked about directorial venture which stars SRK

Rahul Dholakia’s Raees has been in the news ever since the filmmaker announced the project. Initially Shahrukh Khan and Farhan Akhtar were to play the lead in the film. While Khan is playing a don in the film, the Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara actor was suppose to play a cop. But soon reports did the rounds that Farhan decided to back out of Raees as he was keen to do Dev Benegal’s Bombay Samurai alongside Kareena Kapoor Khan. Since the dates of both Raees and Bombay Samurai were clashing, the filmmaker-actor-singer opted out from Rahul Dholakia’s film. However, Benegal’s film has taken a back seat which means Farhan calendar is not longer blocked. And though rumours were rife that Nawazuddin Siddiqui would replace the Shaadi Ke Side Side Effects star in Raees, the former has clarified that he was never approached for the film.

With Nawaz out of the picture there is a possibility that Farhan may eventually end playing the role of a cop in Raees. While talking to a leading daily, a source said, “After Happy New Year wraps up, Shahrukh will do a film for Aditya Chopra. Immediately afterwards, he will start Raees. Likewise, after wrapping up his sister Zoya Akhtar’s Dil Dhadakne Do, Farhan has a slot where he can fit in his dates with SRK. And if he can match dates with SRK’s, he is ready to consider coming back into Raees, in the role that was originally his.”
