2017 is here and all we can say is it has begun with a bang! Why we say so? Because Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees’ new poster is out! What’s exciting about this poster is that it doesn’t just have Shah Rukh on it but also Mahira Khan. After watching the trailer of Raees, Shah Rukh and Mahira’s chemistry left us for wanting more and now that they have starred on the poster of the film, we are head over heels in love with this onscreen pair. I mean, no.. seriously! SRK has looked great with most of his co-stars but here, with Mahira, he looks the best, I feel. It’s not one of those lovey dovy posters but this one is a rather intense one. “Tu shama hai toh yaad rakhna... Main bhi hoon parwana...,” reads the poster. King Khan took to Twitter to share the poster on Twitter this morning. This is not one of those typical movie posters but from what it looks like, this is one of the movie stills. But this is not it.. SRK has shared yet another poster which looks like a still from a song from the movie. He is quite a charmer in his bohemian avatar on this poster. "O #Zaalima...," he captioned the second poster.
So far the posters and the trailers have been getting a great response from viewers. The story of the film is compelling and it has been ages since we last saw SRK playing a negative role. The first song from Raees Laila O Laila starring Sunny Leone released last month and it was a rage! Seems like this Shah Rukh Khan and Mahira Khan starrer is gonna take the box office to storm.
