After pairing up with Salman Khan in “Kick” and “Bajrangi Bhaijaan”, Nawazuddin Siddiqui will now appear with Shah Rukh Khan in their upcoming film “Raees”. The recent buzz is that Siddiqui will play the character of Michael Jackson in a sequence.
In the film, Siddiqui is playing the role of a cop and will turn into MJ to raid a hideout, Bollywood Life reported. The scene is about a costume party where the cop enters in MJ’s look. Interestingly, Siddiqui is not only donning MJ’s look but he will also show some dance moves on a song which was shot recently.
On the other hand, Shah Rukh has already stolen hearts in his never-seen-before look in this film. He has shed his lover boy image to become a bad man, Miyanbhai, who is obsessed with nothing but success. The first look poster showed SRK in a bearded look, wearing spectacles and giving an intense look.
Directed by Rahul Dholakia, the story of “Raees” is set in the 1980s and has SRK play the role of a Gujarati bootlegger. The film also stars newcomer Mahira Khan.
“Raees” may clash with Salman Khan’s “Sultan” as both the films are set to be released the same time during Diwali. However, there were reports that the “Dilwale” actor may avoid “Sultan” and “Raees” clash by releasing his flick on another Friday. Also, SRK will entertain his audience with another film, titled “Fan”, which will be released on 15 April.
