The secret of a secrecy pact is out. Apparently Shah Rukh Khan and the producers of Raees, Excel Entertainment have made the team working on the film sign a secrecy pact. According to souces, “Anyone from the team who breaks this clause will face monetary losses as the makers will not pay them their sum.” The film is anyway in the news for all the wrong reasons and they surely don’t want to invite more.
Recently Raees was in the news for casting a Pakistani actress Mahira Khan in the lead. After the Uri attack, films with Pakistani actors like Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Raees and Dear Zindagi were in question for casting Pakistani actors. Rumours also said that Shah Rukh had taken a decision to cast an Indian actress in place of Mahira Khan for the film.
Shah Rukh’s Raees was already delayed and the makers are even now struggling to find a release date. Raees was suppose to clash with Salman Sultan on 2016 EID. After this, the team decided to release the film on 2017, Republic day, then it would clash with Hrithik’s Kaabil. News said that SRK wasn’t ready to shift his dates for his old buddy Hrithik but now it seems that a closed door meeting with the Roshans changed the whole game again. Raees still waits to find its release date and clearly the makers do not want anymore delay or speculations around their film.
