Raees movie starred Shah Rukh Khan, Mahira Khan and Nawazuddin is astounding to be the best grosser as compared to the same day release Kaabil revenge-drama featuring Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam. SRK’s Raees directed by Rahul Dholakia who has been doing brisk business since the day of release. It was also appreciated by the critics as they say it is the power packed performances of the hard-hitting dialogues and the foot-tapping jazz music. It revolves around the person who gets in involved in illegal liquor trade at a very young age and works for a notorious gangster Jairaj who smuggles alcohol illegally. While an honest police officer J. A. Majmudar wants to end this illegal liquor trade. Raees marks the return of angry young man Shah Rukh Khan who will be now seen in a Crazy Romantic drama Jab Harry Met Sejal movie along with Anushka Sharma.
